Here are some of the comments that trailed Bovi's statement on his IG page:


"I have such huge respect for the parent of the bullied child, for raising such a fine girl. Some people saw a timid girl. I saw a girl with an extremely commendable self control while standing her ground. She wasn’t crying, she wasn’t begging and regardless of how loud their voices were and how plenty in number they were she didn’t let her head down!"


"Lol. Just like Arsenal, good beginning, poor finishing... Touch my pikin if you nor go say hello to Angel Michael."


"Definitely going to tell my kids that once they give you 1 give them 2!!!"


"She's well trained but should learn to defend herself! That slap was way too much!"


"Everything you said is right. But u see the last paragraph I totally disagree with you boss. That wasn’t even a slap compared to what I was expecting."

"Timidity is not meekness... we should teach our children to stand-up for themselves. You don't need to fight but someone can't slap you one, twice and you stand like you're handicapped... I'm sorry I don't resonate with your perspective, which might be right."


"18 slaps across someone’s child! And we seem to have a problem with one slap given to the culprit. That one slap was too small. We’re not in America."


"The question is who raised these kids turned monsters? How did they become bullies? What happened to them? Parents, need to do better by being so careful how they relate with their staff in front of their kids and how they show kindness as well."


"Good write up... last statement was not needed... wait till they slap your child then you can decide to keep. Mute oga."


"This caption sweet, na just that last line I no too like, that slap suppose reach like saventi saven."
