The kicker is, the beating was requested by her own father. The below video shows the girl kneeling on the floor at a Nigerian Islamic school while being whipped by four teachers as her father approvingly looked on.
Daily Mail The men then proceed to brutally whip the student while onlookers watch and she can be seen raising her hands in repeated attempts to protect herself from the onslaught which is so violent her hijab appears to fall off.
The father of the student told BBC Pidgen he had approved the whippings after becoming upset when he saw a video of his daughter allegedly drinking alcohol. The girl was reportedly one of four male and female students caught drinking alcohol at a birthday party, which they denied.
He said: ‘I informed the school about the incident and I personally requested them to give her the appropriate punishment, and I insisted I should be present when they carried it out.’
The school also said the punishment was in line with Islamic law. In a statement, the local government said an investigation has been launched and would be overseen by a panel ‘comprising of Muslim scholars, leaders and government officials’.
