- A schoolboy has been captured in a video as he wore eight different shirts under his uniform to school
- This is thought to be a strategy to make sure he does not feel the sting of the cane
- He was asked to remove all the shirts which later looked like an emptied wardrobe on the floor
A young boy who appears to be in primary school has been captured on camera removing eight different shirts he wore to protect himself against lashes in school.
In the video that was sighted by Legit.ng on Twitter after it was shared by @iamtemmytea, there was an indication that the young boy had probably gone to school late or failed to perform an assignment.
He was asked to remove all the shirts and by the time he was done, it looked as though he had emptied his entire wardrobe onto the floor in the classroom.
See the video below:
Many social media users who saw the video could not help but comment on it.
"This guy suppose chop better beating for break time. Because he’s shining his teeth and doing what they didn’t send him. oversabi."
@Maker2creative spoke in the boy's defence:
"I don't think we should blame the poor boy....so many things would actually triggered his action ....but its actually lack of parental care that he lacked and its caused by bad Government......#poorgovernment #badgovernment."
"One of the things I didn't do in school, I no dey get the energy. The day I managed wearing cartoon on my bombom, teacher forgave us."
Viral video of Nigerian student cramming for bar exams under a running shower sparks massive reactions
In a previous report by Legit.ng, social media users buzzed with amusement over a video of a little girl identified as Bridget Bema who became an internet sensation.
In the video, the teacher could be seen calling out the names of pupils who had committed offences in one way or the other.
In each of the lists which included noisemakers, latecomers, bullies, little Bridget's name popped up much to the bewilderment of the teacher.
