Students of IMG Secondary School, Oke Ado, Ibadan, on Wednesday, expressed outrage after their colleague was allegedly flogged to death by a teacher.

The yet-to-be identified student reportedly slumped and died following severe punishment from a teacher for arriving late to school.

Some properties of the school were destroyed by the students before policemen arrived at the scene.

Chairs and tables, cabinets were destroyed by the protesting students, even as they scattered documents.

Windows and doors of the staff room were also vandalized.

As the protest escalated, teachers and administrative workers of the school took to their heels for fear of being attacked.

An eye witness told Nigerian Tribune that trouble started when the student arrived school after classes had commenced for the day.

“He told the teacher he came late due to illness.

“At that point, the principal, who was passing by asked the teacher the cause of the discussion.

“The principal ordered the teacher to flog the student for coming late and he slumped in the process.

“They tried to resuscitate him but it was too late”, he disclosed.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Oyo State Police Command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, who confirmed the incident said investigation into the matter had commenced.
