Igbonla Six: Two Rescued Pupils Fail To Resume
Is it the case of once bitten, twice shy?
Perhaps they are yet to get over the trauma after spending 64 days in the kidnappers' den.
Although nobody in the school could tell why the pupils did not resume with their mates, it is not clear if they have changed school.
However, four other rescued pupils resumed and expressed confidence over the new security system in the college.
Those that resumed are Faruq Yusuf, Judah Agbaosi, Rahmon Isiaka and Jonah Peter, who are all in Senior Secondary School Three.
It was also observed that a security tower is still under construction contrary to government’s claim that it is ready.
Security agents were seen on ground, while the school fence has been raised.
Only 20 students had resumed in Junior Secondary School one out of expected 229, while 205 resumed in Junior Secondary School two and three out of expected 431.
However, the Permanent Secretary of the state Ministry of Education, Adeshina Odeyemi, said the kidnap incident belonged to the past and is not responsible for the low turnout.
