Saboba: Headteacher Invited By Police After Students He Sent To His Farm Drowned


The Saboba District Police Command has invited the Headmaster of the St. Charles Junior High School, Emmanuel Changer, after 10 of his students drowned on Friday when a canoe they were travelling on capsized.

In an interview with Citi News, the Saboba District Police Commander, ASP Shine Zoiku, said the invitation is to furnish the command with more details.

“We are now telling him to come down for the necessary formalities,” ASP Zoiku said.

The Headmaster is reported to have sent about 30 of his students to his farm, and it was on their return when the accident happened.

A number of them swam to safety.
