July 20, 2016 – Hausa Youths Attack School In Orile Agege Lagos, Beat Up Principal & Teacher During Valedictory Service

Panic broke out at the Lagooz School on Omotoye Estate in the Orile Agege area of Lagos State after some hoodlums invaded the school premises.

We learnt that some Hausa teenagers, numbering about 100, stormed the school with machetes and other weapons.

They were said to have attacked the school’s principal and a teacher, identified as Uncle John, during a free-for-all which lasted for about two hours.

Our correspondent was told that the rampaging youths, aside damaging some property of the school, allegedly made away with N1.5m.

Policemen from the Elere divison, operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad and some members of the Oodua People’s Congress, were said to have repelled the attack as residents fled the area.

Our correspondent was told that seven of the hoodlums were arrested, while others escaped after SARS operatives opened fire on them.

A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said trouble started when the school finished its valedictory service party on Saturday, but the teenagers refused to leave the school premises.

He said, “They were actually relatives of some of the school-leavers. The valedictory service party ended around 5pm, but they refused to leave. A teacher, Uncle John, tried to force them out. One of them abused the teacher and ran away.

“The teacher, who was embarrassed by the abuse, held one of the Hausa teenagers. There was a struggle between them. As the teacher hit the man, he also fought back and held the teacher by the neck, almost strangulating him.

“The principal, who wanted to settle the fight, was held by the tie by one of the intruders and beaten up. The principal’s brother, who wanted to rescue him, was given a fist blow in the eye.”

The teenagers reportedly damaged about four dozen of the chairs used for the party. Three of them were later apprehended by the school.

Those apprehended were reportedly held hostage in a classroom, while the others wreaked havoc on the school premises.

A source told Metro that the apprehended teenagers, however, mobilised more gang members into the community on the telephone.

He said, “Those boys had their phones and they started calling their friends, who trooped into the school with cutlasses and weapons.

“Policemen at the school’s gate prevented them from gaining entrance as they shot into the air. The hoodlums, however, grew in number, which overwhelmed the security agents.

“Despite the gunshots, the teenagers refused to go. In fact, while some of them knelt, others prostrated and were begging the police to shoot at them. They were saying, ‘Please shoot us; we want to die’.”

It was gathered that some OPC members later came out with weapons and engaged the hoodlums before SARS operatives came out in mass to chase away the teenagers.

They also seized motorcycles and weapons from them.

We learnt that prominent Hausa leaders had visited the school to make peace with the management.

  1. As I woke up this morning, and switched on my set, I was hoping to read about some good cheering news not this islamic hopeless holigans & hoodlums invading a peaceful school.

    But for crying out loud what is really wrong with all these possessed apprentice islamic demons these few days especially in ABJ?
    AND WHY is that fulani herdsman in Aso Rock playing mute over this nuisance caused by his brothers?
    A M A N D A….! What have you got to say to this?

    I take a stroll…

    • Do you care to investigate properly before you throw blame game ?

      Besides what’s islam has to do with this

  2. Our forces have done very well in bringing calm and order to the school premises and to the area at large. Not to be overlooked is also the action of the OPC too. Incidents like this are inevitable in the society but ability of our forces to quickly respond and restore calm and order is what actually count. I think the SERIKI in that region has to call this hausa youths to order and warn them seriously for their senseless actions. This is lagos they should get it clear!

  3. Mchew, I don’t like this type of news. When will these young Hausa boys stop behaving like cows? Their wahala too much.

  4. Next time finish them with guns, that is not their state, when other tribes go to their state they repect and obey their way, they dont do troble atall, why must they go to others tribes states make troblem and walk away free, kill, destroy, and steal.pls we are not 1 naija, let everybody cut their side and declear Independent country, free from killer ,love of human blood,invaders take over tribes,why, they dont want peace and peace will not come their way in their states over their in north.

  5. D Hunter, do not worry your self too much. you have said it all.
    their president will never comment as far as their interest is not attacked. See with the swift he wanted to import grasses from Brazil. If I have my way those should be sent to the space.

  6. Drastic action should be taken against this group of teenager before it becomes another terrorist group

  7. @ D Hunter, u said it all. I reserve my comment! I just lack words for this Islamic blood tasty cowards. They are even lucky that the policemen are gentle n controlled their guns. Dozens of them would have gone to c their leader d devil in hell by now. Time will come when we shall fight back endlessly..

    #LGO#

  8. What I see here are armed robbers portraying themselves as youths. Bcos some of their family in different parts of d country are causing trouble and nothing is done to them now this ones av come in disguise of youths to steal.
    PMB we need reaction from u to stop dis new set of bokoharams in its prime before they grow wings to fly.
    I hope d hausa leaders came along with d 1.5M that was stolen and some money for damages and health care for those that were injured.
    Thank God no student was reported to be harmed.
    Kudos to the quick response of d officers and OPC members.
