Parents tackle teacher for flogging pupil

A teacher of the Faith Academy, Gowon Estate, Lagos, has reportedly been charged to court after a pupil she flogged sustained serious injuries.
The tutor, identified simply as Mrs. Onakoya, reportedly flogged Michael Modupe, a JS3 pupil after a misdemeanour, leaving him with cane marks and serious injuries.
A source close to the family told our correspondent that the parents of the boy were shocked to see their son with his skin peeled off by cane.
“The boy was beaten ruthlessly because he went to the bathroom without the teacher’s permission.  He was beaten almost to a state of coma for not obtaining the permission of the teacher. He said he tried to explain but she flogged him mercilessly.
The beating was so severe that he had to be taken to a hospital for checks. The parents have commenced legal action against the teacher to serve  as a deterrent because we know that she could not have flogged her own child like that,’’ she said.
Meanwhile, the Principal, Mr. Ishola Ayoade, has denied knowledge of the suit. While admitting that the incident happened, Ayoade said the school had written a letter to the parents to resolve the matter.
“When you are a soldier, you should not be surprised to hear the sounds of gunshots. There are peculiarities of running a school and the teacher involved has been sanctioned.  We are not aware that the teacher has been sued. The school has written the parents and the sanctions given to the teacher was communicated to them.
“As a mission school, discipline cannot be compromised but there are procedures to follow.  We do not condone indiscipline from both teachers and pupils. There are times that pupils will anger you so much that you will misbehave if you are not careful. The teacher has been sanctioned but it is an internal matter such that the details cannot be discussed with you,’’ he said.

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
