I have followed the story closely…Though the DSS has another version of the story, the preponderance of evidence shows that the school was invaded by DSS operatives to protest the flogging of a child…

If this story is finally fully established to be as the school has told it. I must say it is a violation of the sacredness of the educational sector…It is purely JUNGLE JUSTICE…It is a scary gravitation back to the STATE OF NATURE, where LIFE was BRUTISH, NASTY and SHORT…It is worse when the alleged attack is carried out by security operatives, charged by law to maintain LAW and ORDER in the society…Again when did DSS become the police, saddled with constitutional responsibility to protect life and property of the people?

You don’t invade a school with children there, shot over 15 times, hit teachers heads with the head of the gun, cart away their phones and monies, shoot your way out of the school!! Children are not even save in this kind of environment…How would the teachers allegedly thoroughly disgraced in the presence of the students ever command respect requisite for their effective dissemination of knowledge to the children?

Haba you don’t…Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, says Martin Luther King Jnr. Every one who is interested in the sanctity and sanity of the educational sector in Nigeria must call for a full scale investigation of this bizarre case, establish the truth and bring all culprits to book…

While as a Subject Matter Expert in Child Protection, I do not subscribe to any form of corporal punishment because it has been found to be often abused within the school system and it is found by research not to be effective and there are policies in most states and federal government schools against corporal punishment, except it is guided by the Head of School or Principal, I believe this alleged invasion is not still justifiable on any civilized ground…

Law and Order must not be sacrificed on the altar of JUNGLE JUSTICE…As matter of fact history has established that JUNGLE JUSTICE doesn’t achieve any remedy but only compound injustice and often punish the innocent..JUNGLE JUSTICE is what I call the JUSTICE of the MOB…And the MOB is said to be without conscience…

Great damage has been done by this alleged invasion and remedy and justice must be pursued by all…I rest my case, yet very disturbed! May God help our dearly beloved country Nigeria…Amen!!!

Remember Enlightenment is Superior to Enforcement. I charge you to Think the CHILD…Think the FAMILY…Think TODAY…Think the FUTURE…
