Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board has begun moves to shut a brothel beside the Ansar Ud Deen Primary School at Irona area in Ado-Ekiti.



The SUBEB Chairman, Prof. Modupe Adelabu, said at a press conference in Ado-Ekiti, on Wednesday, that the board was worried that the proximity of the brothel would have a negative effect on the upbringing of the pupils.

Adelabu said the brothel would be closed because the school was already in existence before its owner brought his business there.

Adelabu explained that the board had met with the commissioner of police in the state on the matter and was seeking legal advice to know the right way to ensure the closure of the brothel.

She said, "Schools should be far away from markets, brothels and other dangers. We are worried about the proximity of a brothel to our school. We met with the commissioner of police on this matter. We don’t want to go against the law but the brothel must go.

"These prostitutes go about the premises naked and this is not good for our children. It is unhealthy for pupils who come to school to see used condoms all around the premises."

Adelabu said SUBEB had embarked on sensitisation programmes to increase the number of pupils enrolled in schools.

She emphasised that the state government was doing everything to increase the school population from 155,296 pupils’ enrolment in 796 primary schools in the state to over 200,000.

According to her, the SUBEB is intensifying efforts to attract more pupils to the school by building more classrooms, building toilets facilities and painting structures already in existence.

She added that the board had also introduced the use of academic gowns for the graduation ceremony of primary school pupils, saying that was one of the attractions to private schools.
