“Twitter NG i just lost my brother to School Teacher Brutality.
Mr Emmanuel(frame 1)is a sec school teacher at Elihans college, Ikorodu in Lagos
He beat up my brother Boluwatife Omelaja(frame 2) to death on 26th of November in the school premises because he couldn’t answer a math question he was asked correctly.
The school initially made us believe he slumped and died while he was trying to answer the question on the board, a boy who wasn’t ill or showed any sign of sickness before.”
Nigerians however took to social media to react to the shocking news.
See some reactions below;
“Most 9ja teachers are mentally Frustrated and suffering from disturbed childhood trauma”
“God, this is the reason why these days if teachers touch children, they can even sue the teacher, which is not supposed to be, when i was young my teachers beat me cus I committed an offense, but not beating someone to death, that is just crazy and absurd 💔”
“I understand the Muslim right but it will be a good thing of if people allow science to take over once there’s an unusual death and autopsy is done it will help …. Now that the boy is buried how will you find out the truth”
“Teachers shouldn’t flog students they can only give them punishment”
“Not just Mr Emma, the principal and the proprietess should be on the run too. They are accomplices too”
