Six students of Government Day Secondary School Salihu Dogo in Jalingo, Taraba state have been expelled by the school management after they staged a protest over the lack of basic learning materials in their school.
The students were said to have staged the protest in front of the school principal’s office last week Wednesday, accusing the school management of corruption.
In a viral video shared online, one of the students could be heard saying that they do not have a laboratory for science classes and that the teachers never conduct practical tests for them.
