“A student from Reverend Kuti Memorial Grammar School, Abeokuta, had a fracas with some of her classmates and she was seriously beaten by three or four of them. They threatened her not to inform anyone about the incident. After the beating, she fell sick and was taken to FMC Abeokuta, where she was undergoing treatment. I think after about three days, she revealed what happened to her parents. Sadly, not quite long after the revelation, she gave up the ghost and the parents came to the station to report.
“The police are on top of the situation. Investigations have commenced. Those she mentioned when she was about to give up have been apprehended. The required medical report that’s needed has been applied for and once we can set up that she died because of the beating, the case might be charged to court,” Oyeyemi stated.
