Four out of the six abducted students of the Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, have resumed school.
The students were released by their abductors on July 23.
The students – Judah Agbaosi, Faruq Yusuf, Isoaka Ramon and Peter Jonah – were in high spirits when a team of the Lagos State Ministry of Education led by the permanent Secretary Mr. Adesina Odeyemi, visited the school on Tuesday.
Agbaosi, who spoke with journalists, said the students have put the ugly incident behind them and are happy to be back in school.
“I resumed yesterday (Monday) and feel very happy to be back. I can tell you that I’m very okay and know that nothing bad will happen again.”
He said the school management had put adequate security and other measures in place to boost their confidence as they settle down for learning.
The Nation reports that when asked if he would change school if given the opportunity, he said:
“I will not because I really like the standard here. Besides the school encourages student to have relationship with the teachers.”
The other two of the six pupils who were rescued after spending 64 days in kidnappers den failed to resume. Why they did not resume with other pupils is not known. It was not clear whether they had changed school.
