A 12-yeaar-old Student from the Junior Secondary School category of Lekki British International School, Lekki, Lagos, has been expelled for putting sulphuric acid and ethanol in the water bottle of his classmate.
It was gathered that the student was envious of his classmate, who had beaten him to the first position in the first and second terms. It was when the school was preparing for the third term exams that the student reportedly sneaked into the laboratory and took the acid and ethanol, and then he mixed the chemicals and poured it into the water bottle
Two pupils caught him in the act and reported to the school management, and it was stated that the student owned up to the crime, explaining that he has been planning it for a while. A member of the victim’s family said that despite his confession, he sat for the third term exams.
One of the officials in the school management stated that the student has been expelled, they have zero tolerance for such misbehaviors, and the victim is fine and in school.
