19-Month-Old Flogged To Death By School Teacher In Delta State

A toddler identified as Obinna Adeze has died after a teacher, one Emeka Joshua Nwogbo, gave him 31 strokes of the cane.

The suspect, it was learnt, teaches in a school owned by his mother.

Mr. Ebenezer Omejalile, Chief Operating Officer of Advocates for Children and Vulnerable People’s Network, a human rights group, said the baby who was a pupil of Arise and Shine Nursery and Primary School, Asaba, Delta State, was flogged for playing with water and getting himself wet.

The toddler was tied hand and foot by the school owner and her son before flogging him into a coma, Omejalile said, quoting the toddler’s mother.

Omejalile called on the Ministry of Education to properly evaluate and monitor the activities of school owners.

Police spokesman Edafe Bright confirmed the arrest of the suspect, dismissing reports on social media that the suspect had been released from police custody.
