Mrs. Kalla Yuwana, a school principal of Junior Secondary School (JSS) in the Kuje area of Abuja, on Tuesday allegedly slapped a colleague identified as Malam Musa Suleiman, as other teachers protested in the school.
Speaking to a correspondent under the condition of anonymity, one of the teachers, 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.
According to DailyTrust newspaper, 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, adding that when the teacher refused to kneel down, the principal allegedly slapped him twice.
He said an attempt later by the teacher to apologise to the principal at her residence at about 7:00p.m., ended up in humiliation as the principal walked him out of her house.
It was further gathered that other teachers who came to school the following morning got wind of the incident and later converged at the administrative block of the school to protest against the alleged assault on their colleague.
