“The mayhem was said to be ignited by the girl’s mother and other accomplices, thereby, causing tension in the school.
“The state government is taking further action, to serve as deterrent to other unguided parents and wards,” he said
He appealed for caution, emphasizing that the present government has zero tolerance for impunity, while charging students, parents and all stakeholders to take advantage of Gov. Seyi Makinde’s free qualitative education programs.
