Ogume Grammar School Delta Closes; Female Student Murdered in Cult Clash.

 

NAIJANEWS reports that the state government has reportedly shut down Ogume Grammar School in Ogume, Delta State, following a cultist clash within the school grounds that resulted in the death of a female student and the destruction of property worth millions of naira.

 

 

When hoodlums invaded the school with various weapons last week, a female student was killed and properties worth millions of naira were destroyed.

 

 

It was gathered that the hoodlums also assaulted the principal before she was rushed to the general hospital, Kwale for treatment.

 

 

The school’s ICT centre, principal’s office, her car and the administrative office amongst others were burnt down by the rampaging cultists.

 

 

The State Commissioner for Secondary Education, Mrs. Rose Ezewu, announced the closure of the school on Wednesday, October 20, in Asaba during a meeting held with the leaders of Ogume community.

 

 

Mrs. Ezewu said that the decision of the state government to close the school was in the best interest of the community and the state in general as it was designed to guarantee the safety of teachers and students of the school.
