Police in Cameroon has detained a teacher after a video of him reportedly viciously abusing a nine-year-old kid surfaced online.
The attack is said to have occurred at an elementary school in Doula, Cameroon’s commercial center.
The video has received a lot of attention on social media, and it has sparked a lot of outrage.
It shows four youngsters holding a nude boy by his arms and feet as a guy beats him with a rubber hose and then a machete.
According to an eyewitness, the student was penalized for failing to provide a justification for missing a few days of school.
An investigation has been launched by the police.
Corporal punishment is outlawed in Cameroon, but some schools still use it.
