Gov Dapo Abiodun 

Ogun State Commissioner for Education, Prof Abayomi Arigbabu on Tuesday, disclosed that the state government decided to shut down 12 public secondary schools ahead of first term vacation beginning next week Friday, December 10 to stem the tide of recent violence that has rocked some secondary schools in the state.

The affected schools were asked to proceed on vacation from Tuesday, November 30 after finishing the first term examination, though, the remaining secondary schools are to close for the term next week Friday, December 10.

Prof Arigbabu disclosed that the 12 schools affected are considered as flashpoints of reported unruly behaviour of some students against either the teachers or some other neighbouring schools and that the measure was one of the steps being taken by the state government to combat this ugly trend.

The Commissioner in a statement addressed to the Zonal Education officers said "the underlisted hotspot schools should commence their compulsory holiday with effect from Tuesday, 30th November, 2021. Kindly ensure the compliance of this in your different zones".

The schools are Egba High School, Asero, Asero High School, Itori Comprehensive High Schoo, Itori, Ofada Community Comprehensive High School, Ofada, Lafenwa High School,Lafenwa, Abeokuta.

Others are Egba Owode Grammar School, Owode, Community Comprehensive High School, Ijoun, Unity High School,Kajola Iboro,Ado-odo Ota and Eyini Comprehensive High School, Iboro

The rest are Government Science & Technical College, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, Lisabi Grammar School, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta and Methodist High School, Arigbajo.

It would be recalled that students of some secondary schools in the state had recently either engaged in cult-related free for all fight against students of neighbouring secondary schools or their teachers for enforcing discipline.
