Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, in company of his wife, Deaconess Nkechi Ikpeazu, on Thursday paid a surprise visit to Methodist Girls Model Secondary School (formerly known as Ovim Girls Secondary School Isuikwuato).

News Express learnt that the visit was intended to enable the Governor to personally review the security and other infrastructure in the school that was recently invaded by a lone hoodlum on Friday night.

Ikpeazu, who went round the school with his wife, later addressed the students at the school hall. He assured them that the government will do everything possible to protect them and prevent future attempts to disrupt their peace and security.

The Governor directed security agencies to ensure the immediate arrest and prosecution of the attacker who scaled the school’s dormitory fence to attack the students and approved an electricity transformer to be provided to the school to ensure regular power supply.

He promised to ensure that the internal roads of the school are lit at night to enable easy identification of intruders. He also directed the Chairman of Isuikwuato Local Government Area, Chief Nnamdi Udueze, to immediately clear all the bushy area within the institution and put in place a sustainable plan for the regular clearing of overgrown grasses in the school.

Speaking while conducting the Governor round the school, the visibly elated Principal of the School, Ezinne Oluchi Ibenye, joined by the proprietor of the school, Rt Rev. Obadiah Agbai, thanked the Ikpeazu for personally visiting the school and also dispatching his aides before now to enquire about the school. He assured the Governor that no student of the institution was raped by the hoodlum whom she said took advantage of the heavy downpour of that day to invade the dormitory area.

Her words: “My dear Governor, I can assure you that no student of this school was raped as our brave students fought the hoodlum and raised alarm and we arrived promptly. Unfortunately, the hoodlum wounded some students with a rod but they have all been treated and discharged.”

Governor Ikpeazu directed that the Medical bill of the injured girls be forwarded to him for reimbursement and authorised the immediate extension of the fenced area of the dormitory to include the convenience building.

The Governor vowed to ensure that schools in the state are adequately protected and used the opportunity to applaud Abia School Children, their teachers and parents for raising the best students in Nigeria. He promised that his administration will continue to prioritise qualitative and affordable education to guarantee that the future of the state.

Governor Ikpeazu was accompanied on the visit by Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, Commissioner for Strategy, Chief Obinna Ekekwe, Commissioner for Sports, Chief Martin Okoji, member representing Isuikwuato State Constituency, Honorable Chukwudi John-Ogelle, the LGA Chairman and his aides.
