A 19-year-old student, Adeyeni Adejuwon of Oduduwa College, Ile-Ife in Osun State has reportedly beaten his school principal, Ademola Sanusi to stupor.
The student has been arrested and detained at the State Police Command Headquarters in Osogbo.
Western Post gathered that the student was rebuked for not dressing properly to school but left and return to the school with his father and some thugs who unleash mayhem on the principal.
It was further gathered that the student and his gang members subjected the Principal to repeated punching in the school premises.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Yemisi Opalola who confirmed the incident said the student stormed the school with his father and a gang of thugs to beat the principal.
Opalola disclosed that the principal reported the issue at the police station that he was punched severally in the face by the thugs and that they also tore his clothes while beating him.
She added that the student and his father have been arrested while effort is on to arrest his gang.
According to the PPRO “One Adeyeni Adejuwon, a Senior Secondary 3 student at Oduduwa Secondary School, Ile-Ife, Osun was reported to have led his gang to beat Mr Sanusi Ademola, the principal (1) of the school. The student, accompanied by his father and some thugs beat the principal on Monday for allegedly scolding him for improper dressing.
Also reacting to the incident, the State Commissioner for Education, Mr. Folorunso Oladoyin said the culprit and his gangsters will not go unpunished no matter what it takes.
While describing students of public schools in Osun as disciplined, cultured and well behaved, Oladoyin said the act was totally condemnable, sickening, disturbing and disheartening that a student of a public secondary school could be involved in such a morally absurd behavioural conduct.
The Commissioner who expressed gladness that decency and discipline were on a daily basis gaining momentum in all public schools explained that the administration of Gboyega Oyetola will not compromise standards.
Oladoyin warned that such incidents will not in any form or manner be tolerated henceforth in all public or private schools in the State.
