Several students were injured and properties vandalized on Thursday when students of Government College, Ibadan (GCI) and Apata Community Grammar School engaged one another in a free-for-all fight in Oyo State.
Witnesses say all commercial activities were halted in the Apata-Ganga area of the city during the skirmish.
The trouble reportedly started a day earlier when a student of Apata Community Grammar School, simply known as ‘Idan’, allegedly manipulated a gambling game against some students of GCI.
The purportedly swindled students of GCI reportedly mobilized their colleagues to mete out justice on the accused ACGS student which degenerated into a major inter-school clash.
When contacted, the state police command said no vehicle was vandalized, adding that it was only a mere argument among the students.
