“It was 5:30 am when a neighbor came nocking on my door , SAATER! Saater!! Saater , I asked mama what happen? . she answered, come with me and see some thing.
I followed her to a house where hundreds of people were already standing . What has happened? , I was told two girls from the same mother were burnt to death.
How it stated.
Three girls from the same mother have been staying in the same room . they leave the village to school in makurdi.
The elderly one often leave the room in the night to his boy friend house . she always find it difficult to come back into to the room quietly as it always take several nocks and time for the younger ones to open the room for her. Some thing she is not at home with.
So yesterday, according to her, she locked the door outside with a padlock around 12 something am and head to his boy friend house with the aim of coming back early as usual.
Like I told you earlier , I was there around 5:47am with mama , the the two girls where dead lying covered in there room.
Fire whose source could not be determined had burn the mattress where the too other girls where sleeping . one of them lack oxygen and died instantly why the other tried to open the door but couldn’t as the door was locked outside.
A good neighbor who came quite early spoiled the door and found the other one dead why the other had little breath and was rushed to the hospital but it was too late already.
Her dead body were returned home immediately without delay and placed side by side to her late sister.
The lady returned from her boy friends house close to six O’Clock
and met hundreds of people in his house .
A man asked, where have you gone? , the lady replied what I did not hear but later went in to found her two sisters dead.
The boy friend came around and receive the beaten of his life , the girl whose age can not be more than 16 by my own assessment told the crowed not to beat the little guy.
The girls school mate visited and it was cry all over . what a tragedy.
The girls parents arrived later and the dead bodies have since been taken to the village for burial. it is really a mystery how the fire came in to the room.”
#EndSARS Protest: Sanwo-Olu Orders Closure Of Schools In Lagos
The Lagos State Government led by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered the closure of public and private schools indefinitely in the state.
The closure of schools in Lagos was announced in a press statement on Monday by the state’s Head of Public Affairs, Ministry of Education, Kayode Abayomi.
The statement which was titled, ‘Lagos directs students to stay at home’, quoted Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, the Commissioner for Education, as saying that the schools were shut down over “tension generated by the anti-SARS protests.”
This is coming at a time #EndSARS protests against police brutality and bad governance by Nigerian youths grounded academic activities in some schools in the state on Monday.
“A new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.”

He announced that the Paper I Computer Studies Practicals examination which was supposed to be taken on Monday, October 19 is now delayed till November 16, 2020.

FG, ASUU Meeting Over IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock
The meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday ended in a deadlock.
Although some agreements were reached at the meeting, the meeting is set to reconvene on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, by 3.00 pm after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for ASUU to report back on the decision of its NEC.
In a bid to end the strike, the federal government agreed to release N30billion for payment of arrears of earned academic allowance to the university lecturers.
The communiqué issued at the end of the meeting revealed that the release of N20 billion funds for revitalisation of public universities will be payable by the end of January 2021.
On the issue of Earned Academic Allowances(EAA), which had accumulated to N40 billion since November 2019, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) made a commitment to release N30 billion on or before November 6, 2020.
He said the remaining N10 billion would be spread equally over the two tranches to be paid in May 2021 and February 2022, respectively.
The communiqué also revealed that ASUU agreed to take the offer to its members for consideration and revert by Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
The issue of the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) almost stalled the meeting as the federal government asked that IPPIS be allowed to operate in the interim until the test run on UTAS is concluded.
But ASUU insisted on payment of outstanding salaries on the old GIFMIS platform before full implementation of UTAS.
