Adefisayo, said “the safety of the students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period.”

She implored parents to monitor their children and not allow them to be used as willing tools in the hands of those who might want to hijack the #EndSARS protests to unleash mayhem society.

The commissioner also enjoined schools to utilize other means of distance teaching and learning such as radio, television and online media as they have been doing during and post the recent COVID-19 lockdown.

She added that resumption date would be communicated later.
