An activist, Mr Victor Ojei, who rushed to the scene of the incident, said hard drugs had caused a lot of damage to some secondary pupils in the state, pleading with the government to act fast. He wrote:
“Hard drugs now being consumed by secondary school students in Delta State.
“These kids now take all forms of hard drugs and get intoxicated to start fighting their teachers.
“The man in photo with injury that was later stitched at the federal medical centre Asaba, Delta State, was attacked by one of his student and got injured. .
“The state government needs to support/fund or facilitate public schools with funding to bring in Anti-Cult groups, Man o war, Police and Non Governmental Organizations. .
“Each time the principal calls for help to curb or contain these children who have gone wild due to hard drugs, they will have to pay minimum of N15,000 else no support will come. .
“The Governor of Delta State needs to know that in 5 to 10 years time, crime rate will increase and there will be no peace if the state government fails to follow my advise or solution.”
