A level 17 teacher in Lagos State Tuesday died in an early morning car crash on her way to work. The teacher identified as Mrs Ikeji was teaching at Lagos State-owned Festac Girls Senior Secondary School until her death. One of the non-teaching staff in the school told The Guardian that the teacher was living in Agege and had to travel to Festac every day to teach. An official of District V under which Ikeji worked said there are currently many teachers who travel far distances to work every day. “In such cases, we cannot ask them to not move to their houses.”“In some case, we transfer teachers to places where they are needed.
