The information available to us further reads, “This is the case as it is known to us. The students did not die on campus. Neither did any of them collapse in the school. We will continue to update you on any further development. Thank you all. Let’s continue to pray for our students and advise the ones we have access to. They are very nonchalant about all that is happening.”
The school authority is therefore asking the general public to ignore all news circulating in the media that, they have lost two of their final year students.
