Oyo Commissioner Reacts To Two Students ‘Turning To Yams

There is no iota of truth in the report that two students of Bashorun High School, Ibadan, were on Friday turned to tubers of yam by a suspected ritualist.

The Oyo State Commissioner for Education, Abiodun Abdulramah, made this clarification, while addressing students, parents and guardians of the school when he visited the school.

The commissioner had visited the school on Friday afternoon, while on a fact-finding mission, following a report on social media that such incident happened in the school.

It was reported that the suspect was caught by a local security guard around Bode Wasinmi-Bashorun axis, at a location closed to the school.
