"It Was Out Of Anger" - Principal Who Flogged Female Corper Apologizes

The Principal-General of Government Technical College, Abak, Akwa Ibom State, Mr Friday Udoka, who reportedly flogged a serving female corp member, Miss Olaitan Adeola Kolawole has apologized.

While tendering his apology at the NYSC state office in Uyo on Monday, the principal who noted that he did not deliberately flog the corps member said he used the cane on her out of anger after she wrote the name of her friend, Dolapo Victoria in the attendance register of the school on Friday, 19th of October, 2018 when Dolapo was absent.

It was earlier reported that the principal who has just three years to retire from service was said to have flogged Kolawole for her action and dragged her outside the classroom in front of the students; an allegation he denied saying;

“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.

“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.

While responding, Miss Kolawole who disclosed that she had no justification not to accept the apology of an elder sais;

“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”.

While the Commissioner for Education in the state, Victor Inoka, who was also at the ‘reconciliation meeting’, reportedly made a personal donation of N50,000 to Miss Kolawole for her treatment.
