Six secondary school students in Taraba expelled for staging protest over lack of laboratory and other basic amenities in their school

Following a demonstration organized by students against the administration of the school over alleged corruption exactly one week ago, six students of Government Day Secondary School Salihu Dogo in Jalingo, Taraba state, have been summarily expelled.

According to reports, the demonstration took place last Wednesday in front of the school principal’s office.

One of the students was seen complaining in a widely shared video that their science lessons lacked a lab and that their lecturers never gave them practical exams.

”Science class we don’t even have a lab. Science class we have never taken practical .

See Biology, Physics, Chemistry, no lab. No seat. You will be standing. How would you even listen to the lectures that they are teaching. You will not even understand even one thing.”

The school is said to have a population of about 1,000 students. Their school fees per term is 4,800 out of which 500 is furniture fee, another 500 is feeding fee

The state government is yet to comment on this development.
