The proprietor of a school in Ogun state and the principal have been arrested for meting out callous punishments to two students.
According to reports, the proprietor of Metorite Standard School in the Ayetoro area of Ogun state, Afolayan Joseph and the school’s principal have been arrested for allegedly tying two pupils to a cross and flogging them.
I don’t know which is even more disturbing, the fact that the students were tied up like animals, or the fact that someone took the time to make a cross for this.
A police officer who witnessed the assault on the students ordered them to untie the students but the proprietor and principal attacked him instead.
Punch Metro reports that the policeman, whose name was given only as Livinus, ordered Afolayan Joseph to untie the students but the proprietor refused then went on to also beat up the policeman. Following the attack, Livinus called the Divisional Police Officer of the Itele Police Station to send officers to arrest the proprietor and his principal.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the arrests of the two men, as well as a teacher in the school. He said they will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.
