He runs home after he was punished, gathered his friends in a Sprinter Bus, and stormed the school to assault the teacher leaving the teacher with bruises all over his face.
The teacher identified as, Mr Moses Onyameasem, was rescued by his colleagues and rushed to the LEKMA Hospital to seek medical treatment.
After the attack, the mother of the student was also alleged to have besieged the school and rained insults on the teacher.

Meanwhile, the said student and his accomplices are yet to be arrested subsequently arraigned.
