Court Sends Proprietress, 3 Teachers To Prison For Using Cane On Students

The incident happened at a popular school known as Altitude International School located at Ebie Street in Ago, Okota area of Lagos.

Newsflash247 reports that the police at Gender Section of the Command arrested and charged the proprietress and three teachers before the court for allegedly using a cane as a corrective measure on the two kids in the school.

The suspects were Alhaja Romota Abass, 61, Obialor Nkechika, 37, Wale Emmanuel, 26 and Robert Emmanuel, 36.

It was gathered that Chief Enekwa, the father of the two pupils aged between 8 and 10, went to the police and reported that the teachers caned his children against his wish and he wanted them to be arrested and prosecuted.

The police then went to the school, arrested the owner of the school, Mrs Abass, three other teachers and detained them at the Command for child abuse.

They were later charged before Ikeja Magistrates court for the alleged offence.
They pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Mr. Benson Emuerhi did not oppose their bail condition.
Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O Sule-Amzat granted them bail in the sum of N20,000 with two sureties in like sum.
They were remanded in prison custody pending when they will perfect their bail condition.
The matter was adjourned till 12 July 2018.

When our correspondents contacted Chief Enekwa who resided at 34 Mukandasi Street in Ago, Okota, Lagos, he declined to make comments but claimed that he had withdrawn his children from the school and wanted justice.

However, the incident had attracted so many reactions as the residents insisted that Chief Enekwa had a hidden agenda to blackmail the school management over the school fees of the victims. One of the residents was heard saying that he did so in order to extort money from the management and was using the police to execute his plan.
