Nigerians have criticised the excessive use of force on a group of Islamic students at a school in Illorin, Kwara State. A graphic video shows students knelt one after another and violently whipped by 4 other students. In the background, the assailants are being urged on by people assumed to be their teachers.
The video has made rounds on social media and has been condemned by many Nigerians. Popular actor, Charles Inojie described the act as a “brazen display of barbarism.” He called on the Kwara state government to take action and investigate the matter.
