A 19-year-old student of Oduduwa College, Ile-Ife has been arrested by the Osun state police command for reportedly beating the school principal, Mr Ademola Sanusi to coma on Friday.
Though why the student attacked the principal with his “gang members” is unknown, it was however learnt that teachers in the school fled the scene to avoid being beaten alongside the principal, The Nation reports.
The student who is said to be the arrowhead of the evil act is presently being detained at the state police command, and is helping the police to fish out his other colleagues who fled before the arrival of the police.
It was gleaned that, the teacher was punched from the right, left and centre by the violent students who descended on him and further threatened to teach him the bitter lesson of his life.
Speaking on the matter, the spokesperson of the police command in the state, Mrs Yemisi Opalola confirmed the beating but said that the perpetrator of the act had been arrested
The police spokesperson further told Nigerian Tribune that investigations are ongoing on the matter with the assurance that, the perpetrators of the callous and inhuman act would not go scot-free.
She, however, hinted that relevant clues that would help the police in their investigations are now being gotten from the arrested offender and expressed optimism that, in no distance time, the law would take its course.
Osun State Commissioner for Education, Folorunso Oladoyin also condemned the act he described as indecent and uncultured.
Oladoyin, however, warned against such callous and rudely acts in the future saying, such incidents will not in any form or manner be tolerated henceforth in all Osun public or private schools.
Oladoyin vowed that that the 19-year-old culprit and his gangsters will not go unpunished.
