Outrage As Teacher Allegedly Flogs Pupil To Death in Lagos

Published

on

At Oko Afo, Lagos’ Araromi Ilogbo Secondary School, students burst into chaos over the death of a colleague who was allegedly flogged to death by a teacher.

The event, which was reported to have happened on Thursday, had the teacher, Oluwale, allegedly flogging the dead, David Babadipo.

The 16-year-old, who had been sick for a few days, was reportedly flogged and then taken to a hospital where it was determined he was dead.

Numerous students were seen running erratically both inside and outside the school’s premises in a video that our correspondent saw on Friday.

A background voice described how the dead student wanted to go shopping when he was supposedly flogged by a teacher, which ultimately caused his death.

Mama Sassy D, a social media user, commented on the video, saying, “This is my neighborhood.” They’ve already begun to riot. That teacher might not make it through this phase.

Esther Wusu, a Facebook user, disputed the assertion that the student was fatally electrocuted, pointing out that the teacher’s name was really the vice principal of the school.

“Mr. Oluwale is a vice principal, first and foremost, and he didn’t even punish him for not paying attention in class—he doesn’t teach.

“That child’s parent chose not to take him to the hospital despite the fact that he has been sick since Tuesday,” After the break, yesterday afternoon, it got worse, so they summoned his parents to come get him up,” the writer wrote.

In the meantime, a different Facebook user named Bangose Jide said, “At Araromi-Ilogbo Senior Secondary School, Oko-Afo, a teacher beat (sic) David Babadipo, a 16-year-old, to death.”

“Mr. Olawale, a vice principal, is the instructor. The Morogbo Police Station on the Badagry Expressway in Lagos State has been notified of the crime. The native place of David Babadipo was Ipoti, Ekiti State.

As of the time this story was filed, Benjamin Hundeyin, the public relations officer for the state police, had not responded to a text message asking whether the case had been reported at the station.

Calls to the contact number did not go through, and our correspondent’s text message to the school did not receive a response, thus attempts to get the school to comment on the issue were also unsuccessful.
