Massive Mix-up as teacher allegedly flogs pupil to death in Lagos

There was full blown melee in Oko Afo area of Lagos state on Thursday after information came to public knowledge that a student has been flogged to death by a teacher.

The incident reportedly occurred at Araromi Ilogbo Secondary when the deceased, identified as David Babadipo, was allegedly flogged by the teacher whose name was given as Oluwale.

It was gathered that the 16-year-old deceased who had been indisposed for some days was rushed to a hospital after he was flogged where he was pronounced dead.

However, mixed reaction have continued to trail the incident, while some claimed the late pupil met his end after he was subjected to corporal punishment, others dismissed the claim saying the death of the pupil was caused by an illness that has plagued him for days but was not treated.

In a viral video on social media, many pupils of the school could be seen running wildly and aimlessly within the school compound and outside its premises.

 voice in the background disclosed that the deceased pupil wanted to go out to purchase something when he was allegedly flogged by a teacher leading to his demise.

Commenting on the video, an X user, Mama Sassy D, wrote, “This is my vicinity. They have started rioting already. The said teacher might not survive this period.”

However, a Facebook user, Esther Wusu, said there was no iota of truth in claims 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.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, had yet to confirm whether the case was reported at the station as a text message sent to enquire from him had not been responded to as of the time of filing this report.
