A 12 year old Junior Secondary School 1 student of Lekki British International School (on Victoria Island, Lagos) who attempted to poison his classmate over grades has reportedly been expelled.
The boy had filled the 11 year old girl’s water bottle with sulphuric acid and ethanol because she beat him to the first position in first and second terms.
He was caught by two other students on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, as he filled the bottle with the deadly substances.
Here are more clarifications in the bizarre scenario difficult to comprehend as compiled by encomium.ng:
1. The boy prepared the poison in the school laboratory.
2. The third term examination was around the corner as the evil deed was being concocted.
3. The boy admitted the plot, and confirmed he was envious of her brilliance.
4. The boy was initially protected by the school, and allowed to take the third term exams.
But outrage led to the suspension of the culprit.
