OWERRI—A team of medical personnel are battling to save the life of Mrs. Mary-Ann Oguezuonu, a female teacher at Obosima Secondary Technical School, Ohaji-Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State, who was brutalized by irate male students of the college.
Reports emanating from Obosima revealed that the students attacked the nursing mother with machetes.
The teacher’s alleged offence was that she spotted a female student that changed her school uniform into a skimpy outfit and threatened that the college authorities would send her packing if she wore such an indecent dress to school again.
It was also gathered that while Mrs. Oguezuonu was cautioning the JSS2 student, a male SS1 student jumped into the classroom and rudely confronted the teacher on why she was embarrassing the female student.
“The male student, who was not satisfied with the verbal insults he heaped on the teacher, went further to grab Mrs. Oguezuonu’s blouse,” a student told Vanguard.
The student recalled that the ensuing noise attracted other teachers to the class and the offending student was dragged to the staff room where he was flogged.
Another teacher told Vanguard: “While still cuddling her five-month old baby in the staff room, the irate male student mobilized others, suspected to be fellow cult members.
“They came into the staff room, armed with cutlasses and attacked the teacher.”
When contacted, the teacher’s relation, Mr. Francis Moore, confirmed the story and pointed out that the matter had been reported to the police.
He said: “The matter has been reported to the police and some arrests have been made, but the main suspect, Chimaobi Precious Agu, is still at large at the time of this telephone interview.”
