Faith Nwonye, a 30-year-old teacher at Landmark School Mgbakwu in the Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State, has been placed under arrest on suspicion of putting a student, age 8, into a coma by hitting her.

The school has been permanently shuttered, according to state commissioner of education Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, who made this announcement while briefing reporters in her office. Chuma-Udeh reported that she had called Nwonye and the owner of the school to explain the events leading up to the elementary student’s severe beating.

“We’ve handed the matter to the police for further investigations, as we await Mr Governor’s directives. Meanwhile, the school is closed down indefinitely because it’s not supposed to exist in the first instance. Any parent who is enrolling his/her child in an illegal school is doing so at his/her own peril. To the proprietors of private schools, anyone running an unapproved school in Anambra is a criminal. It’s a criminal offence to run an illegal school in the state whether the school is legal or not, it’s criminal to beat a child. According to the doctor, the chances of survival of the child is 20%.”

The commissioner added that the teacher would be brought to book.

“As soon as the police are done, the teacher will face other institutions against child rights. She’s going to have the full wrath of the law brought upon her over her actions,” she said.

“Anambra state abhors violence to children, women, and any other person. It’s not part of this administration and Mr. Governor is against such.”
