Academic activities have been brought to a halt at Ohoror Secondary School, Ohoror in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, as staff and students were forced to flee the school following the attack on the school by suspected herdsmen.

It would be recalled that three persons were reportedly shot last week by herdsmen, who invaded the school and took some students hostage.

Addressing newsmen when he visited the school, the state Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare, said: “The school is not in session because herdsmen have chased the teachers and students away after the horrible event that occurred last week when they came and abducted three students.

“The community rose and pursued the herdsmen into the forest and were able to rescue the children while three of our boys were shot and the following day, the herdsmen attacked again.
