There is an interesting update on the two-year-old child who returned from school on Wednesday brutally attacked with a swollen upper lip, a deep cut in the face, and other body injuries.
The little girl who has now been identified as Joyce caught the interest of well-meaning Nigerians after her uncle, Sule, took to Twitter to lament the extent of his niece’s injuries upon returning from school after she left home that morning hale and hearty.
It is a relief to know that Sule did just as he had threatened, to involve the police in the matter after the school failed to provide the family with any explanations on the exact circumstances that led to the two-year-old being so badly injured.
Human rights activist, Prince Harrison Gwamnishu has also taken up the case and has identified the school where that type of negligence took place as God’s Delight School in Auchi area of Edo state.
Harrison who traveled down to Edo state where he made a formal report at the Edo state police command said the management of the school were all picked up.
He shared pictures and video evidence on his Facebook page with baby Joyce still visibly sore from the attack. The activist further alleged that even though the police have been involved, the school had yet to give any explanations relevant to the questions raised.
See what Harrison wrote on his Facebook page below:
