The Bayelsa State Government has threatened to arrest and prosecute illegal occupants of the completed State owned Bishop Dimieari Grammar School (BDGS) premises at Ovom in Yenagoa Local Government Area.
The threat by the State government followed the directive issued to the authorities of the BDGS to move to the site and resume studies
The Commissioner for Education, Deacon Markson Fefegha, who gave the warning at the weekend, said though the state government had issued vacation order to illegal occupants of the buildings within the school site, the state government will arrest and prosecute them.
Deacon Fefegha, however, called on the staff and students to resume for studies as directed by the government, saying “We would not hesitate to arrest and prosecute occupants of the original site of Bishop Dimeari Grammar School, Ovom in Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state, if they fail to comply with the government’s vacation order.”
The previous delays experienced in the movement of the school to its original site was because of the activities of illegal occupants. We hereby warn the trespassers to vacate the premises or incur the wrath of the law.”
