Imagine what the principal of christian secondary commercial school at obio imo did to my brother’s back because he couldn’t make it to school. The man didn’t even bother to find out if d boy was sick or didn’t have transport.
The principal identified as E.O Oseneke sent the message below to mfon’s father before meting out the punishment.
Dear mfon,this is notify you that you are to attend lessons everyday in the school,you didn’t attend on friday and saturday,you have penalised,you will receive the penalty on monday.
Its unclear at the time of filing this report if a police/human rights violation complaint was launched by the Akpan family.
