The school was consequently shut down to stem the violence which allegedly began when a school official tried to stop a Muslim student from praying in the school – the institution is a Christian school.

No fewer than four cars and many other school properties were vandalised in the mayhem.

Caleb’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ayo Olukoju announced today the temporary shutdown of the school which he said will re-open on June 2nd.

Prof. Olukoju said: “We have rules and regulations in the school and all the students agreed to abide by them.

These rules are in the student handout. Before now, we have been applying appropriate sanctions against students who default in any of these rules.
“We wanted to enforce one of such sanctions on Wednesday before this crisis escalated.”

He however debunked the insinuations that the violence was related to religion. “Please, the crisis has nothing to do with religion. It has nothing to do with being a Christian or a Muslim,” he assured.
