An X user @itsSh0la condemned the incident, urging the school to take stern action against the oppressor.

He wrote, "Hopefully, the family of the girl being bullied doesn't take it lightly. Hand needs to touch the girl, it's not just few weeks suspension or cleaning the school compound for weeks, she needs to be touched too."

Another user, @honest30bgfan_, confirmed that the school had locked their social media handles' comment and message boxes to avoid being quizzed.

He wrote, "Was able to find their ig and twitter. Them don lock comment sha but una fit still mount."
