The state government, through the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Youth and Social Development, identified the girls in the video to be pupils of a Lagos state school - Oreyo Senior Grammar School, Igbogbo, Ikorodu.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Tokunbo Wahab, confirming the development according to Vanguard, described it as heart-wrenching.
Wahab said the disturbing clip further heightens why the duty of looking after the child is not the responsibility of the school or government only, the role of parents is critical.
“...appropriate steps are been taken to address the issue with the aim of preventing future occurrence in the state.
“The appropriate ministry is already intervening. You see why the role of parents is so critical. We can’t leave everything to government and school. This is heart wrenching.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that FUTA had suspended bullies involved in the assault of a 100 level student.
In the video that had trended, the group led by a male and a female student were seen beating one 100 level female student identified simply as Bolu. The students were heard telling Bolu to kneel and when she refused they ganged up on her and started beating her.
The school released an official statement signed by the deputy director of corporate communications, Adegbenro Adebanjo. The statement revealed that the students have been suspended.
