Spread the love

A Twitter user has alleged that a Lagos teacher beat his junior brother to death over the boy’s failure to correctly answer a question asked of him during their mathematics session.

The man, whose Twitter handle identified him as Ridwan Oyewunmi, on Friday narrated the incident, which he claimed involved one Elihans College in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.

He said the school authorities had made them believe the young boy, whom he identified as Boluwatife Omelaja, had slumped and died while attempting to answer a question in the front of the classroom.

“I just lost my brother to School Teacher Brutality. Mr. Emmanuel is a sec school teacher at Elihans college, Ikorodu in Lagos,” Oyewunmi wrote in a Twitter thread.

The school initially made us believe he slumped and died while he was trying to answer the question on the board, a boy who wasn’t ill or showed any sign of sickness before.#JusticeForBolu

“The school initially made us believe he slumped and died while he was trying to answer the question on the board, a boy who wasn’t ill or showed any sign of sickness before.

“He was brought home in the school’s bus by the school proprietress and principal, along with Mr. Emma-whom we didn’t know was the killer at that time, and he was buried a few hours later according to the Muslims doctrine.”

Meanwhile Bolu’s other brother, Lateef Omelaja was prevented from leaving the school premises, in order to prevent him from spreading the true news to us at home and to buy Mr Emma more time to run away.#JusticeForBolu

Oyewunmi also said the principal conveyed the boy’s corpse with the school bus to his parents’ home.

He, however, added that one Lateef Omelaja, the deceased’s sibling, “who was prevented from leaving the school,” later returned and narrated what he claimed transpired.

“Meanwhile Bolu’s other brother, Lateef Omelaja was prevented from leaving the school premises, in order to prevent him from spreading the true news to us at home and to buy Mr. Emma more time to run away,” he added.

“We believed the cock and bull story the school fed us not until Lafeef got home at around 5 pm and narrated what really happened at the school to us.

“We also confirmed this from other students of the school including classmates of Boluwatife.

The painful part is, the school keeps trying to cover up for Mr emma claiming he didn’t beat Bolu.

Mr Emma is on the run, nowhere to be found.

I know no amount of punishment for him will bring back my brother but i just want Mr Emma located and justice served.#JusticeForBolu
