Nigerians on currently outraged over a recent act by the Ekiti state Task Force which visited a private school in the state.
The task force reportedly locked up a school in Ado-Ekiti with pupils still inside simply because the school authorities were yet to pay up their tax.
The incident was said to have taken place yesterday, but it is not yet clear if the school has been reopened as at the time of filing this report.
In a viral video, the schoolchildren could be seen inside the school compound worried over what to do after the enforcement team locked the gate.
A parent who went to pick up her kid could be heard lamenting over how inhumane the state government task force action was.
Watch the video:
Angered by the incident, Nigerians took to social media to express their displeasure.
