An SS2 student of Zumratul Islamiyah Junior / Senior School student in Yaba, Lagos, identified as Ridwan Yunus, was brutalized by his teacher, Mr Babatunde, who teaches social studies. Ridwan was brutally flogged by Mr Babatunde for ringing the bell during lesson hours.
You can tell where the teacher’s grudge is coming from right ? Anyway, this is not the first of its kind in Lagos. It has been reported that another teacher of the same school, Sunday Adeshina, was imprisoned in Kirikiri prison in Lagos State after a female student was reportedly flogged until she started bleeding.
Adeshina reportedly flogged a 14-year – old SS3 student named Onyinye Nwakaeme, a student at the Great Esteem Private Secondary School in Ijeshatedo, Lagos State. She in a report to news people said;
“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.”
