The House resolved to investigate the matter following a motion to that effect raised by Hon. Adefunmilayo Tejuoso.
While contributing to the debate, Chairman House Committee on Education, Hon. Lanre Ogunyemi stated that though the incident happened over a month ago, the case should be attended to because the school in question is situated in Lagos and “we pride ourselves in defending the defenseless.”
The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa concluded that the House Committee on Education should look into the issue and get back to the Housenext Monday.
Meanwhile, the House has called on the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni to urgently restore peace and security to the people of Ijede in Ikorodu.
Hon. Nurudeen Solaja- Saka, who raised the issue under Matter of Urgent Public Importance, expressed worry over the present cult clashes that had halted business activities in the area and caused great sense of fear to the residents.
Hon. Solaja- Saka explained that all sorts of resolving measures have been employed by the royal chiefs of the neighbourhood and all have proved abortive as the waring cult groups have refused to desist from clashing.
Hon. Sanai Agunbiade, who contributed, expressed with dismay that the Federal Government needs to curb the “infantile gangsterism”, which has killed a lot of people.
He said the unfortunate development was a subvention of our value system, and a decadence in the society.
He added that the Law on Cultism visited by the 7TH Assembly should be re-examined with a view to getting an assent from the Governor for it to become law.
