Oyo Govt. Orders Removal of Illegal Structures Adjoining UMC School, Molete
Oyo State Government has given 7-day ultimatum to occupants of illegal structures adjoined to UMC Demonstration School, Molete, Ibadan to remove their valuables and vacate the space.
Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran, who disclosed this, urged them to immediately vacate the entire area as well as the vicinity of the school as the adjoined structures were never part of the plan.
Dr. Adeniran said that the Board received petitions from the authorities of the School that one Shehu Hammed, a self-acclaimed chairman, Schools Based Management Committee of the school has been encroaching into the space and erected the illegal kiosks.
He explained that the man had been arrested and handed over to the Police for questioning and investigation.
Dr. Adeniran further affirmed that the arrest and subsequent demolition became imperative following outcry by management of the public school that criminal elements had turned the area into hideouts for carrying out their nefarious activities thereby making the environment unpleasant for learning.
