A 13-year-old Olive Nmmesoma Anigbogu lost consciousness during school hours last Thursday June 6th after her class teacher flogged her 26 strokes of the cane at Saint De Apostle High School in Onitsha, Anambra state.
According to her mother, Theodora Anigbogu, who spoke with LIB, on the day of the incident, Olive’s class teacher, Chidinma Uzoigwe, came to class and asked the students to submit their homework.
Olive who wasn’t in the school the previous day, informed her that she had no homework to submit as she wasn’t in school the previous day.
The teacher went on to flog her 26 strokes of the cane on one hand. This caused Olive to loose consciousness. She fainted and was rushed to the General Hospital Onitsha.
Mrs Anigbogu was contacted and she rushed to the hospital where she met her daughter in a sad state.
Olive has been in and out of the hospital since then. Her mother says she has been referred the Borromeo hospital where a brain scan will be carried out on Olive on Tuesday June 17th as Olive now acts strangely.
She added that she has been the one paying for the medical tests and drugs given to her daughter since the unfortunate incident.
