An 11-year-old female pupil,
who escaped being killed by her 12-year-old classmate, have been
reportedly withdrawn from the Lekki British International School, Lekki,
Lagos State. 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 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.
