In a shocking incident that has garnered attention on social media, a female undergraduate from Bamidele Olumilua University of Education Science and Technology, Ikere in Ekiti State, was captured on video brutally beating a fellow student with a stick. The disturbing footage shows the bully relentlessly attacking the victim, disregarding her pleas for mercy.

The video, which surfaced on social media on the same day as the incident, has sparked outrage among viewers. The witness who filmed the video claimed that the assault took place on the campus of BOUESTI. The victim has been identified as Ajayi Precious Gloria, while the perpetrator is said to be a “very popular” Mass Communication student.

What is even more distressing is that while the assault was taking place, several individuals were present, yet none of them intervened to stop the attack. The motive behind the assault is still unknown.

This incident is a stark reminder of the prevalence of bullying in educational institutions. It echoes previous cases such as the viral video of a female student being bullied at Lead British International School, Abuja, and another video involving male students in the school’s uniform. These incidents highlight the urgent need for measures to address and prevent bullying in schools.

The circulation of such videos on social media has sparked public outcry, with many calling for the suspension and disciplinary action against the perpetrators. The impact of bullying on victims can be devastating, leading to long-term psychological and emotional trauma. It is crucial for educational institutions to take proactive steps to create safe and inclusive environments for all students.

The video serves as a reminder that bullying is a serious issue that requires immediate attention and action. It is our collective responsibility to stand against bullying and create a culture of respect and empathy in our educational institutions.
