A teacher simply identified as Mr David has fled after he reportedly beat a 16-year-old SS3 female student of Government Girls Science Secondary School, Kuje, Abuja, Christabel Mimi Henry, to a state of coma.
The victim’s mother, Stella Henry lamented that Mimi has been hospitalised after the teacher hit her with an iron rod.
She added that her daughter was set to undergo a scan to determine the severity of the injury.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that Mimi was on Friday evening beaten into a state of coma by the teacher and was rushed to the General Hospital in Kuje.
She has regained consciousness but is set to undergo a scan to ascertain the level of injury to her head.
The teacher was said to have run away to evade arrest .
Narrating what her daughter told her after regaining consciousness, Mrs Henry said, “It was when he (the teacher) hit her that my daughter now exclaimed, ‘Jesus Christ’. He demanded to know what she meant by that. He now lifted the iron and was aiming at my daughter’s head so she shifted herself and it hit her on the shoulder.
“He lifted it again to hit her a second time, but she held the rod with her right hand and the sharp edge of the rod slashed the middle of her palm, injuring three fingers on that palm. She started bleeding but the teacher refused to give up. He held her on the right hand and slapped her severally on the face.
“When he slapped her on the face, her fellow students intervened and tried to pull her up. He hit her a second time on the same shoulder with the iron rod and pushed her and she hit the back of her head on a chair and fainted. That was the only thing she could remember.
“At around 10 pm, a group of students from the school called to alert me that I should start going to the General Hospital where my daughter who was still unconscious was admitted. I rushed to the hospital with my husband and saw her lying lifeless on the hospital bed.”
The mother further said her daughter is out of coma but because of the head she hit on the ground, the hospital has referred them to go for a scan in town.
