“So far, all we have gathered is that there is this culture of final year students tearing their uniforms and some pouring water on themselves after their final exams.

“We are not leaving any stone unturned and anyone found culpable will face the wrath of the law,’’ the police spokesman said.

One Michale Matthew had shared on social media how some final year students sexually assaulted their female counterparts on their last day in school at Falomo, Ikoyi, Lagos.
