A 14-year-old student from Queen of the Holy Innocent Secondary School, Ogwume, Ideato lga, Imo State, Obinna Obiefuleh, was reportedly beaten to death in the school foyer.
A brother-in-law of the deceased student, who is also an actor and a rapper, Ikechukwu Onunaku, revealed this development.
Ikechukwu, writing in an Instagram post on Thursday, demanded justice for Obiefuleh.
He said the late student was discovered dead in the hostel around 1 a.m. with bruises all over him.
The actor, who shared a video of the deceased at his wedding, wrote: “It’s so sad. This is Obinna, 14 years old, my in-laws, my wife’s cousin. This footage is from him at my wedding. He was found dead at 1 a.m. in his school’s boarding school. Class – SS2, in Hostel, Queen of Holy Innocent Ogwume Secondary School in Ideato lga.
“Beaten, bruised. So many holes in this story. And frankly, I’m sick of these events. Now it has arrived at my doorstep. I urge all media outlets to help shine a light on the events surrounding this event and all other events involving these children that we are confidently giving to schools to care for. It is outrageous.
“No child should have to die, let alone in this way where they are supposed to be safe and cared for. I implore all media and bloggers to please help me to follow this through. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE. MY SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO THE WHOLE FAMILY. #JUSTICEFOROBINNAOBIEFULEH.
