“The Lagos State Government has directed all pupils/students in public and private schools to stay at home following the tension generated by the anti-SARS protests.

A new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.

The safety of the pupils/students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period”.
