Parents Of Boy Who Died In School Due To Alleged Negligence Withdraws Other Kids From Boarding School + Swear Never Again

Sad!!!







Prince Cornelius and Ogochukwu Onyekwuluje, parents of Chidalu Bright Onyekwuluje, who died of alleged negligence by the management of St Michael’s Boys Secondary School, Ozubulu, Anambra State, have withdrawn their daughters from boarding school.


Chidalu died on December 17, 2021, after he took ill in school and the management allegedly kept him to ensure he finished his exams thereby aggravating his health condition. The school has denied this.

He said: “Bright is my only son and having seen the fate that has befallen him in the hands of the school management as a boarder, I have therefore withdrawn my two daughters who are schooling in St John of God Secondary School, Awka.

“I have sat and thought about the things that are happening in boarding schools, including the one in Dowen College, the Deeper Life school in Uyo and now my son in St Michael’s Boys’ College, Ozubulu, and I have concluded that as far as I’m alive, none of my children will ever attend a boarding school in this country anymore.

“I did not go to school, so my wish is that all my children will go to good schools, to attain education, but you have seen the fate that befell my only son, Bright Chidalu, so I have made up my mind about boarding schools in Nigeria.”

The deceased was buried two weeks ago in his home town, Uzoakwa, Ihiala, Anambra State.

  1. Good decision! No kid of mine will attend a boarding school. The evil going on in some of these schools is something else.
    Go to school from home, I’ll be seeing you every day. May his soul Rest In Peace.

    1. My children are in boarding sch,and will remain there. Parents if you have the heart to send your kids to boarding sch,you need to have a proper talk with them. My children's sch,they do keep the kids oh if they are sick,they send them straight to the hospital and call you,cos you will be the one too pay the bills. Or if u use HMO so you can come around and fill the forms. You are always given an option once the case becomes severe.

    2. Asides this lets also teach our kids to be vocal. I was quiet as a child but not timid. Any maltreatment from teachers,Principal etc i was fast to report it at home. I had a close rltshp with my parents.
      I was a boarder but my mother was known as that no-nonsense parent..Teachers/principal all knew her. She has come to confront a teacher that slapped me and i got a nose bleed before.
      If im ill im very fast to send someone to call home, even when they try and refuse my parents picking me that they are treating me, my parents wont agree. Me sef will wont keep quiet.
      Even in my sons schools too they know me and my wahala. Still my son wont be going to boarding,too many things happening now abeg.

    3. Exactly if you must go the boarding route, you must have a close relationship with ur kid. Encourage them yo speak out. My kids are boarders and the whole sch knows my husband. That one is a no nonsense guy. My kids confide in me,cos i do the weekly calls to them,and he takes any action that comes up. When my boy was sick,and we were called,we told them go take him straight to the hospital,while hubby drove from lag to akure to be with him same day.

    4. Let's also remember that not all kids are the same and it also depends on the level of trauma.


      There's a level of trauma and fear that even a very talkative and courageous child will get broken, especially when they don't get to see their parents to encourage them everyday.

      Also, the clique issue, your child will feel so isolated to the point that they bend to follow the wills of others.
      The key is to know your child, a child who is easily swayed has no business in any boarding school.

  12. I kinda think boarding schools are for lazy parents.
    They can't multitask work and training kids so they dump them or they wan to enjoy their lives devoid of kids wahala.

    1. As a Nigerian man that you are, , I am not surprised at your vituperations.
      Have you ever heard of working parents? Those that their work requires travelling? Single parents and widows/widowers ago have to work in order to take care of their kids? Would you prefer they leave the kids at the mercy of the house maid in their home or in a boarding school with other kids and teachers?
      Laziness isnone word that has been so seriously abused by Nigerian men and women that I wonder if they think with their brains before using it.

    2. Please that is not true...I went to boarding school does it mean my parents were lazy...We should push for the institutions and teachers to make sure the right things are done; students were put in your custody to cater for and you didn't do the right thing...Blaming the parents is totally unfair...

    3. this is very judgemental thing to say ..do you know that some parents are transferred from place to place at their jobs or live abroad? ..I and my siblings are products of good boarding schools and I advocate this because there is a clear difference in our people management skills in life and our independence ...in as much as I don't bash anyone for their decision to keep kids at home also leave those who see the benefit and put their kids in good boarding schools to also do what they want ..what has happened is regrettable but a GOOD school is a good school wether boarding or not likewise a bad school ..pray for your kids and be close to them .God help us all

    4. Thank you for this comment except a parent is critically ill or dead boarding is a no. I told my daughter she won’t even stay in university hostel sef she’ll be going from home many local uni everywhere.

    5. See statement...GOSH. You ppl feel its everyone dat has good schools in their vicinity? What of parents working in remote areas with no good Secondary sch around and all good schools are in the next town or in d City. The child will have no choice but to be in boarding school. Many parets dont just have a choice cos of proximity issue.
      As a child thank God i was taught to be vocal. I have reported teachers and incidents to my parents who took it up. If im sick in school,i wont even agree myself, i must go home.

    6. I won't call them lazy, but there is something wrong with them for dumping their children for others to train while they are hale and hearty. Makes no sense to me.

    7. Boarding school is not for lazy parents. In my time Federal govt colleges were among the best schools...my parents wanted the best for me and I went there. Today, I am glad I did.
      @anon 10.45, so if your child gets a scholarship to attend university in a foreign country, you would instruct them not to go since they can't be taking flight to the university everyday,
      Train your child in the way he or she should go and in old age they won't depart from it...many of these evil perpetuating kids in school have faulty upbringing too.

  32. Nigerians have kids as bragging rights of fertility. Most of those shipping their kids off to boarding schools are follow-follow or people who have no business having kids in the first place

    1. My parents had 4 kids, we all went to boarding schools, we all turned out well.
      We attended dsy schools up until jss3 and went to boarding from SS1...in out time Federal govt colleges were seemingly the best, our parents wanted the best for us, off we went. Are you saying most of us that attended FGCs when they were the best had parents who had no bussiness having kids?
      You really need to know out to communicate..."most is wrongly used here and it's insulting to patents who are out there wanting the best for their kids.

  33. In my time, boarding schools in the Federal Government Colleges was really good. I attended one and it helped me become very independent. This was in the early 70's. Times have changed and a lot of children are not well brought up. There are too many badly behaved children these days. None of my kids went to boarding School. I chose to train them myself at home and they went to Day School to avoid stories that touch. I am glad I took that decision.
