Two female students of the University of Port-Harcourt, Choba, Rivers State, department of Linguistics and Communication Studies, faculty of Humanities, were flogged on Friday, Sept 21,2012, for gallivanting while class was going on.
The dean of the faculty, Prof O. M. Ndimele, flogged the two female
students, while having LCS 100, with the 100 level LCS students, at the
Convocation Arena of the school.
We have heard previous reports of Undergraduates flogged or asked to ‘Kneel down’ in schools like Convenant & others.
Although the incident has come and gone, one question that would last
for quite a while is “why should a university student be flogged?”
