An outbreak of a strange disease at Government Science Secondary School, Kurfi has reportedly killed about 8 students.
According to a Daily Trust reporter, the authorities of the boarding school closed down the school over the weekend and sent students back home.
The closure however did not go down well with the state Assembly.

To this end, the assembly has directed it’s committee on Education and Health to thoroughly investigate the matter.
They are to report back as soon as possible.
