NAIJ.com came across the video of a teacher getting physical with one of his students, in Abuja.
According to a video which has since gone viral on social media, a teacher of the Best Schools International, Abuja, was seen brutalising a female student.
The teacher whose name was given as Francis, was seen punching and slapping an unnamed female student, even as they were surrounded by other students.
Read what happened according to an eyewitness who recorded the video:
"There was an altercation between a female minor and a man, Francis, which led to the physical assault of the girl. Not brutal but it happened. The man repeatedly punched and slapped this girl.
She and her classmate were sitting on a table and he punished them for it. Released her classmate who was a male and decided to flog her. After flogging her, he continued to use his fists and hands on her, until I got in between.
This happened at best schools international life camp Abuja, yesterday, and instead of penalizing Francis, nothing is being done about it, rather the girl is being blamed. Incidences like this happen at this school but nothing is done or said about it."
