Ogbonnaya Ordu

”I  have two children at Ogo Oluwa  Nursery and Primary school, and on Monday when    my child , Samuel  Ogbonaya arrived from school, he said one of their aunties beat him  on the ground that he wore new uniform [ which is the old uniform the  school is  phasing out  . According to him , his teacher  said he should not come to school the following day.

I used to buy the   uniform from school, and for the fact that  this one has torn I went  to the market to buy the old one , they are still using it along side with the new one .  And since it is the same old  uniform they are still using .And on Tuesday the following day  I went   to the school and  I met Mama Seun the  school bursar and asked her why  they  are  beating my son and he said he was not going to school  unless  we go with him. I met mama Seun the bursar who denied  they were not chasing them out .

I went with him and showed them the torn old one, I pleaded to them that I had just paid 14,000 naira their school fees .I  told Mama Seun that I wanted to tell the teacher that I had no money to buy the new one now.I said let me go and explain to  the teacher but Mama Seun the bursar said no.On reaching there, my son said they sent one  Nove to call him and their teacher   started beating him.

I told the woman that I wanted to see her[ Mrs.Aladeniyi] the teacher , I explained to her that I had seen Mama Seun who said nobody was driven away because of school uniform but the woman  said I had no right to talk to her and should leave. I told her it is the part of the money I paid that they used to pay her salary , and I said I love the school that was why I was there and that the school met my standard .

She asked me to leave the class , we started argument  and she asked me to leave her office, I was dragging her hand before those people ran inside ,,  ..I didn’t beat her because I   know the implication they would say you beat somebody’s wife .On getting outside , I saw one of them called  Femi who just rushed me without asking anything , and I said can’t you help me out  and the lady too grabbed me . You can see my shirt .. the way they  tied me ,I was choking … … I was chocking, I am a Christian I will not lie even though I am going to court , I just tried to hit the boy with my head , immediately blood started rushing ,when they saw the degree of the blood rushing ,,,,, luckily the police people arrived and took us to the  station and I made my statement , we waited for the owner of the school, they said his brother , a pastor came to bail us .

I didn’t beat the lady , some of them  can frame up just anything.

However, the three showed evidence of their wounds, while Aladeniyi said she was injured and was hospitalized, Femi showed his bruised lips and teeth while Ogbonnaya showed his wounded neck to taiwoabiodun.com

The three were charged to Court and  had been remanded yesterday since they could not pay 20,000 naira in  fulfillment of  their bail condition.
