As per reports received by Aynaijang News from a reliable source, hundreds

Police used tear gas and fired rounds of heavy gunshots to disperse the rioting students as many slumped while some sustained varying degrees of injury from the rampage.

The protests were reportedly triggered by an attempt from police officers to arrest one of the students, who was identified by the Taskforce team of the school as a cultist–an allegation some of the students call a “lie.”

“They say we’re ‘Marlian cultists’,” a senior student, who didn’t even know the name of the school principal, told FIRST REPORTS. “But it’s a lie, they wanted to carry the wrong person.”

The incident in the school took place after a mob of students reportedly attacked the police officers with stones and other weapons, and in the process severely wounded a Divisional Police Officer.

With some of the students tying red scarfs on their heads, they blocked the school gate, preventing the police van—which they have nicknamed ‘school bus’—from taking the student away.

They vandalised lots of school properties, shattering vehicles of members of staff as well as offices of the principal (Pastor David Udo) and his vice.

The rioting students also attacked one of the members of staff, working under the NPower scheme, wounding him severely in one eye, as fear grows he might not be able to see with it again.
Some of the students told AYNAIJANG NEWS that the teacher has been at the forefront of instiling good morals into the students.
The Government in the state, led by Mr Udom Emmanuel, says it has launched a full-scale investigation into the causes of the crises in the College which has become “a recurring decimal”.
The school has been shut down indefinitely, according to a statement signed by the Commissioner for Education, Professor Nse Essien.
All the students will bear the cost of all the damages caused by their action on resumption.
At least 34 students whose names were compiled through intelligent sources as being masterminds of the ugly incident have been placed on indefinite suspension.

An undisclosed number of students have been arrested as police investigation continue.
The Commissioner of Police in the State, CP Imohimi Edgal said the Police will no more tolerate the high level of indiscipline and youthful exuberance exhibited by the students.
