Three teachers of the Oyo State Basic School, Ogbomoso, have been suspended by the Oyo State Government for suspected sexual harassment.

Rahman Abdu-Raheem, the Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, made the announcement in Ibadan on Friday.

He didn’t say who the teachers were.

Mrs. Adebiyi Racheal, the Principal of Oyo State Training School for the Blind, and Mrs. Akanbi Oluwaseun, the Headteacher of Oyo State Basic School, Ogbomoso, have both been transferred.

The suspension and transfer, according to Abdu-Raheem, were the Oyo State Government’s response to a recent viral video of unrest at the school.

He claimed that taking early action will let a four-man investigating committee conduct free and impartial inquiries.
