Following the viral report that a 12-year-old student of Dowen College in Nigeria, Sylvester Oromoni, died from complications of assault, another news has been reported of a pupil-teacher in Nigeria who has allegedly brutalised a toddler to the verge of almost making her lose her sight.
In the case of the Dowen College student, some seniors of the school handed Sylvester some beatings after he refused to join a secret cult they intended to initiate him into.
But in the case of the 2-year-old pupil of Day Spring Royal Academy, Ibadan, Oyo State, identified as Akintola Damife, it was earlier revealed by the accused that a soft drink bottle fell and broke into the child’s eye.
According to a relative of the victim, they saw a deep cut on Damife’s face and accosted her teacher whose name has been given as Mrs Odugbesan.
Upon further investigation and interrogation, the suspect later admitted to beating the kid for reasons best known to her.
The kid is currently in unbearable pain after allegedly being injured by her teacher.
“I suspect is a fallacy because we interrogated the victim and even though she couldn’t speak well, she said the injury wasn’t as a result of the bottle. We’ve handed her over to the police and hope we get positive results at the end of the day.”
