The FCT Police Command has deployed its officers to the Lead British International School, Abuja, following viral videos showing bullying of students.

Spokesman of the Command, SP Josephine Adeh said in a statement that the deployment was a proactive response to the alarm raised by some members of the public regarding videos circulating on social media showing the bullying of a student at the school.

The police spokesperson added that the Abuja command was on top of the situation.

She said, “The FCT Police Command is on top of the situation and has deployed seasoned officers to the school premises for investigations and to forestall any possible breakdown of law and order.”

Another video has surfaced on social media depicting a separate case of bullying at the Lead British International School, posted on Tuesday.

The video showed some male students in the school’s uniform surrounding another boy who appeared to be in casual attire.

A student slapped the boy who was on his knees. Some other boys who were gathered appealed to stop the ‘bully’ from further harming the boy, who was later taken away.
