Ibuje Secondary School in Apac District has temporarily been closed following a violent student’s strike. Students rampaged on Tuesday accusing the school administration of confiscating their property unfairly.  

  The strike came a day after management conducted an impromptu inspection in the student’s dormitories and confiscated unauthorized items including mobile phones, radio sets, solar systems and 12 bags of casual wear.  

  The move angered students prompting them to engage in a sit down. They also refused to eat lunch and supper. They rampaged on Tuesday destroying school property. They also smashed tube lights in the boy's dormitories.       The school convened a crisis meeting and resolved to temporarily close the school pending the decision of the board of governors. They also sent home more than 400 students and apprehended 8 others believed to have led the strike.

  The Board Chairperson, Nickson Adupa, says he students were sent home to avoid more chaos that would cause more destruction the students were promising. He said at least 30 ringleaders of the strike have been identified, adding the school board will decide their fate on Friday.      According to Adupa, all students will be required to report back with their parents on a date to be communicated.  The arrested students have been released on police bond, according to the Headmaster, Bernard Opio.
