5 suspected hoodlums invade private school, chase away staff students

Five men suspected hoodlums who stormed a private school Dove Prime International School Limited in Nasarawa State, have been dragged before a Mararaba Chief Magistrate’s Court in Nasarawa State.

The suspects including, Anthony Okoligwe, Johnson Idiok, Amina Hamza, Kabiru Haruna and Victor Giwa were arraigned for allegedly invading Dove Prime International School Limited, Orozo, Nasarawa State and obstructing learning activities.

Their offence bordered on criminal trespass, force, assault, theft, brigandage and mischief. The suspects however denied the allegations.

The counsel to the complainant Enoch Dodo, told the court that the defendants invaded the school premises on July 4.

“Without authorization nor consent of the complainant, the defendants went ahead and locked up various classrooms and exam halls.

“On July 5, the defendants returned with thugs, hoodlums with dangerous weapons harassed, assaulted, threatened the lives of the staff, chased away pupils, thereby obstructing exams and learning activities.

“Also, on July 14, the defendants forcefully and unlawfully entered the secondary section and took away a generating set and a car battery,” Dodo said.

He told the court that parents have withdrawn their children and wards as a result of the criminal activities from the defendants.

The  defendants counsel, Wale Bamigbaiye, however,  argued that the court lacks jurisdiction over the case as the parties and the act did not exist within the court’s jurisdiction.

The offences are said contravene Sections 97, 397, 348, 326, 307, 288 and 327 of the Penal Code.

The Presiding Judge, Patrick Epu adjourned the case until Aug. 16, for ruling.
