Pupil, 8, Dies After Going Into Coma From Teacher’s Caning In Anambra

An eight-year-old pupil, Henry Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, who went into coma after being beaten by a teacher in Anambra State, has died.

The 30-year-old teacher at Landmark School Mgbakwu in Awka North Local Government Area of the state, Faith Nwonye, was arrested last weekend.

Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, confirmed the boy’s death on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

“He was a boy…like any other, with hopes and aspirations. He went to school for a better future but met gruesome death at the hands of the people who were supposed to help him achieve his life ambition,” the Commissioner stated.

“A quack teacher in an illegal school bludgeoned him to death. We mourn a life nipped in the bud! We mourn Henry Chukwuemeka Okonkwo! We mourn and we seek justice!”
