At least two persons were brutalised as gunmen reportedly invaded Community High School, Ijoun, in Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State on Monday.

It was learnt that students of the school allegedly hired the hoodlums to attack and send their teachers away from the school.

Weapons such as machetes and axes were said to be used on the persons identified as Messers Stephen Oyelekan and Kayode Olatunji, before fleeing.

The incident occurred barely one week after some students of Unity High School, Kajola, Ibooro, in the same local government also reportedly hired thugs to beat up their teachers.

A source told Punch that the hoodlums stormed the school premises with weapons and descended on the teachers, inflicting varying degrees of injury on them.

"The attackers invaded the school at about 10.45am on Monday and freely used weapons such as machetes and axes on Messers Stephen Oyelekan and Kayode Olatunji, before fleeing," he stated.

However, the incident was reported at the Eegua Police Station while the victims had been taken to hospital for treatment.

"The principals of Junior and Senior Secondary Schools, Mr. Sowunmi and Kayode Amusa respectively, were said to have informed the Adele of Ijoun Community, Chief Olaleye Emmanuel, and the head of the Amotekun in the community," a source disclosed.

The Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said he had heard about the incident, but not yet officially briefed.
