Few months after the abduction and eventual release of the six students of the Lagos Model College, Igbonla, Epe, four out of the six students have returned to the school to continue with their academic pursuits.
Speaking on the development, the Principal of the School, Mr. Bajo Olugbenga, said the two others will soon join their colleagues, while identifying the four that resumed school as Agbaosi Judah, Yusuf Faruq, Rahmon Isiaka and Jonah Peter.
Recall that the Permanent Secretary, State Ministry of Education, Mr. Adesina Odeyemi, who was on an inspection visit to the School, said he was in the school to see how it was progressing after resumption.
He noted that the students have responded well especially in Igbonla, adding that he was positive that more students would resume before the end of the week.
According to him, “none of the six students was forced to return to the school. When the students were rescued, they were given the options of changing their school but they unanimously insisted that they preferred to return to the same school to continue with their education.”
Odeyemi added that the school security system has been enhanced with two watch towers for surveillance, the perimeter fence has been raised and the compound is well illuminated at night to ensure that anything can be seen from afar.
“In addition, there is increased security patrol, alarm system has been installed and the students have been tutored on how to respond and gather when they hear the alarm”, he disclosed.
