Following the emergence of a disturbing viral video depicting the bullying of a female student by her classmates at the Lead British International School in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, police authorities have initiated an investigation into the matter.

The video, which circulated widely on social media early Tuesday, ignited public outrage and calls for justice for the victim.


In response, the FCT Police Command has deployed officers to the school to maintain law and order and conduct thorough investigations.

Josephine Adeh, spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, confirmed the commencement of investigations and the deployment of officers to the school premises.

She assured the public of the police’s proactive response to the alarming situation.

In a significant development, two ministers, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye of Women Affairs and Tahir Mamman of Education, visited the school on Tuesday afternoon to address the issue.

Kennedy-Ohanenye announced that investigations into the incident have been opened, and the school has been closed for three days to facilitate the probe, with the possibility of extension if necessary.

Furthermore, the education minister held a closed-door meeting with the school management, indicating a concerted effort to address the situation and ensure accountability.

The disturbing video captured one student repeatedly slapping another while uttering inflammatory remarks, highlighting the gravity of the bullying incident.

Despite being denied access to the school premises, students at the gate revealed that bullying has been an ongoing concern at the institution, with complaints to the management yielding no tangible resolution.

Responding to the outcry, the school management released a statement on Facebook, acknowledging the incident and pledging to conduct a thorough investigation.

The management assured the public of their commitment to addressing the behavior of the perpetrators through counseling and disciplinary measures.

Meanwhile, the video has sparked widespread outrage on various social media platforms, with users demanding justice for the victim and advocating for measures to prevent future occurrences of bullying in schools.
