Sad Day As Corp Member Experience Ogume Cult Clash

NYSC corper named Olawale iterated that the story broadcasted wasn’t the exact way it happened. During a WhatsApp chat with Olawale, he explained more about how the clash began.

He said:

“I and my other colleagues serving in Ogume Grammar school, Ndokwa west local government, Delta State Nigeria were attacked by angry mobs and they stole all our properties and burnt many.

“We were lucky to be rescued from the mobs by two indigene friends that we usually watch football matches together. Thanks to them who made us escape through a bushy river of about 25 minutes journey to a good samaritan’s house called Mr. Anani who sheltered us for a while.

“This terrible incident happened as a result of the death of a female student. How it started was that a male student was fighting staff in the school premises. Members of the vigilante group arrested him and took him to the police station.

“As the vigilante group was returning to the school after the arrest, students in the school sighted them and became scared so they started to run helter-skelter. It was in the course of running that this girl and her friends ran into a river to hide but one of them drowned and died.

“Her dead body was taken to the school premises by an angry mob and they started attacking the staff and destroying school properties.

“They burnt down the ICT containing 45 computers with 24hr solar systems. The principal car was burnt down and she was attacked too. A staff motorcycle was burnt.

“Our properties were all looted. Even ordinary Maggi was not spared.”

DELTA State Government has announced the closure of Ogume Grammar School, Ogume in Ndokwa West Local Government Area of the state till further notice. The closure is a result of the activities of some miscreants/cults who set the school ablaze last month.

The State Commissioner for Secondary Education, Mrs. Rose Ezewu disclosed this in Asaba at a meeting with the leaders of Ogume community.
