A video of a parent complaining bitterly about how the pupils have been locked inside the school premises since morning without parents having access to their children has gone viral.

The aggrieved parent said it would have been better for the task force to give prior notice to parents so they can come in to take their children instead of locking them inside the school.

According to reports, the school premises was locked over the failure of its management to pay their tax.

Reacting to the viral video, the government in a statement released condemned the act of the task force members adding that the state government will not condone such an act.

The statement read, ”The attention of the Government of Ekiti State has been drawn to a viral video alleging that enforcement officers of the Ekiti State Internal Revenue Service sealed off a private school, with children inside.

“The circumstances surrounding this event are being investigated and a comprehensive statement will be issued once concluded. At this material time, the referenced school has been visited and the state government can confirm that it is untrue that children are being held.

“Without prejudice to the outcome of the investigation which will be made public very soon, the government assures the public that it is totally unacceptable for children to be maltreated in any way in Ekiti State, and government would not condone such.

“Governor Kayode Fayemi’s administration has been consistent in the fight against discrimination of any kind, and remains committed to ensuring schools are safe spaces for learning and moral instruction.”
