Photos: Students, parents & teachers hold night vigil in school over alleged plans by Enugu govt to demolish their school

Parents, teachers and students of Spring of Life International School, Enugu have resorted to holding vigils in their school premises after the state government allegedly indicated plans to demolish their school which they termed an illegal structure.

According to reports, the state government had recently embarked on pulling down illegal structures in the state built without a town plan approval and had marked their school premises for demolition. Their school management immediately approached an Enugu state court and the court issued an injunction barring the state government from carry out the planned demolishing.

After students and school management saw tractors and bulldozers of the state government around their school premises, they have been keeping watch morning and night in hopes to stop of stopping any attempted demolition.

The students say other buildings on the same street where their school is situated, Golden Royal Hotel (most state govt function hold there), Blue island hotel and even a bare land just besides the school which is currently being fenced have been left out of the planned demolition.
