Police Arrest Delta Man For Flogging Daughter's Teacher To Death


Delta State Police Command, yesterday, paraded one Mr. Nnajiofor Nweke, for allegedly flogging a teacher to death in Alihame Mixed Secondary School, Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of the state.

Nweke was alleged to have committed the offence in retaliation for the disciplinary action against his son.

The deceased, Mr. Sunday Ufua, was until his death, a physics teacher in the school.

Parading the suspect, Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Bright Edafe said “On 18th October 2023, at about 9 am , one Nnajiofor Nweke, father to one Emmanuel Nweke went to Alihame Mixed Secondary School, Agbor where his child schools.

“The suspect went to the school premises aggressively in search of one of the school teachers over a punishment meted to his son at the school.

“The suspect on sighting the said teacher picked a cane in the school and started flogging him during which another teacher one Ufah Sunday while trying to mediate and stop him slumped and was rushed to central hospital where he was confirmed dead by the doctor.

“Suspect is currently in custody and investigation is ongoing.”

Speaking with newsmen on the allegation, Nweke, a 44 years old butcher, denied flogging the deceased teacher, claiming that he was only in the school premises when the man slumped.

He said he had gone to the school after he was informed that his son, a 12 year old JSS 2 student was flogged by a teacher, saying “On getting to the school, l asked what my son did that they could not invite me to the school.”

He said one of the teachers said his son went to the bush to drink palm wine and he called him a useless father who could not control his children and would leave them to go and steal.

“As l carried a cane that was on the table to flog him, one of the teachers advised that l should wait for the Principal to report the matter to him. At that time, it was getting to the time of my business, so l went out.

“Later, my daughter called and said that the teacher that used to look after them had slumped and l rushed back.”
