Parents, student face prosecution for assaulting principal, teacher — Ogun commissioner

Ogun State Commissioner for Education, Prof Abayomi Arigbabu, has insisted that an SS3 student of Agbara Grammar School in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state, Akanni Olawale, who allegedly assaulted one of the teachers as well as his parents will soon have their day in court.

Trouble was said to have started on Wednesday, February 14, when the Principal of the school, Mr Ajibola Olanrewaju, reportedly seized Olawale’s uniform for allegedly behaving unruly and in a manner that constitutes a lack of respect.

The principal was also said to have maintained that since Olawale had gone to register for the May/June West African Senior Secondary School Examinations in another private school, he has no business parading himself as a student of the school, hence, the decision to seize his uniform.

A source who spoke with our correspondent said, “Olawale would, however, not take this kindly as he went back home and stormed the school some minutes later with his parents.

“All efforts to pacify and explain the situation of things to the parents failed as they started attacking the principal, and it was in the course of this that the student, Olawale, slapped one of the teachers and tore his clothes.”

The Commissioner for Education,  Arigbabu, when contacted on Sunday, confirmed that his office had been notified of the incident and that the student and the parents would soon be made to answer for their deeds in court.

The commissioner said, “Yes, I am aware of the incident; it is condemnable, and such won’t be allowed in our school. I am in touch with the relevant authorities, and I can tell you that the boy and his parents will be prosecuted.

“I learnt that the parents are already begging, but I have insisted that they will get to court. It is a challenge that we have had in the past when some of these parents were joining their children in attacking the teachers, but since one of the parents bagged six months of community service, the rubbish has stopped.

“So, for this one too, the state government will prosecute those involved; that is the only way to send signals to others that may want to travel this unpopular and crude way.”

The Chairman of Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools,, Ogun State chapter,  Seun Agbesanwa, while condemning this incident, urged the state government to ensure that appropriate sanctions are meted out to those involved in the invasion and alleged assault on both the teacher and principal of the school.
