School bullying: Bovi commends Namtira’s calmness

Stand-up comedian Bovi Ugboma has weighed in on the viral video of a female student of Lead British school who bullied her fellow classmate, Namtira Bwala.

Bovi expressed delight there are well-raised children who are soft, meek, and civil.

Bovi lauded Namtira for being calm, even though she could have been afraid but didn’t whimper and beg.

He wrote: “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 are under the deadliest 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.

“However, it is left for the authorities to magnify this abuse and deal with it decisively. It should serve as a warning to orders.

“Also of importance is the need for the bullied girl to go through some counseling 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.

“Lastly, I saw the video of the relative who slapped the bully. She acted in fury, but by the definition of law, she acted in retaliation. While I understand the outrage and her anger, let’s not forget that these are the issues. Slapping somebody across the face is a no. Nothing civil about it. We must start to preach this across board and we must emphasize the criminality of jungle justice”.
