The Lead British International School in Abuja has announced a temporary closure as it conducts an investigation into an alleged bullying incident involving its students.

The decision comes after disturbing videos surfaced on social media on Monday, depicting a student being slapped by a fellow student within the school premises.

In the videos, the teenage girl is surrounded by uniformed colleague students while a female among them is dealing her smacks on the face.

The students are then heard making such comments as “Who broke my heart” and “I spoilt her relationship” within the school premises.

The development has attracted a chorus of condemnation on social media, with Nigerians demanding that measures be taken to punish the culprit.

In response to the incident, the school management issued a statement on Tuesday, confirming that an investigation into the matter had been initiated.

As part of the ongoing inquiry, the management made the decision to temporarily close the school for a duration of three days.

The announcement of the closure was made by a school representative, who was joined by the Minister for Women’s Affairs, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye during the public address.

“We respect rules and regulations and we are under the law. Because our school is recognised and it is under the federal capital territory and we are registered. And based on that Lead British International School, Abuja is hereby shut for three days,” he said.

The Abuja police spokesperson, Josephine Adeh also disclosed that seasoned officers have been deployed to the school for investigations and to avoid a possible breakdown of law and order.

“In a proactive response to alarms raised by some members of the public regarding videos circulating on social media depicting the bullying of students at the above mentioned school, the FCT Police Command is on top of the situation and has deployed seasoned officers to the school premises for investigations and to forestall any possible breakdown of law and order,” reads the post shared on X.
