There was palpable tension as thugs were allegedly hired by students of Community High School, Ijoun, in Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State, on Monday, to attack and send their teachers away from the school.
The incident occurred barely one week after some students of Unity High School, Kajola, Ibooro, in the same local government also reportedly hired thugs to beat up their teachers.
A source, who did not want his name in print, said that the hoodlums stormed the school premises with weapons and descended on the teachers, inflicting varying degrees of injury on them.
The source said the attackers invaded the school at about 10.45am on Monday and freely used weapons such as machetes and axes on Messers Stephen Oyelekan and Kayode Olatunji, before fleeing.
The matter was said to have been reported at the Eegua Police Station while the victims had been taken to hospital for treatment.
Also, the principals of Junior and Senior Secondary Schools, Mr. Sowunmi and Kayode Amusa respectively, were said to have informed the Adele of Ijoun Community, Chief Olaleye Emmanuel, and the head of the Amotekun in the community.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said although he had heard about the incident, he had not been formally briefed.
