Nigerian Soldier Flogs Student To Death For Having ‘Bushy Hair’ At Command School In Enugu
A student from Enugu’s Command Secondary School was allegedly flogged to death by a soldier whose identity has not been revealed.
The senior secondary one (SS 1) student was repeatedly beaten on the head for allegedly having bushy hair and not getting a haircut before school.
The deceased’s mother announced his death in a Facebook post on the Nkanu People of Enugu State Nigeria platform, which included photos of him with a swollen eye and head before his death.
According to sources, the boy’s head began to swell, prompting his parents to transfer him from one hospital to another until his untimely death.
“It is still very hard to believe that you are gone my son,” Adaeze Chibuzo wrote on her Facebook page. “But one thing I know is that God will surely fight for us, rest in peace my son.”
“In command sec, sch enugu, an army man flogged my son to death in school.” “I’m going to eat my first fruit.”
