The principal who was represented by Comr. Cresc Okotie alleged that on Friday last two weeks, “I was on ground after after closing and I saw the troop of students coming towards our school and I inquired about where they are going and they told me they are looking for a friend.
But to my surprise, some of our students that were holding Student Union meeting were being attacked by matchetes under my nose. I accosted them and they ran away just to regroup to come back but before they came we have left.
“Today being our Inter-house Sports day, they came again in large number and the Principal had to call the security apparatus for our protection.
“If not for their timely arrival, we don’t now what would have happened, I don’t know why they keep coming to our school to cause trouble.
Speaking further, the principal held that the issue has become a reoccurring issues around us and we are appealing to the state government to investigate these students because they are suspected cultists with their activities.
When contacted, the principal of Oharisi Secondary school denied the allegations, saying in his reply via text message said, “Pls, students of Oharisi sec sch are well behaved students.
