‘Bullying Is Common In Our School. Our Teachers Are Aware’ -Students Of Lead British School Speak Out | Videos

Lead British International School Abuja, has been in the eye of the storm over viral videos of bullying involving some of its students.

An X user, @moooyeeeee, had on Monday night posted two videos of a female student of the school, Namtira Bwala being repeatedly slapped by another female classmate named Maryam, while accusing the former of snatching a boy.

The user called for justice for the victim. Since they were posted, the videos have drawn the wrath of many users of the microblogging platform, who condemned the incident and called for the school authorities to investigate and punish the culprits.

Other videos of students being bullied at the school have also emerged.

In one of the videos posted on Tuesday, some male students in the school’s uniform are seen surrounding another boy who appears to be in casual attire.

A student slapped the boy, who was on his knees, and then some of the other boys who were gathered appealed to stop the ‘bully’ from further harming the boy, who was later whisked away in the nine-second video.

An X user, @PopoolaJoke4, who posted the video wrote, “No be the same school?”, in response to the first viral video of bullying in the same school that was released earlier.

Now, students of the school have spoken out. In an interview with Punch, the students revealed that bullying is a normal occurrence at their school and their teachers are aware but they do nothing about it.

They added that sometimes, their teachers witness these incidents but do not intervene.

They said in the video shared by the publication,

“And some teachers were watching them and they didn’t do anything. There was one time they poured cold water on us.”

The students told the reporters that the reason the school won’t grant them entrance is because they are guilty.

They continued:

“They are not allowing you guys inside? That’s because they are guilty. They have been acting like nothing happened.”

However, Namtira Bwala, the student assaulted by her fellow students has written the school management, demanding a thorough investigation and heavy sanctions for the 11 students who bullied her, PUNCH reports.

Two of the bullies were identified to be Maryam Hassan and a certain Faliya.

Bwala, in a letter addressed to the management of her school through her lawyers at the Deji Adeyanju and Partners Law Firm, gave the school an ultimatum of 48 hours after which she will seek legal redress.

A copy of the letter obtained by The PUNCH read,

“Our client and several other parents in Lead British International School have informed us and we verily believe them that this act of bullying is a reoccurring issue in the school, and despite several attempts to draw the school’s attention to it, the issue has persisted, leaving our client traumatised from the emotional and physical effect of the oppressive acts by these daredevil bullies.

“Our client completely dissociates herself from the statement issued by the school on April 22, 2024, wherein a case of battery was unconscionably referred to as an ‘incident between minors’.

“Sequel to the foregoing, we have our client’s instruction to demand an immediate investigation and the pronouncement of the stiffest possible sanctions in the student’s rule book on Ms. Maryam Hassan, Miss Faliya and nine other students who have formed a cult of bullies in Lead British International School, Gwarimpa, Abuja.

“Please note that if the school fails to sanction the student bullies within 48 hours of the receipt of this letter, we have our client’s further instruction to seek an immediate and severe legal redress against Lead British International School, Gwarimpa, without further recourse to you.”
