The Deputy governor of the state, who doubled as commissioner of Education, Nuhu Gidado, announced the closure of Sa’adu Zungur Model Primary and Secondary School in a statement his Special Assistant on Communication, Yakubu Adamu released on Monday.

Gidado in the statement attributed the students’ behaviours to eroding moral values in the society, adding that a committee had been set up to investigate the matter and come up with a detailed report before the school is reopened.

Vanguard reports that newsmen were told that in one of the marriages, a boy, who claimed to be the groom, paid N500 as dowry to “wed” a female student, while their classmates contributed money for snacks needed at the ceremony.

“We learned that the groom brought large sums of money to the bride’s friends for settlement after marriage had taken place,” the paper quoted a sources as saying.
