The students, made up of Christians and Muslims, had a rude shock of their lives when a decision was taken by the management of the school for them to be mercilessly flogged.
Some of them who spoke with Class91.3FM‘s Western regional correspondent said they had their buttocks, arms, and back lacerated from the flogging.
Narrating the ordeal he went through at the hands of a teacher, one of the students said he cannot sit down because of his bruised buttocks.
According to him, he was canned for being late to the church.
“I was flogged for being late to the church,” he said crying.
The students alleged that the teachers flogged them as if they were armed robbers who had been caught in the act.
They noted that this is a senior high school where students were at liberty to choose which religion they want to belong to and, therefore, wondered why they had to be punished for that.
