Teacher Allegedly Flogs Student To Death In Zamfara

A teacher at Government Day Secondary School, Sankalawa in Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara has allegedly flogged a student to death. The incident was revealed on Wednesday by Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar-Gummi, Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly. The deputy speaker, who spoke under matters of urgent public importance during the assembly’s sitting in Gusau, said that the house had received several reports on the issue.

According to him, another incident at Government Female Day Secondary School, Kwatarkwashi, has led to the injury of a student in the school after the Vice Principal allegedly subjected her to heavy punishment.

“These problems apart from discouraging our children from acquiring education, also revealed poor attitude to work on the part of teachers in this state,” Gumni said.

He urged the House to invite the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology to explain steps taken to address the issues.

The Speaker, Alhaji Sanusi Rikiji described the actions of the teachers as unfortunate and vowed that the assembly would not allow the matter to pass.

“It is part of our responsibilities to ensure effective security and good learning atmosphere for our children for their future development, therefore, we cannot allow teachers to continue harassing our children from schools,” he said.

The Speaker directed the House Committee on Education, Science and Technology to invite the commissioner to appear before it on the matter. Meanwhile, the Assembly has passed into law the bill for the establishment of Zamfara State University, Talata-Mafara.
