 - The 8-year-old pupil, Henry Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, who was beaten to coma by a teacher in Anambra State has passed away. 

Sources reported that the 30-year-old teacher at Landmark School Mgbakwu in Awka North Local Government Area of the state, Faith Nwonye, was arrested last weekend. 

The State Commissioner for Education, Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, confirmed the sad development on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

“A quack teacher in an illegal school bludgeoned him to death. We mourn a life nipped in the bud! We mourn Henry Chukwuemeka Okonkwo! We mourn and we seek justice!”
