A secondary school teacher, Sunday Adeshina has been remanded  Kirikiri prison, Lagos State after for flogged a female student until she started bleeding.

Adeshina, an economics teacher with Great Esteem Private Secondary School, Ijeshatedo area of Lagos  flogged a 14-year-old SS3 student identified as Onyinye Nwakaeme, on the head when she could not give a correct answer to questions he asked her during a class, eyewitnesses said.

Nwakaeme had obviously not been concentrating in that class when she was called on to answer a question and this got the teacher super angry.

The girl narrated: “We were taking Economics class that day and I was busy copying note. I had just returned from my father’s burial. Being behind schedule, I used every available time to copy my notes because I had a lot to write.

“The teacher saw me and called me out with some people, claiming that we were making noise and asked us to explain what he had been teaching. I didn’t get the question right because I was really not paying attention to him. Out of anger, he started flogging me.

“He flogged me to the point that I was bleeding on my head and he didn’t stop. Even when the proprietor asked him to stop, he was fierce and wanted to flog me more.”


The student was said to have returned to the school the next day with her siblings who wanted to find out the true state of things in the school, but did not find Adeshina.

The girl’s family reported the case at Ago police station for necessary actions to be taken since the teacher could not be located all day.

The student was the suspended indefinitely by the school management and this irked her family a lot.

The girl’s family demanded a reinstatement of the girl but the school owner, Pastor Rotimi Olu Joseph, vehemently opposed it, claiming that the girl’s family stormed the school premises with thugs.

“We gave the girl suspension because it shows that she is not fit to be in the same environment with us. If they can take laws into their hands, then their ward has no place in the school,” Olu told dailypostng.

“Except they write to the school that she will be of good conduct, she will not be reinstated.”

Adeshina, while reacting to the allegations refused to accept the blame but rather insisted that it remains his obligation as a teacher to correct erring students by beating or punishing them.

The teacher was charged to court for assault and was granted bail in the sum of N70,000.

He was transferred to Kirikiri prisons pending the time he would meet up with his bail conditions.
