Education Commissioner Threatens To Expel Secondary School Students In Alleged Gang Fight

By CrossRiverWatch Admin

The Cross River State Ministry of Education has threatened to expel Secondary School students from Government Secondary School Ikot Ansa Calabar if found culpable of the recent alleged gang-related activities in the school.

The Commissioner for Education, Dr. Stephen Odey in a visit to the school on Thursday said the visit is necessitated due to the disturbing viral video portraying gang-related activity in the school.

In the video in circulation, Senior Secondary Two (SS2) students are alleged to have imported gang members to fight their senior counterparts of SS3.

The Commissioner upon his arrival in the school, addressed the students and ordered for “immediate investigation into the issue, as all involved will be severely punished.”

He reiterated that all involved would face expulsion and will never be admitted into any school in Cross River State, promising to collaborate with the Department of State Services (DSS), and the Police to deploy some of their men to the school for surveillance, warning that, “cult-related activities will never be condoned in the State.”

The one-time Senator further admonished the students to be good ambassadors of Cross River State and make their parents proud rather than indulge in vices that will destroy their lives and future.

The Commissioner upon arrival met the Divisional Police Officer of Federal Housing Police Station, CSP.  Innocent E. Ayabotu who addressed the students on the dangers of gangsterism.

The DPO was invited by the school Principal Obono Ubana Ofem.
