A student was reportedly brutalized at the Nigerian Navy Secondary School in Abeokuta

In what will seem like a truly surprising development, a video surfaced on social media, in which a student was seen showing his friend the injuries he sustained after being brutalized by a naval officer at the Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Abeokuta. in the state of Ogun …

Facebook user Vivian Madu shared the video saying: “This inhuman and degrading treatment was inflicted on an SS 3 student of the Nigerian Navy secondary school, Abeokuta, under the supervision of a female commander, Ms. Jecinta Uche Asetuebube, by a second lieutenant Rollins Okoji.”

Vivian Madu further stated that “when the commander was first contacted, he denied the video, adding that further investigation revealed that the incident occurred before the end of the last term.

But the Nigerian Navy headquarters reacted to the incident, telling parents “Avoid recycling this type of materials to avoid creating tensions and grudges”.

According to a statement by the Nigerian Navy Information Director, Commodore Suleiman Dahun, the video was sent to the school management by a parent who did not specify when the accident occurred or the person involved.

Dahun, however, said a preliminary investigation had revealed that “The accident happened 2 sessions ago”, adding that it was administratively managed.

“For the avoidance of doubt, further investigations are underway on the matter”, he assured, adding that the Nigerian Navy was aware of the need to maintain discipline in its schools without resorting to unorthodox methods.

DAILY POST reports that the video is coming at a time when the Ogun state government is warning schools to stop using corporal punishment to instill discipline on pupils.

Recently, Ogun State Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology Professor Abayomi Arigbabu said the state disapproves of any form of punishment that inflicts injury on students.
