Senior Secondary School Students Attack Teacher In Ogun

A group of ten senior secondary school students in Ogun State have reportedly attacked a teacher named Kolawole Shonuga.

The incident occurred at Isanbi Comprehensive High School, Ilisan-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area of the state, on Tuesday.

This happened following a moment that the teacher stopped one of them from cheating during an examination in the school.

Shonuga, caught one 18-year-old Ashimi Adebanjo, cheating and seized his paper while invigilating the unified examination for the SS 1 Art class students.

The students ganged up against the teacher after school hours, and beat him up at the school’s gate.

An anonymous witness said one of them, Kazeem Adelaja hit a stick on Shonuga’s head while others were beating him.

Police from the Remo Division later pounced on the students and arrested about ten of them.

Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, Omotola Odutola, confirmed the incident.

Odutola said Shonuga had made a formal report on the alleged assault at Remo Police Division.

She also confirmed the arrest of the ten suspects.

The State Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools, Felix Agbesanwa frowned at the incident and insisted that the students must face the wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent.

He said “The incident is true and I have been briefed. Our stand is that any student who raises his hand against his teacher should face the wrath of the law.

“There’s no going back on that. No student must raise his hands against the teacher, whether Ogun Teach teachers or permanent teachers, a teacher is a teacher.
