A Lagos teacher has been accused of brutalizing a student for ringing the bell, during school hours.
The SS2 student of Zumratul Islamiyyah Junior/Senior School in Yaba area of Lagos, identified as Ridwan Yunus was brutalized by the Lagos teacher, Mr Babatunde who teaches Social Studies.
This is coming after it was reported that a secondary school teacher, Sunday Adeshina, was jailed at Kirikiri prison in Lagos State after he reportedly flogged a female student until she started bleeding. Adeshina was said to have flogged a 14-year-old SS3 student identified as Onyinye Nwakaeme, on the head when she could not give a correct answer to questions he asked her during a class.
Onyinye, a student of Great Esteem Private Secondary School in Ijeshatedo area of Lagos state told newsmen;
“We were taking Economics class that day and I was busy copying note. I had just returned from my father’s burial. Being behind schedule, I used every available time to copy my notes because I had a lot to write.
“The teacher saw me and called me out with some people, claiming that we were making noise and asked us to explain what he had been teaching. I didn’t get the question right because I was really not paying attention to him. Out of anger, he started flogging me.
“He flogged me to the point that I was bleeding on my head and he didn’t stop. Even when the proprietor asked him to stop, he was fierce and wanted to flog me more.”
