Osun Deputy Governor, Titi Laoye-Tomori, has ordered the shutdown of Government Technical College, Osogbo, and Osogbo High School, indefinitely over disturbances by the students.
Students of both schools embarked on a protest on Thursday.
This was disclosed on Saturday in a statement by the Permanent Secretary, Osun State Ministry of Education, Lawrence Oyeniran. The statement said the closure was to curtail any further disturbances in the schools. It advised parents and guardians to warn their children and wards to stay away from acts capable of causing public disturbance.
“While the closure is being effected, parents and guardians are advised to warn their children and wards to desist from acts that are capable of causing public disorder in the two schools and beyond. Consequently, security agencies have been directed to take charge of the two schools and maintain peace,” it said.
The statement added that the activities of a few students had led to malevolent destruction of valuable property in Osogbo High School, running into millions of Naira.
