The Lagos State Government has closed Bab Fafunwa Millennium School, Ojodu, formerly Ojodu Grammar School until January 2022.

Commissioner for Education, Folashade Adefisayo, made the announcement when she visited the school on Wednesday morning.

This is following reports of a speeding truck that crashed into some of the school’s students, killing two and injuring 12, according to the police.

Some reports, citing eyewitnesses, however, put the death toll at 17.

Adefisayo said the government will release an “explicit” statement later in the day containing an official death count and more details about what led to the tragic accident.

Reports stated that the truck driver, who has since been arrested, was being chased by officers of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and VIO.

But the agency has since denied the claim, adding that its officers were called to the scene to save lives after the crash tragedy already happened.
