‘False report of Hausa community attacking Lagooz School dangerous’
The proprietor of Lagooz Schools, Agege, Lagos, Chief Yomi Otubela, has refuted a news report alleging that his school was attacked by an irate mob from the Hausa community in Agege.
Otubela and representatives of the Hausa community in Agege maintained at a joint news conference that the media report of the clash between his school and the Hausa community was malicious and capable of igniting tribal war. The proprietor said there was actually a minor scuffle between two well-wishers who had come to felicitate with some of the students at an event organised by the school.
“For record purposes, teenagers never attacked Lagooz Schools and no property was damaged and the principal of the school was not beaten as reported. No money got missing,” Otubela said, adding that the Hausa community had been accommodating and peace-loving.
Speaking also, the Magaji Hausa community in Agege, Alhaji Abubakar Zango, said that for more than a hundred years that the Hausa community had been in Agege, it had never been caught in a crisis with its neighbours, and that report of the community attacking the Lagooz Schools was entirely false.
