Punch reported that the parents withdrew the girl from the school over the alleged indifference of the management to the incident that almost claimed her life.

It was also reported that the family members of the poison victim were furious with the perceived poor handling of the case by the management of the Lekki British International School.

Though an official of the school reportedly said the 12-year-old involved in the incident had been expelled from the school and referred for psychological and psychiatric tests, the family believes the measures are coming rather too late if truly the school took such measures.

Those privy to the unfortunate incident narrated that a 12-year-old Junior Secondary School I pupil was envious of the 11-year-old classmate, who had beaten him to the first position during the first and second terms.

To ensure the 11-year-old doesn't come first again, the 12-year-old had allegedly sneaked into the school laboratory and mixed sulphuric acid and ethanol which he poured into the 11-year-old's water bottle.

The management of the Lekki British International School is yet to respond to the allegation levelled by the concerned party.
