Students riot over inability to take SSCE in Edo State

09:19 May 19 2022 Edo State

Description
The registered students were said to have arrived the school for the commencement of the exams but were shocked that no WAEC official was there to conduct the exam for them.

Angered by the reality of their missing this year’s exam, the students erupted in violence and vandalised the school properties including louvres and furniture.

A resident of the area who spoke to our correspondent, said they were taken aback by the incident, explaining that the student went or rampage when the principal, who registered them was not available to give a position on the matter.

“The school has been in existence for over 20 years and they have been taking the exam there for a long time. I don’t know what happened this time. But I think the principal has a lot of explanation to do.

“The matter was also reported to the police by the vice principal who was almost lynched by the angry youths. The situation has calmed down and hopefully the school will resume when all these is sorted out”, he added.

The premises of the school was like a ghost yard yesterday our correspondent visited as the school has been shut down.

Efforts to get reaction from the Edo State Police Command on the development was not fruitful, as spokesman of the Command, Kontongs Bello, would not respond to calls made to his mobile phone.
