She wrote in the caption: “This inhuman and degrading treatment was meted out to an SS 3 student of Nigerian Navy Secondary School Abeokuta under the watch of a female Commandant Mrs Jecinta Uche Asetuebube by a Sub Lt Rollins Okoji. When the Commandant was first contacted she denied the video because the victims nickname is NDA but further investigation revealed that this happened sometime before the end of the last term.”

According to a statement by the Nigerian Navy Director of Information, Commodore Suleiman Dahun, the video had been sent to the management of the school by a parent who did not specify when the incident happened or the person involved.
 

Dahun, however, stated that a preliminary investigation had revealed that “the incident took place 2 sessions ago,” adding that it was handled administratively.
