Teacher Flogs 4-yr-old Pupil to Death for Being Stubborn

November 21, 2013

It’s tragic when things like this happen. Detectives in Ondo State have detained a primary school teacher, Alade Adebayo, for allegedly flogging to death a four-year-old female pupil Elizabeth Wanogha.
The deceased pupil was a student of a private primary school, Falaye Memorial Nursery and Primary School, located at Fanibi area in Akure metropolis.
The teacher, according to report, accused the deceased of being stubborn in the class. He was said to have beaten the girl to a state of coma.
Cries from other pupils in the class reportedly attracted other teachers who rushed to the scene where they found that the girl had fainted.
She was said to have been rushed to a private hospital and was admitted but reportedly died later.
The father of the deceased, Mr. Wanogha lodged a complaint at the Fanibi Police station, alleging that his daughter died as a result of the injuries sustained from the severe beating by her teacher.
Following the complaint, the teacher was arrested for interrogation.
The father of the deceased pupil insisted that the teacher should be prosecuted for murder.
Mr. Wanogho who lived at Adebowale street Fanibi vowed that the matter would be pursued to a logical conclusion to serve as deterrent to wicked teachers who vent their anger on innocent pupils put in their care.
He appealed to NGOs to take the matter up by ensuring that it was not swept under the carpet.
The proprietor of the school declined comment on the incident.
