The Lagos State Government has directed all students in public and private schools to stay at home, following the tension generated by the #EndSARS protests.
A statement issued on Monday by the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, emphasised that the safety of the pupils, parents and all staff working in schools is “paramount at this critical period.”
She advised parents to keep an eye on their wards and prevent them from being used as tools by those who might want to hijack the protests to unleash mayhem on the society.
The commissioner also encouraged schools to utilise other means of distance teaching and learning such as radio, television and online media similar to the practice during the closure occasioned by the COVID-19 lockdown.
She said that a new date for resumption of all classes will be announced in due course.
