We didn’t invade Ekiti School of Health, says FFS


By Blessing OLAIFA, Abuja

The Federal Fire Service on Friday said that there was no iota of truth in reports that its officials invaded the School of Health Science and Technology, Ijero Ekiti.

It said reports that 15 students of the college collapsed while some were hospitalised as a result of forcible decontamination exercise carried out by the Agency were not true as well.

It noted that its conduct of decontamination exercise in the School in respect of COVID-19 followed all approved guidelines and protocols.

According to the Public Relations Officer of the Service,  Ugo Huan, the clarification has become necessary following series of misrepresentations on the event leading to the health conditions of the students.

Huan said :”Trouble started 15 minutes after the decontamination exercise started with reports that some students had collapsed due to the adverse effect of the decontamination exercise.

“Our men immediately stopped the decontamination, but by then the students came attacking our men almost lynching them, it took the intervention of the school security who took them to the registrar’s office and later were  whisked away by armed police officers of the Rapid Response Team.”
