The Queen's College student, whose video went viral online last week after her mother fought with the school security, will now be made to face the school's disciplinary panel.

On Tuesday, one of the trending topics online was about a young student who had fixed artificial lashes to school and was disciplined by the school authority, only for her mother to take up the matter against a security guard.

Many people had condemned the school authority for harassing the girl, while many others applauded the step taken by the school as the right one.

But more details are beginning to emerge on the matter, as the school and the state government are looking to take more action against her.

According to ‘The Nation’, an undisclosed source narrated what really transpired between the young girl, her mother, and the school authorities.

“The girl was returning to school two weeks after the mid-term had ended,” the source began as he narrated the incident.

"When the teachers saw her with eyelashes and painted nails, they asked her to kneel down. Her mother came in with her, sat down and listened but did not say anything.

"Someone heard her telling her daughter in Igbo that she should run away, but the girl refused. After the third time, the mother grabbed the girl’s bag and made to leave. The girl then called out, ‘Mummy where are you going?’

“When people realised that she was the girl’s mother, she quickly dragged the girl out. The security man did not know it was the girl’s mother dragging her out. In an attempt to ask why she was taking one of our students out, that was when she attacked the security man.

“The woman came to drop the girl around 5 am in the morning urging her to sneak into her class. But the girl did not sneak in. She stood by the security gate till morning, and presented herself to the school management. A man who claimed to be her father came to the school to apologise on her behalf, but we found out that he is not her father.

“She will face the disciplinary committee. Many people – including the state, are now interested in the case. So we are investigating."

The Caretaker Committee of the College’s PTA also released a statement confirming their support of the school management’s position on discipline.

“We condemn in totality the action of the parent," a part of the statement reads.

"We stand by the management in enforcing discipline in the school. However, the Committee will invite both the parent, and the student with a view to ameliorating the situation, and preventing a repeat of similar occurrence. The lesson we need to take home on this is simply that Queen’s College will not tolerate violation of its well-settled rules and regulations.”
