King builds a school where everything is free for the students

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a Nigerian king had built a fine school where virtually everything is free for students.

Oba Adedokun Omoniyi Abolarin with his resources built a school for children of the poorest of the poor.

The school provides its students with free uniforms, hostel, food and laptops.

Students of Abolarin College in Oke-Ila, Orangun are also not required to pay any school fees, an uncommon act shown by the king who teaches in the institution.
