When contacted, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr. Jamiu Olawumi, confirmed arrest of the students.
Olawumi said, “Any student that behaves in a manner inimical to the peace of the society, of school or his fellow students would face the law of the state. So, people who were using dangerous weapon on themselves; three of them have been arrested and will be charged to court.
“If they are minor, they will face juvenile court and if they are adults, they will face regular court and will be dealt with accordingly. We will not tolerate nonsense from anybody. We will not condone indiscipline in our schools.”
