A student of Ozar secondary school, Asa in Ukwa West LGA of Abia State, who was sent home by one of her teachers, Mrs Njoku on Monday to cut her hair, returned with her mother and elder siblings to attack teachers and students .
The JSS 2 student, Precious Nwadike, had earlier been warned by same teacher two weeks ago to barb her hair but she did not heed to the warning.
Thus, on arrival to school on Monday, the student was asked to go home and barb her hair.
She left immediately, only to return two hours later with her mother and four of her siblings who marched straight to the staff room and commanded the teachers to come out.
The mother, Mrs Nwadike held the teacher, pulled her cloth and ordered the sons to cut her hair.
The intervention of another teacher, Mrs Osuagwu provoked the sons and one of them, Uche almost strangled her.
The intervention of students led to a free for all fight, which Mrs Nwadike and her children appeared to be fully prepared for.
A youth corp member serving in the school who pleaded anonymity had to alert the military personnel.
Their quick arrival at the school calmed the situation and doused the tension.
Mrs Nwadike and children were arrested and detained at the Obehie police station, in Asa.
The Principal of the school Mrs F.N Nwachukwu, took the wounded students and teachers to obehie Health Center for treatment.
