Osun State government has ordered immediate closure of Baptist High School, Gbodofon, Osogbo, as some irate students engaged teachers in physical duel and vandalized school properties.
Commissioner for Education, Mr Oladoyin Folorunsho gave the order while inspecting the school to assess the level of damage by the irate students.
It was gathered that some students and teachers in the school engaged physical fight, wielding cutlasses and sticks, a situation that caused tension in the area.
A student who pleaded anonymity told journalists that the duel started last week Wednesday when some unknown students stormed the school.
“We saw some students last week Wednesday in our school armed with machete and this made everyone to run for their lives.
“Although, hardly will a month pass that we don’t experience something like this and whenever such occurs, some of the irate students usually lock our teachers in their staff room.
