Emmanuel Amidu Vomits & Dies After Simple Faith School Teacher Flogged Him by envoymedia: 2:01pm On May 25
Lagos Pupil Vomits And Dies After He Was Allegedly Flogged By His Teacher Over Homework (Photo)

A junior student of Simple Faith Schools, Agbara, Lagos State, has died after he was allegedly flogged by his teacher, IgbereTV reports.

Emmanuel Amidu died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Surulere.

The victim’s father, Akinola Amidu, claimed that the 12-year-old JSS2 student was flogged by a teacher at school for not completing his assignment on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

He said his son started vomiting shortly after the beating and was rushed to a hospital, where he gave up the ghost on Friday, May 13, 2022.

The father alleged that the school management was covering up his son’s death and protecting the mathematics teacher, one Steven, who flogged Emmanuel and the rest of the class for failing to do their homework.

He said: "I was at home that Thursday because I was on leave. I recall that Emmanuel asked me for money to buy a new exercise book and I gave him N500 to buy the book and give the remaining change to his sister.

"Later that day, I was called by the management of the school that Emmanuel was vomiting. Meanwhile, this was a boy who left home without any health issue. I had to go to the school and we moved him to a hospital.

"I later learnt that the whole thing started after their class teacher, Mr Steven, beat the whole of his class for not completing their mathematics assignment.

"Emmanuel was actually using my phone torchlight to do his assignment a day before, but I had to collect the phone from him and his sister because I needed to be in contact with the office. We had issues with our electricity at home.

"It was at LUTH that I lost my son. Meanwhile, the management of the school quickly ran to the Morogbo Police Station at Agbara to report that my son died from vomiting.

"How can somebody just die from vomiting if nothing triggers it? The management of the school is trying to protect the teacher."

Akinola, 45, demanded the arrest and prosecution of the teacher, as he urged the state government and the police to give the family justice.

Emmanuel’s 13-year-old sister, Rachael, told the publication that her brother vomited after he was beaten.

She said: "I was called by our English teacher that my brother was not feeling fine and he did not eat and had been sleeping.

"His friend told me that they were beaten for not doing their sums in mathematics and after that he was just sleeping and vomiting."

The school Principal, Adetayo Akanji, told Punch: "I was there when Emannuel died on Friday and it was unfortunate that it happened this way. Yes, Steven flogged the whole class for not doing their sums, but not with the intention to hurt them.

"Some hours after that, he (Emmanuel) placed his head on his desk and he started vomiting, after which water was poured on his head.

"When he started to vomit, the proprietor called me and we took the boy to the hospital. In fact, the father joined us when he was taken to LUTH where he and I were running around to get prescribed drugs for him. But before we came back, he had given up. Our school reported the matter at the Morogbo Police Station."

Similar incident happened during my secondary school days.

These guy connive with a friend to go to the cinema during school hours not knowing someone saw them.

After they returned, the teacher asked him were he has been

The rest turned to history.

If it wasn't for autopsy that saves the teacher before people begins to condemned him for being harsh.

There ought to be discipline, whatsoever. But when it gets too extreme, dissuade from it completely.

You automatically becomes "mumu" when you refused to suck your mom breast milk when you were a kid.

You think your girlfriend breast milk will reset your medulla oblongata but instead it makes you a mumu for life undecided

Too many senseless people on Nairaland.
Anyway from my point of view I think the boy died from something else not flogging because the whole class was flogged and so why is his own case different.
Meanwhile the hospital should conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death

If this is found out to be true, what will be the best punishment for the teacher?

Homework and assignment at any educational level is useless only projects which are given considerable time to submit and defend make sense. I can't leave my house before seven remain till 4 or 6 and be expected to submit a write-up or whatever the next day.

They flogged the entire class, only one child died. Obviously there was something else wrong with the child that the "trauma" from the flogging exacerbated. I feel for the parents though, it's quite a sad state, but in all honesty, even the parents will admit just flogging didn't cause his death. A competent autopsy will probably identify the root cause.

While I don't like teachers flogging their students for anything, you can't conclude it was because of the beating the boy died. It may be something else entirely and the beating just happened to be a coincidence of some sort...

In a school I worked last year, the proprietress specifically told the students that no teacher was allowed to use cane or any other form of punishment on them as a result of these the students became "over spoilt" to the extent of them placing a bet to see who could fumble a female teacher's breast in class and they did it. So tell me why you send kids to school if not to get disciplined and educated

An autopsy is needed before any conclusion

Nigerians are quick to jump into conclusion without proper investigation
The boy might’ve been having a certain illness unknown to the parents

How many times do our middle class Nigerian parents take us to the hospital for checkups?

The boy’s father said and I quote:
He was using my phone torchlight for assignment but i later took it from him bc I was expecting some calls from the office..


Must the assignment be done at night hours?
Why can’t it be done during the day after school ?
That’s a sign of a probing man (akobadaba)
It’s also a sign that the boy might be someway irresponsible too

When an autopsy is done we’ll know the real truth behind his death bc he wasn’t the only one who was flogged
May his soul Rest In Peace

Perhaps he has been ill without the knowledge of his parents. I was also a victim of brutal beating in secondary school by prefect and staff way back 2004. I had to study my daughter current school well so that my daughter doesn't experience hash learning experience, it's really traumatizing, thank God I can afford a good school with professional teachers for her. Some school need to understand that discipline is different from brutality. May his soul rest in peace and may God comfort his family and the school management.

Well I think conducting an autopsy will reveal the true cause of his death and well I'm so happy you can afford a good school and I pray God blesses us all so we can send our kids to good schools.
