The Lagos State Government has suspended five female pupils of the Oreyo Senior Grammar School, Igbogbo, Ikorodu.
Naija News reports that the students were caught in a video smoking “Shisha” while in school uniform.
Meanwhile, the video which trended on social media last week has received wide condemnation from concerned Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora, calling for sanction against the pupils and their parents.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Tokunbo Wahab, who confirmed the development disclosed that the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Youth and Social Development is handling the case.
He added that the state government has ordered their rehabilitation with immediate effect.
Wahab said: “Appropriate steps are been taken to address the issue with the aim of preventing future occurrence in the state.
“The appropriate ministry is already intervening. You see why the role of parents is so critical. We can’t leave everything to the government and school. This is heart-wrenching.”
