A student of Command Secondary School Enugu has been allegedly flogged to death by a yet to be identified soldier for having bushy hair.
The mother broke the news in a Facebook post on the Nkanu People of Enugu State Nigeria platform with pictures of the deceased showing a swollen eye and head before his demise.
Sources confirmed to SaharaReporters that the boy’s head started swelling, causing the parents to move him from one hospital to another until his untimely death.
The mother of the deceased, Adaeze Chibuzo, on her Facebook page, wrote; “It is still very hard to believe that you are gone my son but one thing I know is that God will surely fight for us, rest in peace my son.
“Army man flogged my son in school to death in command sec, sch enugu. Rip my first fruit in life.”
