At least 12 students of the Federal Government College, janiki, Lagos State, have been caught engaging in sex romps in hotels in the community.
The male and female students who reportedly jumped the school’s fence and stayed out of school for days are reportedly between the ages of 14 and 17.
Sources told Newsmen that for three sessions, including the just concluded first term, some of the students, numbering about seven males and five females, had been leaving the school unnoticed. It was also alleged that they engaged in threesomes and used drugs like codeine, molly, among others.
Their escapades were brought to the school’s notice after one of the male students impregnated a female colleague.
A source told Newsmen that “there is a possibility that some staff are also involved in the whole atrocities because how will a secondary school student leave the school environment for days without anyone noticing? Some of the staff are benefiting from it somehow.
Some parents who confirmed the development, accused the school of negligence and allegedly plotting to cover up the scandal.
A parent identified simply as Alex said; “This is happening because of the negligence of the principal and the housemasters and mistress. If something like that goes hidden, my children are in that school; they can become victims.
Another parent, Johnson Smith said; “The management needs to intensify efforts at cleansing the school because these bad eggs will corrupt our children. Something urgent needs to be done in ensuring that discipline is restored.”
Chairman of the Parent-Teacher Association of the school, Olusola Tokede, who also confirmed the incident, refuted claims that the school was trying to cover up the incident.
Tokede said the students were caught by the school management at hotels on two different occasions after noticing their absence.
He added that asides expelling and suspending some of the students involved, the school has also engaged the service ot local security guards to ensure the environment was being monitored.
