Teacher flogs student for not doing his homework; student v#mits and d#es
Emmanuel Amidu, 12, a junior secondary school pupil of Simple Faith Schools, Agbara, Lagos State, has d#ex after being flœgged by his teacher for failing to do his homework.
It is reported that Amidu d#ed at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Surulere.
Akinola Amidu, his father said he flœgged by a teacher when he went to school on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
According to him, young Amidu started v#mitting shortly after the be@ting and was rushed to a hospital, where he eventually passed on.Akinola lamented what he alleged is an attempt by the school management to cover up the incident.
“I was at home that Thursday because I was on leave. I recall that Emmanuel asked me for money to buy a new exercise book and I gave him N500 to buy the book and give the remaining change to his sister.
“Later that day, I was called by the management of the school that Emmanuel was vomiting. Meanwhile, this was a boy who left home without any health issue. I had to go to the school and we moved him to a hospital. I later learnt that the whole thing started after their class teacher, Mr Steven, be@t the whole of his class for not completing their mathematics assignment.
Emmanuel was actually using my phone torchlight to do his assignment a day before, but I had to collect the phone from him and his sister because I needed to be in contact with the office. We had issues with our electricity at home.
It was at LUTH that I lost my son. Meanwhile, the management of the school quickly ran to the Morogbo Police Station at Agbara to report that my son d#ed from v#mitting.
How can somebody just d#e from v#mitting if nothing tr#ggers it? The management of the school is trying to protect the teacher.”
