Herdsmen allegedly invade Oyo school, injure students, teachers (VIDEO)Published on March 30, 2023By Musliudeen Adebayo
Suspected Fulani herdsmen have invaded one of the pubic secondary schools in Oyo State.
It was learnt on Thursday that the herders invaded Community Grammar School, Alaropo Nla in Oriire Local Government Area of the state.
The herdsmen numbering over twenty allegedly invaded the school with their cattle and injured some of the students and teachers.
Some of the students and their teachers, among whom are Mr. Paul Olabode, were inflicted with sword and machete cuts, while many others were left with broken legs and hands.
A source disclosed that the school had just finished morning devotion and students were preparing to settle down in their classrooms to continue their second term examination when the herdsmen invaded the school farm with their cow grazing mindlessly on crops.
Efforts made by the students and the teachers to drive away the herdsmen were met with brutal resistance.
The school principal, Mrs. Grace Alamu, when contacted, confirmed the invasion to newsmen on Thursday.
Alama, via a telephone interview with DAILY POST, noted that the incident had been reported to the police.
“I am on my way to the school.
“Policemen are coming to the school this morning,” she said.
