Man Arrested in Handcuffs

Some male students Obosima Secondary Technical School in Imo State attacked a female teacher with machetes.

The unfortunate incident occurred because the victim, Mary-Ann Oguezuonu, scolded a female JSS2 student who had changed from school uniform into a skimpy outfit that was deemed inappropriate for a school environment.

Oguezuonu threatened that school authorities would send her away from the school if she was ever seen dressing in that manner again. While advising the young girl, an SS1 male student confronted her, telling her to stop embarrassing the girl, Vanguard reports. He then grabbed the teacher’s blouse, as he yelled at her.

Other teachers found out what had happened, and immediately sent the male student into the staff room, where he was subsequently flogged.

As Oguezuonu was nursing her five-month-old baby in the staff room, the male student mobilized other students, suspected to be cult members, and they attacked her with cutlasses.

The victim is reportedly in critical condition, as doctors battle to save her life.

Chimaobi Precious Agu, who is said to be the main suspect in the attack, is currently at large. Police authorities are currently investigating the case, and some arrests have been made.

    What has happened to the young people in our country? How can you have cults in secondary schools?

      Looooooool. These are not young people o. Have you seen the calibre of strong muscled “Boys-2-men” in igbo schools? STRONGGGG THING!
      Even the girls. During my youth service, I saw plenty. There was one school close to where I was first squatting after NYSC camp in trans Ekulu. every break time these semi adults will fill the streets and start taking professional photograph. If I dare go out to buy anything, u go fear my elder brother’s mate in shorts and short sleeved shirt toasting me. No be small fear.
      They now posted me to one secondary school in Enugu south; all girls! Ha! Big big chest, big asses… weight and height for days.
      “BENNY NA YOU GO TEACH THESE ONES ABI NA THEM GO TEACH YOU”?
      I ran mbok. Before person sit on my head.

      “”LOL”” is never the right response to a nursing mother being hacked with cutlasses. What are you???

    This thought still crossed my mind yesterday, you need to see what some of our young girls wear to school. I begin to wonder if school uniforms are going out of fashion. This attack is the heights of lawlessness in an educational environment and a reflection of a certain breed of Nigerian youths. Na wa o, if our senators are not flying over fences, our youths are matcheting their teachers. God help us o

    How awful! Is she going to be expected to pay for her hospital bills? Will she be able to afford it? Will she be fit to work once she’s fully recovered? If not, will her family be able to sustain itself? If she needs it, how can this woman be helped. I cant even imagine being in her position.

    When lawmakers scale fences, when the executive uses intimation to deal with people, what do you expect the citizens to do??? There’s lawlessness in every sector of Nigeria!! Everybody thinks they’ve the right to do whatever they want!! They should jail those students, even if they are minors.

    Que sera sera! The rot will spread and consume the entire citizenry if something is not done to fix the problems. Bottom line: why would school students obey laws when the ‘big people’ they see do not?

    The problem is the rot in society is getting deeper. People are getting recruited into cultist behavior in elementary school. Life for youth in Nigeria is becoming life in the favelas of Brazil or life in Honduras and El Salvador.

    Much as what has happened is deplorable and unacceptable, all I’ve seen here is continuous bashing of the Nigerian citizenry. Would you step back a bit and proffer possible solutions cause it’s always easier to blame? Yes, we have a broken society, but what do we do to fix or start mending it?

    We have all contributed and still. contributing to the lawlessness in Nigeria. How are we living our lives? Who are the role models that the youths are looking u up to? What are we exposing the youths to? The answers are staring us all in the face. Prostitution and nudity in the name of fashion and entertainment; Yahoo Yahoo and political violence; over-indulgence of children in the name of love. How can the youth develop as law abiding and disciplined citizens in the face of all these socio-cultural maladies?
