Mr. Inok Abraham, the Principal of Community Secondary school, Idung Iniang, Eket local government area of Akwa Ibom state has lamented about the high rate of students in his school who are into cultism, armed robbery and other ill social vices.
CRIMECHANNELS gathered that Mr Inok who spoke with Journalist, said that his school is often used as initiation ground for cultists and operations of hoodlums and armed robbers.
He said, ”There is no perimeter fence in the school and because of that thieves, hoodlums and cultists make this school their boat.”
“The school is terrible or what I may call a strong hold for cultists. They come here to initiate children even while the classes are going on in the afternoon.”
“You will see the cultists from the bush with mufti entering the school premises. While you are running after them this way they go out the other way.”
He also said that there isn’t enough classroom in the school that will accommodate the increasing population.
Asked what he wanted the government to do about the community school, he responded, “If the state government wants the school to be what they actually want it to be, I want them to extend the same humanitarian service they are doing in fencing public schools in Uyo to Eket and its environs.”
“We need a perimeter fence, once there is a perimeter fence here, there will be security in the school.”
“If the government put a fence around the school, then I think our problem would be almost 80 per cent solved, “Mr Inok said.
