Following the video that went viral of a little girl SUCCESS ADEGOR who was driven from school over late payment of fees.
After investigation it was found out that Success is a student of Okotie Eboh primary school in Sapele Delta state.
It was also found out that her head teacher VERA IBIGWE who has been suspended took illegal fees.
Commissioner of Education Delta state Barr cheiedu ebeh who visited the school said she was suspended due to her inability to defend the collection of illegal fees.He said
There is right to fair hearing. So, what will happen is that a detailed investigation would be set up to look into the issue in details.
Like I did say, I conducted a preliminary investigation but in the interim we have to suspend her (Mrs Igbigwe) as the head teacher of this school pending the outcome of the investigation.
That suspension will take effect as from today (Monday). Obviously, there are contradictions in her story because everybody was there when they talked about school fees.
It was obvious that Success was sent home because of her inability or her parents to pay the supposed fees which is not in any way part of the 2018/2019 levies.
The commissioner maintained that Education for primary and secondary school in Delta state is free and anyone who tries to violates the rule will be punished.
