Pandemonium engulfed Araromi Ilogbo Secondary School in Oko Afo, Lagos, as students took to the streets in protest following the tragic demise of one of their classmates, 16-year-old David Babadipo.
The unrest unfolded after reports surfaced that Babadipo had succumbed to injuries inflicted by a teacher during a flogging incident.
The incident, which allegedly included a teacher named Oluwale, happened on Thursday. Sources claim that the aforementioned teacher physically punished David, who had been sick for a few days.
The 16-year-old was subsequently rushed to a hospital after the flogging, where he was later confirmed dead.
A video that has gone viral on social media shows the chaotic scenes within the school, with students rushing in all directions.
A background voice explains that the deceased student was going to buy something when the teacher allegedly called him back and flogged him Mercilessly, which led to his premature death.
Reactions on social media revealed how serious the situation was. Mama Sassy D, an X user, stated, “This is my vicinity. They have started rioting already. The said teacher might not survive this period.”
However, a Facebook user, Esther Wusu, refuted the claim that the pupil was flogged to death, adding the name of the teacher given was that of the school’s vice principal.
“First and foremost, Mr Oluwale is a Vice Principal and he didn’t beat him for not paying attention in class because he doesn’t teach, he didn’t even beat him at all.
“That child has (sic) been sick since Tuesday and the parent didn’t take him to the hospital. It got worse yesterday afternoon after the break and they called his parent to come to pick him up,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, another Facebook user, Bangose Jide, in a post wrote, “Teacher beat (sic) David Babadipo, 16-year-old to death at Araromi-Ilogbo Senior Secondary School, Oko-Afo.
“The teacher is named Mr Olawale, (a) vice principal. The case has been reported to the Morogbo Police Station at Badagry Expressway, Lagos State. David Babadipo was a native of Ipoti Ekiti State.” [CONTINUE READING HERE]
