December 07, (THEWILL) – A Nigerian actress, Uche Elendu, has reacted to being accused of bullying a student back in her school days in Owerri.
This development is coming amidst the call to shun bullying following the death of a 12-year-old student who lost his life in the hands of school bullies.
An Instagram user had called out the actress for bullying her sister and being a hypocrite for supporting the shun bullying campaign.
Reacting, the actress took to her Instastory to address the accusation as she affirmed that she is a principled person but does not see the act as that of a bully.
She wrote: “Haaaa God have mercy!!! 22 years after. The exaggeration tho.. pls who is your sister? ill like to give her a big hug and apologize for probably punishing her for being at the wrong place at the wrong time, or disobeying the school rules, Who is a bully?? I know i was a strict senior back in school but i didn’t punish unjustly neither did i inflict injury on my juniors or beat them up, the school was totally against that, Boarding school should just be scrapped, i went through same drilling from my seniors but i cant call that bullying. has me that they will knock on the head and ill see 1 million stars in 5 seconds…. cos really juniors can’t escape being sent on errands or punished, i bet your sister and all the juniors i punished didn’t also perform their duties as prefects and seniors in their time. If you didnt attend a boarding school abeg comot body. #justiceforsylvester.”
