Mutah said that the Minister was represented by Mrs Abidemi Aremo, the Director Planning, Research and Statistics in the Ministry.

“Intensive medical attention is being administered and as soon as they are done, they will be enrolled into a remedial programme’’.

“For the 21 and three that were earlier released, I wish to inform us that their psycho-social counselling is still in progress and of course they have started remedial classes.

“They are being taught five subjects, which is designed with a view to getting them back to school come the next school session, which is in September this year.

“They will be settled in various schools and I am sure they will continue their education from there,’’ she said./NAN
