  1. Only God knows the direction of education in Nigeria

    Schools have turned grounds for murder and death making me remember the phrase of Lucky Dube “they turn schools to prison”

    1. A serious investigation needs to be carried out if not it will give more room for more crimes in the school… On the other hand, students should learn to speak up when they are bullied or maltreated by their seniors. They should not die in silence. The school authority should create awareness for the students on who and where to lay their complents.

  2. Does shutting down the school ascertain justice for the dead?
    Or is this a mere cover up to bury the matter….
