“She gave me ‘wanka’, that was why I beat her on the leg with a small ruler.”

Pronounced as “uwarka” in Hausa, literally meaning ‘Your Mother’, it is an abusive word used by stretching out one’s five fingers toward a person.

Adedeji continued, “The father slapped me four times close to 4 pm because school closes at 3 pm. His daughter reported what happened at 12.30 pm to him at the close of school when he came to pick her up.

“The child is not serious with her studies and insults teachers that come to the class.”

A parent who witnessed the incident, Magdalene Ukuedojor, alleged that the female pupil has a habit of insulting everyone, stressing that the father had no justification to lay hands on a nursing mother and teacher of his child.

When contacted, Jimeta said the teacher had been assaulting his child for weeks.

“After two days, she beat the child and sent her to come home and tell us that she’s beaten her and dared us to do what we want to do.

“If you see the marks and the blood on her legs. She made me crazy.”
