Lagos State government has ordered the closure of all schools in the state over the ongoing #ENDSARS protests across the country.
The state’s Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, issued the directive in a statement on Monday evening.
The statement read: “The Lagos State government has directed all pupils/students in public and private schools to stay at home following the tension generated by the anti-SARS protests.
“A new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.
“The safety of the pupils/students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period.”
“The commissioner, however, advised parents to keep an eye on their wards and not allow them to be used as willing tools in the hands of those who might want to hijack the protests to unleash mayhem on the society.
“She also encouraged schools to utilise other means of distance teaching and learning i.e. radio, television, and online media as they have been doing during and post COVID-19 lockdown.”
