Journalists learned that the 19-year-old student with some of his mates who are supposedly his gang members, landed repeated punches on the principal within the school premises.

Osun State Commissioner for Education, Folorunso Oladoyin expressed his reaction to the incident. He said it was totally “condemnable, sickening, disturbing and disheartening that a student of a public secondary school could be involved in such a morally absurd behavioural conduct.”


To the Commissioner’s surprise, students of public schools in Osun are known to be disciplined, cultured and well behaved, but the 19-year-old culprit and his gangsters have performed a terrible act and will not go unpunished.

He however expressed gladness that decency and discipline were on a daily basis gaining momentum in all public schools, and the administration of Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola will not compromise the laid down standards.

Oladoyin reiterated the resolve of the state government to make scapegoats of any student caught in any act of indiscipline by being made to face the full wrath of the law, and that incidents like such will not be tolerated in schools.

The Education Commissioner counselled students on the need to face their studies squarely rather than engaging in truancy and hooliganism and appealed to parents and guardians to keep tabs on the activities of their children and wards before and after school hours.

In the meantime, the teenager and his gang awaits detention as men of the Nigerian Police Force further investigate the matter.
