Teachers in Nigeria need mental evaluation – Laura Ikeji-Kanu
Businesswoman, Laura Ikeji-Kanu has recommended that Nigerian teachers should undergo a mental evaluation to ascertain they are normal before parents can entrust their children in their care.
Laura was reacting to news of the death in Asaba, Delta State, of a one-year-seven-month-old pre-Nursery pupil of the school, Obina Udeze boy, who died five days after his teacher, Emeka Nwogbo, had reportedly flogged Udeze, leaving marks of the cane on his body.
The little boy was said to have fallen sick after the beating and was taken to the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba. It was learnt that his health condition deteriorated until he eventually died on Saturday morning.
One account said the teacher flogged Udeze for pushing another child while another claimed that the victim was punished for playing with a tap in the school.
