The Delta State Government has suspended five students of Zappa Mixed Secondary School, Asaba, indefinitely, for assaulting their teachers.
Patrick Muoboghare, the state Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, made this known in an interview in Asaba on Tuesday.
Mr. Muoboghare said that he visited the school when he received the report that some students of the school assaulted their teachers.
He said that at the scene, four males and one female student, descended on some of their teachers while they were being disciplined for misconduct.
According to him, the suspension will remain in force until the parents of the affected students signed an “undertaking on their behalf that they will be of good conduct.”
“For what I saw and heard that the students did to their teachers, they will remain at home until their parents come to sign undertaking of good behaviour on their behalf.
“After that, any future complaint about any of them will attract outright expulsion from the school,’’ he warned.
He called on students of the school and others in the state to be of good conduct at all times, warning that the ministry would be “tough” on those of them who would behave irresponsibly.
“We want to produce students who will be good ambassadors and source of pride to their parents, the school and the society,” he said.
