Anger Over Viral Video of Student being Bullied in Abuja School

Punch Newspaper

An X user, @mooyeeeeeee, is seeking justice for a female student of Lead British International School, Abuja, who she said was bullied by her classmates.

In an SOS post on Monday night, accompanied by two videos, she stated she needed the message to go viral to get justice for the victim.

“There’s a video I’m about to post. I need you guys to help me get justice for (sic). She was bullied in her school by her classmates at Lead British School, Abuja. Pls make it go viral so she can get justice,” the post read.

In one of the videos, the victim was seen being slapped repeatedly by another female student while asking “Who broke my heart?”.

In another video, the victim was seen sitting next to a male classmate who was heard saying “I spoilt her relationship”.

The post has since generated over 1,000 comments as of the time of filling this report.

Those who reacted condemned the incident, calling on the school authorities to investigate the matter.

An X user, @knownso1 said, “This is so sad to watch, don’t care what happened but she’s doesn’t deserve such treatment from these rascals.

“Imagine the nonsensical boy beside her even laughing. Them suppose mend that boy. But she could at least fight back and don’t allow them treat her like a coward!!”

Another user, @Lefter_11, advised that the victims’ parents should report the incident to the police.

“Her parents should involve police and also report those children to school authorities. Some of us that went to public schools will not care to let our parents know that someone bullied or beat us , we go just arrange some friends and treat them in the language they understand,” he said

Meanwhile, another X user, @sadiqGsadiq, posted a screenshot where it was alleged that the school has a bullying problem.

The untitled screenshot also alleged that another student of the school cut her classmate with a knife but was only given a two-day suspension.


“Bullying is one of the biggest issue in Lead British international school.

“And the worst thing is that they don’t even take serious actions for it. The punishment they use is always packing of trash like…does that make sense? Will packing of trash stop me from bullying someone?it does not even make sense, to be honest.

“The school is always trying to hide things like this. When things like this happen and we tell our parents, our parents think we are being dramatic and stuff that’s why we all need you to put back the post and bring awareness cuz it needs to stop.

“When I told my mom, she said I was lying. It was when I showed her the video that she believed me sef
“Let me tell you something, worst things have happened. There was a time a girl brought a knife or a paper cutter and used it to slice a boy’s hand. The boy was in Year 7. He had to get stitches and the girl’s punishment was two days suspension cuz allegedly her parents paid the school or something,” the screenshot read.

The school has yet to respond officially to the incident as of the time of filling this report.

The Head, Corporate Affairs and Business Development (Abuja branch), Ngozi Nwaokoma, did not also respond to the messages dropped on her phone.

Meanwhile, a check on the school showed it is rated as one of the most expensive in Nigeria with an annual school fee of N1.5 million according to Legit News.

It was established in September 2007 and currently has two annexes in Abuja and two branches in Ibadan, Oyo State and Osogbo, Osun State.

Presently, the Abuja branch runs a British-Nigerian curriculum with its scope on Secondary, Cambridge and IGSCE.
