The management of the Bamidele Olumilua University of Education Science and Technology Ikere-Ekiti (BOUESTI) has begun a probe into a viral video of a female student flogging her colleague.


On Monday, a clip circulated on X which captured the student flogging her colleague with a cane while shouting at her.

In the footage, the perpetrator is heard screaming at the victim, saying: “I want to see you fight back. You called me a bastard? Is it because I have kept silent? I must draw blood from you today and no one can stop me”.

The victim is also seen running to safety while being chased by her attacker.


The video also captured several individuals present during the assault, yet no one attempted to intervene.

The footage has sparked a chorus of condemnation on social media, with users calling on the institution to investigate the incident.

Speaking on the matter, Tope Akinbisoye, the varsity’s spokesperson, said the students in the viral video were summoned by the school disciplinary panel on Monday.


Akinbisoye revealed that the school management is awaiting the outcome of the panel’s meeting to determine the appropriate sanction.

“The school is aware. They faced the students’ disciplinary panel yesterday. We await the decision of the committee probably today. And we will issue an official statement. All of them involved faced the panel,” he told TheCable Lifestyle on Tuesday.
