The incident was said to have caused a stir as teachers and students fled in different directions during the robbery operation resulting into pandemonium in the school.

The state police command was informed by some teachers who escaped from the scene.

The police spokesperson pointed out that “the bursar has been arrested and helping the police with investigation.”

He added that: “The was no robbery on the school, the robbers only traced the bursar and disposed him of the money.

“What we learnt was that the hoodlums traced him to the school after he had gone to withdraw a large sum of money without police protection. The money should be close to N3 million.

“He is with us, he is helping us with investigation. We will quiz him to know whether he knows more than he claims.”
