School Teacher Blinds Female Student With Broom

For daring to fail a Mathematics test, 10 years old Blessing Okaeben was given the beating of her life by her teacher, one Mrs. Mercy Monday.  The ugly incident which occurred at a primary School in Benin, Edo State, has attracted condemnation from well-meaning individuals.

Narrating her ordeal in the hands of her wicked teacher, the little girl said Mrs. Monday used a cane on her until it turned to shreds after which she resorted to using a bunch of broomsticks, hitting her on the head, face and others parts of the body.  She added that the teacher did not stop at just beating her but kept calling her a witch until she hit her in the right eye.

The second day, the victim’s mother reported the matter to the school authorities. Mrs. Monday was compelled to take little Blessing to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital where a broken piece of broomstick was removed from her injured eye. After then the girl's condition got worse but the teacher said she would no longer be responsible for the treatment, claiming she is pregnant and need money to take care of her unborn baby.

Due to lack of assistance from anywhere, the little girl lost use of the injured eye.  We hear that her parent have consulted a lawyer to help them seek redress on the issue. The lawyer has even written a petition to Governor Adams Oshiomhole, asking for adequate compensation... This is nothing but a clear case of man's inhumanity to man. What a cruel and heartless teacher!
