Ogun govt to send errant students to juvenile homes

Students in Ogun State culpable of criminal and unlawful acts will be sent to juvenile homes to undergo character reformation.

The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu, stated this in Abeokuta when he visited the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Lanre Bankole.

Arigbabu tendered apology on behalf of Ogun State government to the police over the unruly behaviour of some students of Egba High School and Asero High School in Abeokuta.

The students had earlier assaulted the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Obantoko, also in Abeokuta.

The commissioner described the assault as appalling and unacceptable.

He warned students in the state to desist from criminal acts, saying government would no longer spare students on account of their ages, but make them to face the full wrath of the law.

He commended the collaborative efforts of the police to arrest unruly behaviours in schools.

Arigbabu assured that government would address all forms of indiscipline through surveillance and interaction with students by the police and government officials on good conduct.

Responding, Bankole noted that the incident was of mutual concern to the ministry and the police and said the latter had always been proactive in schools and in the state at large.

Students of the two schools assaulted the DPO and some other police officers on Wednesday as they were attempting to quell brigandage by the students. (NAN)
