The young female students were subjected to virginity test.
The panel set up to investigate allegations of unlawful administration of virginity test on 10 students in Ogun State has submitted its report.
The students are of Ajuwon Senior High School, Ajuwon, Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
The state Ministry of Education had set up a five-man panel of enquiry to investigate the allegations and submit its report within two weeks.
In a statement issued on Tuesday in Abeokuta by its Press Officer, Kayode Oduyebo, the Health Ministry said the report was submitted to the Commissioner for Education, Segun Odubela, on Tuesday.
In the statement, the Chairman of the panel, Idowu Adeniji, said the committee obtained both oral and written evidences from community leaders in Ajuwon, including students and other members of the public.
According to Mr. Adeniji, the panel ensured that equal opportunities were given to individuals that appeared before it at the sitting.
He urged the commissioner to carefully study the recommendations in order to forestall future occurrence.
Receiving the report, which was in four volumes, Mr. Odubela thanked members of the panel for completing the assignment within the stipulated time frame.
He assured parents, students and other members of the public that were directly affected that justice would be served and that the final decision would be announced soon.
It would be recalled that the principal of the school, Olufunke Aladeojobi, on December 10, 2012, allegedly invited a nurse to conduct virginity test on the female students without the consent of their parents or guardians.
This caused uproar in the state, with aggrieved parents asking for sanctions on the principal.
