Police say the students were overloaded in the busses with no social distancing and others without masks. The buses were impounded and taken to the police station. The teachers and students were sternly warned by the officers and teachers tasked with ensuring that the students arrived home safely.
The drivers were put in police custody and shall be arraigned in court on Monday. The students were released and strictly cautioned against breaking the laid down rules.
Police have since warned school administrators against flouting covid-19 containment guidelines even as they celebrate their victory across the country. "Anyone found will be arrested regardless of their position or status," reiterated one officer.
