According to Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), the police are now on the hunt for the suspect who is now at large.

The PPRO said; “The incident happened about 11:15a.m. during lunch break. The pupils were on the field playing. The suspect just emerged from the bush and hacked two of them to death and immediately he did it, he ran away.

“Those who know him (suspect) said he is a madman and also an indigene of that place. But we are not relying on that. We are on his trail; we want to get him arrested. It is only the medical expert that would confirm whether he is a mad person or not. Our ultimate aim is to get him arrested,” he added.
