Photos: Lagos school dismisses 2-year-old pupil after her father made a child abuse/neglect report to the police


Lawyer and activist Emeka Ugwuonye shared a case he is currently investigating. According to him, a father had gone to pick up his daughter from school only to find her bleeding on the head. He reported the case to the police and the school authorities dismissed his child. Read through the report after the cut..

“My uncle got to his daughter’s school for pick up after the end of school day in the evening! @7:30pm cos there’s a special arrangement for pupils staying after school hours.. He met his daughter bleeding on the head and he asked whoever was in charge some questions and the only reply they gave was it’s not their fault that it happened in the afternoon without placing a call to her parents neither did they give her a first aid treatment That’s been unfair to a 24 months old baby girl… He reported the case to the police station and the school management was summoned and with all said and done, they pleaded with no sign of being remorseful and the child resumed after being treated and all only for the parents to get a dismissal letter from the school that the child has been dismissed after all.. Thanks”
