Police Arrest 10 SSS Students For Assaulting Teacher Who Stopped Exams Malpractice

The Ogun State Police command on Sunday in Abeokuta said its men arrested 10 Senior Secondary School (SSS) students alleged to have assaulted a teacher.

SP Omolola Odutola, the police public relations officer in Ogun, said the students’ arrest came after the victim, Kolawole Shonuga, made a formal report to the police on the alleged assault.

The teacher had told the police that he prevented one of the students from being involved in malpractice during an examination in the school.

The incident occurred on Tuesday at Ishanbi Comprehensive High School in Ilisan-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that Mr Shonuga while invigilating the unified examination for the SSS 1 arts class students, caught one Ashimi Adebanjo cheating.

He had gone on to seize the 18-year-old student’s examination paper.

It was reported that after school hours, some students formed a gang to waylay the teacher at the school’s gate.

Ms Odutola disclosed that police from the Remo Division later pounced on the students and arrested 10.

“The police have commenced investigation into the assault on the teacher, and the state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, has ordered that the perpetrators face the full wrath of the law,” she said.

Reacting to the incident, the state chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS) in Ogun, Felix Agbesanwa, frowned at the incident.

He insisted that the students face the consequences to serve as a deterrent.

“The incident really happened, and I have been briefed. Our stand is that any student who raises his hand against his teacher should face the wrath of the law,” he said.
