The teens were alleged to have gone through a series of counseling sessions before being allowed to return to class on Tuesday.
During a visit to the school, the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Abayomi Arigbagbu, stated that the kids will be subjected to manual labor as a kind of punishment in order to act as a deterrence to others.
Mrs. Abosede Ogunleye, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, advised students in the state to avoid actions that might endanger their future.
Ogunleye said: “The learners have been counselled and made to undergo some punishment and I want to believe they have changed for the better. So, I want to encourage you not to abuse, stigmatize or call them names, instead advise them and be their friends.”
