Odilinye Rita, a teacher at Starlight Seconday School, Ogidi, Anambra State, has been beaten to death for flogging a 14-year-old student, Okafor Chinaza.
Akahi News gathered that the teacher passed away after being beaten by the parents of the student on Wednesday, November 29, 2017.
It was gathered that Rita allegedly flogged Chinaza for not sweeping the class according to the roaster.
Chinaza’s classmates said when the teacher questioned Chinaza on why she didn’t sweep, she responded with insults.
She then asked her to kneel down, but she refused which led the teacher to annoyingly flog her. Afterwards, Chinaza went home and came back with her mother and uncle.
“I was in my office with one of my teachers when she came in,” said the proprietress.
“I pleaded with them to allow the school look into the issue with diplomacy, as revenge won’t yield needed result. She accepted to forget and forgive as I promised her that we will handle the case,” she added.
However, as the parents were leaving, they sighted the teacher coming back from the private teachers meeting she had gone to.
The mother reportedly rushed to her and landed the stick she came with on her. The teacher collapsed and was rushed to Iyi-Enu Hospital, Ogidi, where she was confimed dead by the doctor.
