Gift Udeze, the grieving mother of 19-month-old Obinna Udeze who was flogged to death by his teacher in a private school in Asaba, the capital city of Delta state, is currently seeking justice for her son, she asks well-meaning Nigerians to lend her their voices.



Gift who recently had an exclusive with ITV news, said her child’s hands and legs were tied with white handkerchiefs before he was mercilessly flogged by his teacher, Mr Emeka Joshua Nwogbo, who is a son the owner of the school.



She added that she just enrolled her child in the school, which makes it his first term in the school, narrating that she was attacked by the school proprietor and her son when she went to inquire what happened that made them flog her child, 2 weeks ago when the incident happened



Well calling on Nigerians to lend her their voices, she said;


”I am begging every person. They should stand up in my defense and fight this fight for me because it might not only happen to my son. It can happen to someone else. I have been hearing it happen.


Even I heard the issue of Sylvester but Sylvester’s own was not a teacher. They said it was a fellow student. My own is an aged woman who is above 60. That is why I am begging them. They should come to my rescue”


The grandmother of the child said when she asked what had happened, the school authorities told her the teacher flogged the toddler because he was stubborn.


”Did he enter your room and spoil anything? They said no. Did he fight with his classmates? They said no. What did he do? They said he is stubborn” the grandmother said


Meanwhile, the Delta state government has indefinitely sealed the school and  the proprietress and her son who allegedly flogged the child to death are currently in police custody.
