Did you read about a 12 year old child who wanted to kill his classmate with acid because she became a competition for him?
Well, I thought it happened in the US but I was wrong. It happened in Lekki British International School here in Lagos.
Here is an update from the victim’s aunt. Sadly, the school is protecting the potential murderer and threatening the victim.
“Hmmm…good morning parents..I will come back on
this matter of the 12year old who attempted to kill his classmate with a
broader perspective..deeper than this parent just analysed. The child
in question is my niece…been following the trend of events since the
incident precisely on Wednesday 14th June 2017 at about 1.30pm. It will
amaze you that the school in question still has the boy in school…no
mental case assessment, he was allowed to write the very same exams he
had tactfully planned on executing his classmate for so dat she doesn’t
take the first position again , sitting right in the same classroom! He
had stolen from the lab sulphuric acid and ethanol and mixed both into
the girl’s water bottle for her to drink after lunch. When asked, he
said he had been planning this since second term..his first plot had
been to put feces gradually on a daily basis into her screwed bottle
juice that she usually came to school with. But with God’s invention, on
his first day of that plot, she didn’t come to school with that screw
top juice..so he changed the plan.
After this incidence..upon enquiry, the girl’s mother was told that
he was to resume a mere one week suspension next week after exams are
over on Friday which is tomorrow..she insisted that the punishment would
only have reinforced the boy…as they should have started from expulsion
and maybe work it down to a term’s suspension after proper evaluation
of d boy’s mental state(if the school still thought it was necessary to
retain such an evil mind in the school that is). However, to her
greatest shock..the owner of the school cornered her daughter to coerce
her to write a false statement that she provoked the boy to such an evil
act!!!! How evil can one get?!!!!
That the boy looked really innocent..so hence the victim as always
in Nigeria has become the culprit! Simply because she still wants to
count her money in millions as school fees???!!!! What more does a pupil
have to do to get expelled from such a prestigious school or any school
Should a murder have to take place first? If he actually had
succeeded in his carefully calculated plans..of which he had a list of
other intelligent kids he planned to kill after he succeeds in dis one! A
set of parents would have been left without their very brilliant
daughter had God not rescued the situation through the intervention of
the two boys that caught him in the act. And such a child is still
walking d school as I speak to you boldly whilst the victim can no
longer drink anything in d school for fear of being poisoned.
To correct the view of the initial writer..and this only makes it
worse..the kids are in Js1!! The girl joined them after a few weeks in
first term..so he had only been opportune to have a glimpse of the first
place in the continuous assessment tests before she came along and made
first place first and second term in a row, hence this plot to kill her
before third term exams begins.
One would think that the school authorities will be very concerned
about what is going on in the mind of this child and immediately remand
him to psychological and psychiatric help! But alas the parent of the
victim is being accused by the school management of wanting to destroy
the life of the boy by asking that he be expelled and made to write an
An apology came after one week of the incidence after it was
vehemently demanded for. I am appalled at the rot and decay of any form
of value system that has exhumed from one of Nigeria’s supposed best
schools..Lekki British International School.”
Here is an update from from the case this morning;
on the acid poisoning matter , the school authority said they had
expelled the boy but the family of the girl insist that the boy was
still in school as at the time they broke the news.
According to the aunt, the little girl was coerced to write a false
statement and the school owner asked the girl and her mum to get out of
This expulsion story , according to the aunt is damage control done by the school after the story went viral.
