A Junior Secondary School (JSS) 1 student of the Dennis Memorial Grammar School Onitsha, Anambra State, was on Tuesday allegedly stoned to death by one of his classmates.
A Facebook user, Mizta Nnamdi, who shared the sad news on his wall, said the deceased was a super intelligent student.
Narrating the story, Mizta said: “This is Emmanuel Chukwuebuka Nnanna, a JSS 1 student at Dennis Memorial Grammar School Onitsha, a native of Oburo Ogwa in Mbaitoli LGA, Imo state.
“He died on Tuesday 12th February 2019 by a large stone thrown to crush his head from the school dormitory window by his fellow envious student.
“This happened after school hours, the victim was said to (have) finished eating in the school cafeteria, fetched water with his gallon kept the water in his corner and came outside to play football. He met two students playing football, asked if he can join them and the two boys playing the football told him to wait as they were playing in turns.
“While waiting and watching them a mischievous student carried a large stone they used to hold the dormitory door, targeted the victim from upstairs and hit the large stone on his head.
“The victim fell down immediately and become unconscious. The two boys playing the football carried him to the school clinic, there was no equipment to handle his case there so one of the clinic attendance carried him out the school gate and started looking for keke, he got one took him to general hospital Onitsha where no treatment was given to him. They later took him to Iyi Enu General Hospital when he had already bled to death.”
According to Mizta, while all that was going on, they did not contact his father or any member of his family.
He noted that Kanayo Hospital and other private hospitals are of close proximity to DMGS but rather than take the boy there due to the urgency of his case, they took him to far away Iyi Enu General Hospital because it is an Anglican hospital.
“Just like that an innocent boy that lost his mother when he was only three years, a super intelligent boy with multiple talents died because of his fellow students envy and school management carelessness,” Mizta wrote.
Efforts to reach the school management for reaction failed as none of the management staff was available.
When our reporter visited Central Police Station, Onitsha, police operatives at the station said they heard the story but were yet to receive any official report.
