Some pupils of Zappa Secondary School in Asaba, the capital of Delta State allegedly attacked one of their teachers in a drug-fuelled rage.
WuzupNigeria reports that the students were said to have taken some hard drugs fermented in a water container before they attack the male teacher.
The incident reportedly happened on Friday when the students, who have finished their first term examination, laid siege and attacked the teacher on his way home.
The teacher according to eye witness was rushed to Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Asaba for treatment as his forehead was broken.
It was also learnt that security men from A’ Division’ Police station were immediately alerted and arrested the pupils in the school premises.
Efforts made by our correspondent to reach the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya was not successful as several calls put across to her cell phone were not picked.
But an activist, Mr Victor Ojei, who rushed to the scene of the incident, decried the level drugs have caused in the state among secondary students.
“The teacher was attacked but has been rushed to FMC for treatment. Hard drugs now being consumed by secondary school students in Delta State, these kids now take all forms of hard drugs and get intoxicated to start fighting their teachers, they broke his forehead”
“The state government needs to support/fund or facilitate public schools with funding to bring in Anti-Cult groups, Man o war, Police and Non Governmental Organizations.
“Each time the principal calls for help to curb or contain these children who have gone wild due to hard drugs they will have to pay minimum of N15,000 or no support will come.
“These kids needs to be lectured on integrity and the need to avoid joining various cult groups.”
