Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson recently featured in a comedy skit with her first daughter Purity. The video was to teach school authorities that children shouldn't be punished for their parents' shortcomings.
In the video shared online, Mercy arrived at her daughter's school after she was informed that the child was beaten by her class teacher due to nonpayment of her school fees.
According to Purity, her headteacher ordered that she should be flogged.
The head teacher who was played by comedian Zicsaloma told Mercy that it was not a big deal flogging her kids. According to him, it is done in other schools.
While the actress tried to convince Zicsaloma that kids shouldn't be punished for their parent's responsibilities, the comedian insisted that if the kids are not beaten, their parents won't see the need to quickly pay.
Mercy told her daughter to wait for her in the car and then locked the head teacher's office before beating him to stupor.

The video got Nigerians hailing the actress for the action she took against the headteacher.
Below are some comments:
"I remember going through this flogging experience by my principal when I was growing up and I didn’t have anyone to fight for me as Mercy did. instead, my parents said it was part of the learning process, which was actually their fault for not paying my fees on time."
"This is a serious issue, thank you mercy. it's so unfair. A lot of schools do this, and it's wrong!"
"I love this new combo. It’s the walk from the office after flogging the hell out of her for me."
"Thanks for putting this skit out. I wish some school authorities will see this...Those innocent kids don't have to go through such treatment."
