Teachers protest as principal slaps colleague in Kuje
Teachers of Junior Secondary School (JSS) Kuje, on Tuesday protested in the school after the principal, Mrs. Kalla Yuwana, allegedly slapped their colleague, Malam Musa Suleiman.
One of the teachers, who spoke to our reporter under condition of anonymity, said the incident happened on Monday evening after school hours.
He said the teacher, who was a level 12 staff, took permission from the vice principal of the school to take four students to assist him to arrange for their inter-house sports competition at the Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS), in the area.
He said the teacher and students did not return until around 5.00p.m. and that by then one of the parents of the students had phoned the principal and complained that he was yet to see his child at home.
The source said the principal immediately phoned the teacher to meet her in school and that when he came, she asked him to kneel down.
He said when the teacher refused to kneel down, the principal allegedly slapped him twice.
