Eight teachers in public secondary schools in Ogun State died during the first term holiday, which began on December 18 and ended on Monday, with schools resuming across the state.
The Nation learnt that their pupils and colleagues were shocked and sad to discover that the affected teachers did not resume like others and upon inquiries, they were told that the teachers died during the holiday.
The teachers, until their death, were said to be members of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS), Ogun State chapter.
The chapter Chairman, Akeem Lasisi, confirmed the death of the teachers to our reporter.
He said what the union lost and suffered during the holiday had affected their psyche, adding: “We now discharge our duties amid fears and pains.” (Nation)
