He said it happened because his brother couldn’t answer correctly a math question posed to him. “The school initially made us believe he slumped and died while he was trying to answer the question on the board, a boy who wasn’t ill or showed any sign of sickness before,” @RidwanOyewunmi wrote.
The school proprietress, principal and Mr Emmanuel had brought Bolu’s corpse back home and the family buried him a few hours later according to Muslim’s doctrine.
“Meanwhile Bolu’s other brother, Lateef Omelaja was prevented from leaving the school premises, in order to prevent him from spreading the true news to us at home and to buy Mr Emma more time to run away.
“We believed the cock and bull story the school fed us until Lafeef got home at around 5 pm and narrated what really happened at the school to us. We also confirmed this from other students of the school including classmates of Boluwatife
“The painful part is, the school keeps trying to cover up for Mr Emma claiming he didn’t beat Bolu. Mr Emma is on the run, nowhere to be found. I know no amount of punishment for him will bring back my brother but I just want Mr Emma located and justice served,” @RidwanOyewunmi tweeted.
There have been varying degrees of reactions to the story. While some users are reacting in disbelief others are also lending a voice to the call for justice. You can get access to the full Twitter thread here. What are your thoughts on this incidence?
