The Nigeria Police of Ughelli Area command has arrested the principal of Government Technical College, Ogor, Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State over the alleged drowning of an SS3 student.
The student, identified as ThankGod Emumirigwe, allegedly drowned in a borrow pit at the school premises.
The student, from the Mechanical Department of the technical school, had died while bathing in the borrow pit after a grass cutting exercise last Friday, October 15.
Sources claimed that:
“The students of the school were doing labour and when they finished working at about 11:am, some of them went to the borrow pit to freshen up”
“As they were bathing, it was discovered that the boy was drowning and some of the students who were with him brought him out and then alerted the school authority. The source alleged that the deceased died on his way to the hospital and was officially confirmed by the hospital management
“The labour master was not around at the time of the incident and the principal resorted to videoing the students, probably thinking that they were pretending.”
“Those present had to go out in search of a tricycle, popularly called keke, to rush the student to a nearby hospital where he was confirmed dead.”
