FGC Ijanikin Principal Confirms Students’ Sexcapade, Denies Pregnancy Report 


The Principal of the Federal Government College, Ijanikin, Lagos, Tofunmi Akamo, has confirmed the report that some students of the school were found to have lodged at an hotel near the school and engaged in immoral activities.

Mrs Akamo, a lawyer, explained that the management of the college deserve commendation for its efforts towards addressing indiscipline among the students.
She said the unruly students were found out by the school and disciplinary action was taken against them appropriately.

Recall that Punch had earlier on Wednesday reported that some male and female students of the school had lodged in a hotel for sex romps before they were found out.

According to the newspaper, one of the students had been impregnated by her male classmate, and the development had led to the discovery by the school authorities.

But the school denied the report of any pregnancy, saying whoever may have given the information to the newspaper was “just being mischievous and malicious.”

Mrs Akamo, who spoke to an online medium via a telephone conversation said the school, under her watch, has been proactive on the matter of discipline and moral uprightness.

Besides, she said since her assumption of duty at the school in September 2020, she had suspended and sometimes dismissed some students found unworthy of being at the school.

She, however, blamed the parents for what she described as uncooperative attitudes, saying some parents of students found engaging in nightclubbing and homosexualism refused to even assist the school in disciplining the students.

“One even came to the school here and abused all of us, and was not ashamed of the child’s bad conduct. It is unfortunate,” she said.

According to the principal, 80 per cent of the narration in the earlier report is untrue, saying the incident happened during the recent sporting event involving federal government colleges and which was held at the Yaba College of Technology in Lagos.

Mrs Akamo, who is the chairman of the forum of principals of federal government colleges in the country, said: “It was towards the end of November when, on a Monday, my attention was called to the fact that on Sunday evening, when they had bed check, some girls were not in the hostels. And then the morning of Monday, they called their parents to find out if they were at home. And the parents said they were not at home. We then began investigations immediately.

“So, on Monday when we were trying to know what had happened since they were not at the hostel that night, one of their friends told us that they were in a hotel. They scaled the fence on the night of Sunday to go to a hotel and we were shocked to find them there. There were five who were caught in the hotel but during interrogation, we found out that there was another girl who also went with them on that Sunday but came back to the school on Monday.”

She said the disciplinary committee of the school met over the matter and suspended the students and reported the same to their parents.
