Dowen College: ‘Mummy They Hit Me And Locked Me Inside A Cupboard For Two Days’ — Sylvester Last Words Before He Died





NPC Recruitment portal 2022 for Adhoc Staff, Requirements, Closing Date




When Chidalu came back home from school after his first term, he was a different version of himself. Chidalu my twelve years old chubby and extrovert son became a lean and withdrawn child. He jerks at little sounds and didn’t talk much,he also ate food like one who was being chased.



I kept asking him what was wrong but Chidalu didn’t divulge, he just shakes his head in the negative and mutter a silent no laced with fear. I told my husband and he too tried to make our son talk,we bought him things,even a bicycle that he loves most but he didn’t say anything.

“He’s still adapting to boarding school life, don’t worry he will get used to it soon, don’t you see his over playfulness has reduced?” a friend of mine told me when I complained about him at the women’s meeting. A day to their resumption date,Chidalu came to me and said something.


“Mummy can you talk to daddy to change my school?” That was the longest thing he had said for the three weeks he has been at home. I dropped the clothes that I was arranging in his box and faced him.


“Chi why do you want to change school?”

He stared at me then bent his face to stare at his legs. “Nothing mummy, don’t worry I’ll not change school again” he said and walked away.

I wish I had listened to him. Oh I wish!!

Me and my husband dropped him at school the next day and I can’t forget the gloomy look he had on his face. Yesterday we got a call to come to the school that Chidalu was sick. They said he fell down while playing games.


But my son that I saw when we got to school didn’t look like who fell. Chidalu’s hands,face and legs was swollen and he kept writhing in pains. “What happened to my son?!” My husband shouted at the principal who kept insisting he fell down.



My son could no longer talk as his lips were injured having deep cuts on them. We immediately took him away from school to a hospital in town where tests were carried out and we were waiting for results.

“Mummy they hit me and locked me inside a cupboard for two days” Chidalu muttered to me silently when it was just I and his dad in the ward.My heart flew and his dad had his eyes opened wide.


“Who are they?” He asked Chidalu.

“They said they will kill me,they always eat all my provisions and takes my boxers and singlets,they gave me Fayrouz to take forcefully then beat me” I was already crying and boiling.

My husband immediately began calling the police,he called the principal who hung up the call on him.


You must get justice bro😭😭

May your soul rest in peace 🙏😢


  1. The parents here have partially failed. You have to listen to your children and read their body language. And what’s all this craze about spending millions to have kids locked up in a hostel away from you the parents, I have never bought that idea. All children should come back home to their parents and have dinner together in the evening, and tell the parents how their day went. That’s my definition of parenting. soon the children will be grown up and you’ll be begging to see them around. So you’ll have all the time you need for yourself then. The school is either very careless or understaffed. Children need surveillance on a round the clock basis. May his soul rest in peace.
