The Management of the Lagos State University of Science and Technology (LASUSTECH) has closed the University’s Staff School.
This is as a consequence of the death of a student, Abdulrahaman Dauda, of the Staff School.
It would be recalled that a video had earlier surfaced on social media showing the mother of the deceased student protesting to get justice.
The student was said to have been chased into a moving car by a teacher.
Thereafter, the Staff School management in a statement last week, said the case was taken to court on October 31 after a thorough investigation, and that three suspected staff members were remanded in prison over the case as the court process is ongoing.
Meanwhile, the University Management, in a memo on Friday ordered the closure of the Staff School.
The memo titled, ‘Notice of Closure of Lagos State University of Science and Technology International Secondary School (LISS)’, read: “In view of the unfortunate incident that recently occurred at Lagos State University of Science and Technology International Secondary School (LISS) which claimed the life of a student, the Management of Lagos State University of Science and Technology wishes to inform the general public that the school has been closed forthwith.
“During this period, students will be engaged with on-line learning. The period of closure will be used to restructure and reposition the school.”
