Infection hits Queen’s College, hundreds of pupils sent home

Hundreds of pupils from Queen’s College, Lagos, have been sent home to prevent the .spread of water-borne infection, The Nation learnt last night.

The Chairman of the school’s Parents/Teachers’ Association (PTA), Mr John Ofobike, confirmed the development.

But the principal, Mrs Oyinloye Yakubu could not be reached for comment.

In 2017, the school had a water-borne epidemic which caused the death of three pupils and led to its closure for months during which the old students association rehabilitated its facilities.

Ofobike said he could not tell the nature of the sickness but learnt from a parent whose ward had been treated at the hospital that the illness was caused by food and water bacterial infection.

According to him, he visited the school on Sunday and found out that hundreds of girls were being given exit to go home for treatment.

He, however, noted that the principal, whom he claimed did not want the issue to be publicized, refused to allow him see the register of sick pupils. (PMnews)
