JSS 1 student flogged and suspended for indecent hairstyle files N15m lawsuit against Ekiti state government

Gift Agenoisa, a JSS 1 student who claims to have been picked out during her school’s assembly on May 22 and given 20 lashes over an “indecent hairstyle” on the order of the principal who also suspended her, has filed a lawsuit against Ekiti state government.

The student of Immaculate Secondary School, Ado-Ekiti, claimed her suspension infringed on her rights.

The student who approached an Ado-Ekiti  High Court through her mother Odunayo Agenoisa, is seeking N15 million in damages for breach of her “fundamental rights” and an immediate reinstatement to school with unfettered access to all services.

The school principal, Oluwasanmi F.M, the education commissioner Olabimpe Aderiye, Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission and Ekiti state government are joined as defendants in the case.

The student who claimed she had bruises, life-threatening scars and bloodstains on her uniform, added that she fainted and was rushed to the police clinic in Ado- Ekiti where she was resuscitated.

Agenoisa filed the lawsuit after her letters of protest to the wife of Ekiti Governor and some relevant government agencies were not responded to.
