A building contractor(name withheld) on Wednesday was roundly beaten and stripped naked in the public by teachers of Metropolitan Girls Secondary School, Enugu(pictured is a set) for impregnating an SS1 student of the school.
The teenage girl(name withheld) had collapsed during the school assembly with blood oozing out of her genital, and was rushed to the clinic where it was confirmed that she is pregnant.
Reports have it that she subsequently named the contractor as the one responsible for her pregnancy. It was said that he was invited to the school and was put to shame by the teachers before they handed him over to security agencies.
Speaking with journalists over the issue in his office, the state Commissioner for Education, Professor Uche Okolo, confirmed the incident.
He said: “A man was apprehended. The man defiled a girl and she got pregnant. The child was bleeding and rushed to hospital.
“The school made a report to NAPTIP and the man came to the school to take the girl and he was arrested. The good thing is that he has been apprehended. He should go and face the law.”
