A school principal and two others have been arrested in south-western Nigeria for allegedly tying two students to a cross and whipping them for being late.

The punishment was barbaric, and would not be tolerated, Ogun state police spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said.

He confirmed the arrest of the principal, proprietor, usually a reference to the school owner or deputy principal, and a teacher.


A policeman who saw the children being flogged with horsewhips on a cross tried to intervene but was allegedly attacked by the proprietor of the privately owned Metorite Standard School.

The policeman called for back-up and got the proprietor arrested.

A picture of one of the victims has been posted on Twitter:
