Ogun school looted and ransacked by hoodlums; students sent home
Residents of Alaaguntan in the Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State were alarmed to discover the Baptist Day School, the neighborhood's primary school, empty on Monday following an alleged break-in at midnight.

According to information obtained by INFOGONG, the thugs shattered the ceiling of the school to gain access to the classrooms, where they took valuables.

According to reports, the burglars took some of the school's teachers' personal papers as well as chairs, tables, and bells from the classrooms.

The school is a three-block complex of classrooms that serves a large number of students from Elebute and Alaaguntan areas of Ogun State.

For security reasons, a teacher who only wanted to be known as Adeyemo told our correspondent that she arrived at the school on Monday only to discover expensive stuff missing.

He bemoaned the fact that the school, which was constructed by the construction firm Lafarge Plc, was furnished with cutting-edge amenities that the gang had stolen.

He remarked, "Perhaps the contemporary seats and tables the company installed in the classroom lured the robbers.

"We were surprised to see the school empty when we arrived on Monday.

"The community head has been informed, and he has agreed to take action,"

Abdulwaheed Onigbinde, the village chief of Elebute, verified the event to our correspondent and added that the thugs also stole electricity wires.

"I've been told that some bandits broke into the school and stole chairs, tables, and communal wiring," he claimed.

"The Baale of Alaaguntan and I will meet this morning (Thursday) to discuss our options.

We will report the case to Lafarge before heading to a police station because the building was constructed by them.

According to information provided by our correspondent, students who returned from break on Monday found their classrooms empty.

The school administration reportedly told them to go home after promising to look into the situation.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the public relations officer for the Ogun State Police, said that the incident had gone unnoticed by the command.

But he pledged to investigate it.
