Nigeria-Tension enveloped some parts of Abeokuta, Ogun State yesterday, when secondary school students from two public schools clashed after two of their colleagues reportedly died during a gambling competition.
The students from the Baptist Boys High School and Ilugun High School in Elega engaged one another in a violent clash which lasted for several hours.
According to Daily Trust , Students of the two schools had last week played in a gamble which favoured the BBHS students.
It was further gathered that the gambling degenerated into a conflict, wherein two BBHS students were allegedly stabbed to death.
Miffed by the development, the students of BBHS on Monday invaded the Ilugun High School with various dangerous weapons, including guns, cutlasses, broken bottles and assorted charms to avenge the death of their colleagues allegedly stabbed to death in the previous week.
The incidents paralysed commercial activities and vehicular movements in some parts of the state capital.
Shop owners, who had earlier opened for businesses, also hurriedly closed down and scampered for safety, while vehicles and commuters also deserted the area for fear of being affected by the incident
