His caption read, "It gives me great joy to know that we still have well-raised children in Nigeria. Children who are soft, meek and civil. Children who under the deadliest of provocation still keep their calm. Though the girl in question may have been afraid, she didn’t coil, she didn’t whimper. She didn’t beg. I admire her."

Bovi also emphasised the importance of counselling for the bully to trace the source of her trauma.

"However, it is left for the authorities to magnify this abuse and deal with it decisively. It should serve as a warning to others. Also of importance is the need for the bullied girl to go through some counselling so that every impending trauma is squashed before it develops. As I'd always say, we can only give what we were given. This is how monsters are created. No child was born violent," he continued.

Influencer Kie Kie commented on Bovi's post, commending the bravery of the student who was bullied.

She said, "I have such huge respect for the parent of the bullied child, for raising such a fine girl. Some people saw a timid girl. I saw a girl with an extremely commendable self control while standing her ground. She wasn’t crying, she wasn’t begging and regardless of how loud their voices were and how plenty in number they were she didn’t let her head down!"

"A girl as myself that can’t and doesn’t fight as well, I’ve won so many situations in life by just being smart. Violence is for the fooooooolitch and weak! Pray she continues to grow with such Grace," she added.
