Chairman, Akwa Ibom State Secondary Education Board (SSEB), Dr. Ekaette Ebong Okon has announced the immediate closure of Uyo High School.
This decision comes after some cultists ordered the school principal to reinstate their suspended members within 24 hours or face the music.
Fetish items like fresh pepper, palm oil drops, peeled cooked egg, palm fronds, red cloth, N10 note, among other items, were yesterday seen at the entrance to Mr. Michael Iwok’s office.
Similar items and several inscriptions were also seen at the entrance to Senior Secondary 3 classes.
It was gathered that trouble started when some students suspected to be cultists were recently suspended. And some Senior Secondary School students who could not meet up with the school requirements to be promoted to the next class.
Investigations reveal that on several occasions these two sets of students are responsible for the mayhem in the school.
