JSS 1 student flogged in school, sues the Ekiti Govt for N15m in damages for breach of her fundamental rights

A student of Mary Immaculate Secondary School, Ado- Ekiti, has sued the Ekiti Government before a state High Court seeking N15 million in damages for breach of fundamental rights. (Read More Here).

Gift Agenoisa, a Junior Secondary School 1 student, in a suit number HAD/01/CR/2021 and sworn to, at the Ado-Ekiti High Court, on her behalf by Odunayo Agenoisa, claimed that her suspension from school by the government infringed on her rights.

She described as cruel and inhuman the alleged treatment meted to her for coming to school with an alleged indecent hairstyle. In the affidavit attached to the originating summons, she claimed that she was singled out of Assembly on May 22, and given 20 lashes, on the order of the school principal for the alleged indecent hairstyle.

The plaintiff claimed that the beating she got that day, resulted in bruises, life-threatening scars and bloodstains on her uniform, adding that she fainted and was rushed to the police clinic in Ado- Ekiti, where she was resuscitated.

She is demanding N15 million damages for her suspension. She also demanded her immediate reinstatement to school with unfettered access to all services being rendered therein.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that on May 22, the plaintiff’s father and a police sergeant, identified as Elijah, allegedly mobilised four armed policemen to the school to manhandle some teachers for scolding his daughter who was said to have come to school with an indecent hairdo against the school rules and regulation
