Tragedy Strikes Nigerian School As 16-year-old Student Dies After Alleged Teacher Assault

A disturbing incident unfolded at Araromi-Ilogbo Senior Secondary School, Oko-Afo, where a 16-year-old student, David Babadipo, lost his life after reportedly being flogged by a teacher identified as Mr. Oluwale. The tragic incident occurred on Thursday, and the victim, who had been unwell for several days, was rushed to a hospital after the alleged assault, where he was later confirmed dead.

A video captured the chaos that ensued at the school, with pupils seen running in disarray both within and outside the premises. According to an eyewitness, the deceased student was purportedly flogged by the teacher for attempting to leave the school premises to purchase something, leading to his untimely demise.

Social media has become a platform for conflicting accounts of the incident. While some users, such as Mama Sassy D, claim that unrest is brewing in the vicinity and express concerns for the teacher's safety, others, like Esther Wusu, dispute the narrative. Wusu argues that Mr. Oluwale, identified as the school's vice principal, did not beat the student and asserts that the child had been sick since Tuesday, with the parents allegedly neglecting to seek medical attention promptly.

Adding to the complexity, Bangose Jide, another social media user, reports the incident as a case of a teacher, Mr. Olawale, allegedly beating the student to death. Jide mentions that the matter has been reported to the Morogbo Police Station, Lagos State, and identifies the deceased as a native of Ipoti, Ekiti State.

As of now, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, has not confirmed whether the case has been officially reported to the station. Investigations into this tragic incident are ongoing, and the conflicting narratives highlight the need for a thorough examination of the circumstances surrounding David Babadipo's death.
