Gang War: Ewet Technical College Shut Down, DPO Injured, 34 Students Suspended by Nobody: 10:11pm On Feb 21
Akwa Ibom government has shut down a secondary school in Uyo metropolis over a cult war that resulted in critical injuries to a divisional police officer in one of the divisions in Uyo, as well as many teachers and students.

The school in question is Government Technical College, Ewet, located along Nwaniba Road, about a kilometre away from Ibom Plaza, the centre of Uyo metropolis, where students went on rampage on Wednesday resorting to wanton destruction of school property while police and teachers sustained various degrees of injuries.

Daily Sun gathered that trouble started when a teacher called the police arrest two students who were on the police wanted list for their involvement in street fighting a week ago week.

It was gathered that when the police arrived the school compound, some students locked the gate and barricaded the main entrance chanting war songs and engaged the police in a fight.



Following the fracas, the state government through its commissioner for education, Prof. Nse Essien Uyo on yesterday, announced the indefinite closure of the school citing the unruly behaviour of the students who destroyed school property and caused injuries to police officers, including a DPO who went to quell the riot, and staff of the college.

“Government Technical College, Ewet in Uyo metropolis is hereby shut indefinitely and all the students are advised to vacate the school premises with immediate effect. The staff of the college are however, advised to continue to report for duty,” Essien said.

He said that 34 students of the college, whose names were compiled through intelligence sources as being masterminds of the incident have been placed on indefinite suspension and would not return to the school, even when the school reopens.

Essien said that students would bear the cost of damages done on the school property on resumption.

“As I speak, the DPO is in a critical condition in the hospital as a result of injuries sustained in an effort to quell the students unrest.

“A member of staff of the college is under surgical operation on his left eye, while another one has also been seriously injured. Several other members of staff and members the general public have also sustained varying degrees of injuries.

“And several windscreens of vehicles have also been smashed as a result of the street fighting which has almost become a trademark of the college.

“As a responsible government, we cannot sit down, fold our hands and watch, how our schools which are suppose to be citadel of learning is being turn into a den of hooligans,” he said.

He warned cult groups to stay off schools in the state as government would no longer tolerate such infringements.

He added that patrons and sponsors of cult groups in the schools would be unraveled and dealt with accordingly in the course of police investigation.

Cultists in Secondary School are mostly little kids. They can still be disciplined and molded. Round them up, throw the overly wayward ones out by expulsion, discipline the others with a future, thoroughly. Then call a pivotal Parents Teachers meeting and lay out the way forward with the active participation of the parents.

Our leaders of tomorrow.. No hope for Nigeria.

Akwaibom and calabar used to be one of the most peaceful state in Nigeria till cultism entered there with full force.

The problem with our youths is not bad government but cultism.Minimize cultism and see Nigeria flourish.

What is cultism? It is the system or practice of a cult. A Cult is a group of people whose membership, initiation process and activities are done in secret with their activities having negative effects on both members and non members.

Students in both secondary and tertiary institutions are the main members of this group. Their activities are done at odd places which includes rivers, valleys, cemetery, bushes, e. t. c and at odd times.

Their activities include drinking of blood for new members, theft, rape, robbery and some other social vices. People join cultism for academic excellence, to be respected, to feel belonged, e.t.c.

But guess what? Most of these cultists drop out of school, never graduate or graduate with poor grades or even end up being killed by rivalry cults or by the police force.

Wasted generation, Generations of snakes and vipers.

Cultism is Nigerias biggest unforeseen problem.

The bastards complain of bad government but during election they collect money from bad clueless candidates that won't perform and rig dem in only for dem to lavish the money and return to the street to constitute nuisance. angry

The problem with Nigeria is dat there is no consequence for actions committed... How can you attack an officer on uniform?? How do you injure ur teacher on the eye to the extent that surgery is required
To the teacher dat invited police to school premises to arrest teenagers should also go on suspension, cuz the right thing to do is to invite the parents/ guidance first

the North is plagued with religious wars, large armed kidnapping bandits, Boko haram insurgency, foolani herdsmen killers, violent Shia militia groups, underage marriage, Child Abuse, codein and tramadol addicts, poverty and sicknesses like laser fever and above all Islamic terrorists.

There is a future of Nigeria. I believe most definitely that there is a future for Nigeria. Parents should train the "future adults" well done. They should never ever spare the rod, but with caution, though. The youngsters of today must be WELL GROOMED, so that the tomorrow of Nigeria will be better.

Like seriously? This happening in a secondary school? I had to read and reread over and over again.

When their counterparts in other parts of the world are busy creating inventions to solves worlds problems andake technology easier for u and I and these ones are busy joining one useless cult group which adds no value to one other than rivalry, gang war, rape, destruction of lives and property, etc.

The Nigerian Educational system needs upgrading.
