Pandemonium As Secondary School Students In Ogun Attacks DPO


The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Obantoko Division in Adatan , Abeokuta,  Ogun, SP Alimeke Ignatius and his men were reportedly attacked by some rampaging students of two secondary schools in Abeokuta. 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the police officers were attacked during a serious  fight between students of Egba Comprehensive High School and Asero High School both in Abeokuta. 

It was gathered that the students of the two school had engaged themselves in a clash when men of the Obantoko police station were called to arrest the situation.

It was further gathered that, the students who threw  stones and other objects  at themselves blocked the main road, causing tension among the residents of the area.

Alimeke and some of his men who raced to the scene of the incident to maintain law and order were allegedly injured by the students.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) , DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the incident to newsmen.

Oyeyemi explained that the students of Egba Comprehensive High School and Asero High School were engaged in a fight and the police from the Obantoko station were called to take charge of the situation.

"The DPO was hit by stones. The students were throwing stones and other objects at themselves during the fight," Oyeyemi said.

When asked if arrest were made, he said : "We can not arrest the students because they are minors. We can only detain and counsel them, after which they will be released," he said.

Meanwhile, the state chapter of the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC) has condemned the attack, describing it as uncivilised and unwarranted.

Mr  Samson  Popoola, State Chairman of PCRC, in a statement signed by his media aide, Babatunde Odeyemi, condemned the public disorder by secondary school students in the state recently.
