Edafe confirmed that the victim died on Saturday.

He said: “We have the suspect who is the son of the owner of the school in our custody. He is a teacher in the school.

“But I wonder how a teacher would flog a pupil 31 strokes of the cane. I am only hearing from the media that it was 31 strokes of the cane.

“The question is was anybody there to count the strokes while the flogging was on?”
