Ten students of Ugborikoko Secondary School in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State have been hospitalized after men of the Nigeria Police Force, allegedly shot teargas into the school in a bid to disperse some hoodlums around the school premises.

Some of the students were said to be in critical condition while some have been resuscitated by medical personnel simply identified as Dr. Efemena.
