Bauchi State Government has ordered the closure of the ‘Sa’adu Zungur’ model primary and secondary school.
This followed discovery that some senior students conduct illegal marriages among themselves within the school.
Although male and female students study in separate classes in the school, attention of the management was drawn to such illegal marriages last week when an SS2 student (name withheld) organised an illegal wedding ceremony in classrooms.
The cheers and noise reportedly attracted teachers who were still within the school premises after learning hours.
The teachers rushed to the classroom and discovered that a wedding ceremony was taking place between the two students.
