Ogún Commissioner For Education Warns Pupils Against Crime

Pupils in Ogun State culpable in criminal acts will be sent to juvenile homes to undergo character reformation.

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

Professor Arigbabu tendered an apology on behalf of the Ogun State Government to the police over the unruly behaviour of some pupils of Egba High School and Asero High School in Abeokuta.

The pupils had earlier assaulted the Divisional Police Officer 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 the government would no longer spare pupils 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.

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

Responding, Mr. 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.

Pupils of the two schools assaulted the DPO and some other police officers on Wednesday as they were attempting to quell fight between the two schools.
