Wednesday 1st December 2021: The Oyo State Government has suspended a female student of Jericho High School, Ibadan, for allegedly assaulting male peer in company of her mother.
The state’s Commissioner for Education, Rahman Abiodun Abdu-Raheem, made this known in a statement on Tuesday, in Ibadan.
Abdu-Raheem said that the suspended student in company of her mother recently invaded the school with hefty thugs and miscreants, alleging that they assaulted a male student, teachers and other parents during an ongoing PTA meeting.
“The mayhem was said to be ignited by the girl’s mother and other accomplices, thereby, causing tension in the school.
“The state government is taking further action, to serve as deterrent to other unguided parents and wards,” he said
The Commissioner called for calm while appealing for caution and emphasizing that the present government has zero tolerance for impunity.
He also charged students, parents and all stakeholders to take advantage of Gov. Seyi Makinde’s free qualitative education programs.
