About 20 youths wielding cutlasses and other dangerous weapons on Thursday invaded Ifeoluwa Grammar School in Osogbo to cause chaos.
The state government has now shut down the school indefinitely, following the development.
The spokesperson of the Osun State Police Command, SP Yemisi Opalola who confirmed the incident said about 20 youths invaded the school.
“We received a distress call from Ifeoluwa School, Osogbo that a group of youths numbering about 20 invaded the school with cutlasses and other dangerous weapons.
“On receipt of this information, we deployed men to the scene and a suspect was arrested at the scene with a machete cut on his left arm and head. He was rushed to Osogbo Central Hospital for treatment.”
However, the state government in a statement by the Coordinating Director, Ministry of Education, Kehinde Olaniyan, explained that the closure was to prevent the breakdown of law and order occasioned by the invasion of the School by hoodlums and cultists masquerading as students.
The statement read in parts, “This is to inform the general public especially parents, guardians, and students of Ifeoluwa Co-Educational Grammar School Osogbo, that the Honourable Commissioner for Education has directed that the School be closed down temporarily until further notice.
“This step is necessary to prevent the breakdown of law and order occasioned by the invasion of the School by hoodlums and cultists masquerading as students.
“Parents and guardians are advised to keep their wards at home while the closure lasts. The Ministry is working round the clock to ensure that the hoodlums are arrested and prosecuted accordingly
