According to Crime Reports, the female corper disciplined about six students, among whom was one Esther Oyeleke, a 14-year-old girl in JSS1. The corper reportedly gave the six students two strokes of cane each on January 24 for playing during teaching period and for not responding when she asked their colleagues to call them.
Surprisingly, the parents of the girl brought her back to the school on January 27 and said the hand on which she was beaten was swollen. With the belief that two strokes of cane could not cause such an injury, the parents were advised to take the girl to the hospital for medical treatment.

From a swollen hand, the girl’s condition deteriorated so much that by January 30, her entire body became swollen, according to information gathered by Crime Reports, and it was then she was taken to one Osoko Maternity Hospital where she was confirmed dead.

Her death reportedly led to a mini protest as the girl’s relations went to the school to disrupt academic activities. When the case was reported at Moniya Division, it was immediately transferred to the State CID for investigations.

In an interview with Crime Reports, the youth corps member, an indigene of a town in Oke Ogun area of Oyo State and a 2012 graduate of a polytechnic, said she believed she was not responsible for the girl’s death and should not be made to suffer unjustly. According to the Office Technology and Management graduate:

“I am one of the corpers deployed to Akingbile Oluana Memorial School, Moniya. I was teaching JSS1 students Basic Science.

On January 24, the students went to play outside the class and I told some of their colleagues to go and call them so that I could mark the attendance for the day. I could not speak loud then because I lost my voice. Some of them responded to my call while others did not. Because of this, I gave the disobedient ones two strokes of cane each on their palms in the classroom.

On January 27, one of them, a female, was brought to the school and I was told that her hand was swollen. I said it could not be because of the caning, as there was even no mark on her palm. As her teacher, I asked her colleagues whether they knew her residence so that I could go and greet her but they said they did not.

On January 30, the principal called me and said that she learnt that the entire body of the girl was swollen. Her family was said to have brought some people who disrupted the activities of the school. The principal said she enquired whether she had been taken to the hospital but the family members replied in the negative. She asked that she should be taken to the hospital.

I was at a meeting of youth corps members when I was called that we should go and pay the girl a visit in the hospital. By the time we got to the hospital, one of the teachers came to me and said she learnt that the student was dead.

On January 1, I went to our coordinator at the local government council before going to the state council of the NYSC to report what happened. I was brought to the State CID by the coordinators and I have been in detention since then.

I am surprised because she was not the only that I gave two strokes of cane. What I know is that whatever is hidden from man is clear before God Almighty. I believe that it was not the strokes of cane that caused the girl’s death. I know I have done nothing wrong and it would not be good to make an innocent person suffer unjustly.”

The police spokesperson in Oyo State, Olabisi Okuwobi-Ilobanafor confirmed the story, when contacted, stating that detectives were still investigating the story. She said that the corpse of the deceased girl had been deposited at the State Hospital, Adeoyo, Ibadan for autopsy.

  1. What has brought criminal charge here? A teacher beat a girl for refusing to honour a lesson. Is it a crime?
    One thing I know is that event will vindicate the corper if the matter was as stated here. May the deceased soul RIP and for the family may God give them the fortitude to bear the loss

  2. Is it only canes that are used for correcting students?,what if that particular student is probably allergic to canning?,or what if all life,she has never been flogged even by her parents. May her soul rest in peace as We await the result of the autopsy.

  3. She’s a demonic student. She will nt rest in peace since she want to put oda pple in trouble. What is
    2 strokes of d cane to a jss1 student.she’s a wicked demonic soul nd will nt find peace.

  4. I don’t believe 2 strokes of cain can kill a 14 yrs old student. Some of these demonic children, when they want to die, they will just look for an excuse to perpetrate their evil plan. May God vindicate you corper. And I pray God to grant the family of the deceased fortitude to bear the loss.

  5. Truth as been lost ever b4 i was… Never relie on any1 cos, NYSC shld b re-define as it as lost her pride. Y NYSC state coordinator n board will jst abandon d corper in Police hand wtout getting her bail, is she not under them, they must b a wicked set of pple, n they shld remember dt they also had children lik this corper, i pray, God shld vindicate this corper n reward NYSC board’s head/coordinator n pple concern according to wht they did to this corper cos of two canning. Better we scrap d NYSC itself as it has even lost its pride

  6. That student is evil. Why is dat she is the only one dat die. The coper shuold believed God for justice she will be free GOD will disagrce the evil one.

  7. When I served in akwaibom last year,I flogged students well cos of their stubborness and yet I was loved cos I made sure my students get d best in class. Jst 2 strokes of cane, its funny. Una beta release dat copa b4 god punish una, see them they wan chop her allowee. Blood suckers

  8. oseburuwa chewekwa umu ya!her case is just a child of circumstance that drinks water and have a hang of it on the teeth; please we corp members and youths are on our kneels begging the people in charge to do some thing on time and bring the poor girl out from that solitary. For I wonder why parents of such Abiku will get from making trouble of such a matter,knowing fully well that the child was evil incarnate and will rot in hell

  9. The police should carry out outopsy report to determine the actual cause of the girl,s death.For them not to punish an innocent youth corper
