Education commissioner Folashade Adefisayo announced this when she visited the school on Wednesday morning.
Yesterday, a speeding truck rammed into some of the school’s students, killing two and injuring 12, according to the police. Some reports, citing eyewitnesses, put the death toll at 17.
Adefisayo said the government will, this afternoon, release an “explicit” statement containing an official death count and more details about what led to the tragic accident.
Reports claimed that the truck driver, who has since been arrested, was being chased by officers of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).
But the agency denied the claim, adding that its officers were called to the scene to save lives after the crash tragedy already happened.
