A 12- year-old student of a private secondary school in Lagos was allegedly beaten to death in the school for refusing to join a cult.
According to a Twitter user, @perrisonoromoni, who took to the platform to call the school out and demand justice for the death of his cousin, the adolescent boy was bullied to join a cult in the school, and when he blatantly refused, he was killed.
The Twitter user claimed that after the boy was beaten to a pulp by the cult boys who he identified before he died, the school called his father, claiming that he got injured while playing football. However, on getting to the hospital, doctors attested that he’d been roughly beaten, causing internal damage.
Sharing a photo of the deceased, the Twitter user wrote,
“ This is my 12 years old cousin that was beaten to death at a school that cost over 1 million naira. He mentioned 5 names before passing yesterday.
It’s a boarding school in Lagos. They called my uncle that he was n’t well so he went there took him and admitted him to an hospital in Warri. That’s where he passed but confessed that they tried blending him into cult.
