I flogged her out of Anger, Principal apologies to NYSC
The Principal of Government Technical College, Abak, Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Friday Udoka who assaulted a corp member, Miss Olaitan Adeola Kolawole has apologized.
Udoka tendered the apology during a reconciliatory meeting which was witnessed by Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Education, Prof Victor Inoka.
Regretting his actions, Udoka noted that he has never beaten any corps member before and pleaded with the Corp member to forgive him
“No man is perfect, I have not beaten a corps member before. I am very sorry for using a cane on a corper. Adeola, I am very sorry for what happened” he noted
“When I went back home, I felt bad for beating a woman. It is not true that I dragged the corper out of my office and flogged her before the students. This is a man that behaves like a father, but I don’t know what happened that I behaved rudely with you. Please forgive me.
“The mistake will not repeat itself. Whatever is the cost of your treatment, I will bear the cost” he added.
The corp member accepted the apology and promised to talk to her parents to forget about taking up the matter in court.
“For an elder to apologize for his mistake, I forgive him. I accept his apology. My parents wanted to take up the matter, but I will talk to them not to pursue the case as they wanted” she stated.
