Ola said one of the students who died after her parents took her to a hospital for treatment showed signs of the strange ailment through jerking.

“There is a gas plant close to the school and the management of the school had long told the owner of the plant to remove it from the place for the sake of the health of the people in the area.”

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education, Mr Augustine Oghoro, said the state government was committed to ensuring that learning environment was safe for children and teachers.

He said, “The ministry has taken a holistic approach towards unravelling the circumstances that led to the shutting down of the school.”
