Some parents have temporarily withdrawn their children from Queen’s College, Yaba, Lagos, over a breakout of an unspecified infection.
According to some parents on Monday, no fewer than 700 pupils had taken permission to go home on health grounds.
It was reported that the school’s sickbay was overcrowded with pupils, as many were also laid on benches to create extensions.
It was gathered that parents and guardians were called upon to come and pick their wards as the situation worsened.
This comes just two years after three pupils of Queen’s College, Yaba, Lagos, died from water-borne infections.
A parent, who pleaded anonymity said on Monday she has since withdrawn her child from the school.
She confided that when the PTA chairman visited the sickbay and asked to see the register of affected students, his demand was turned down.
