A Nigerian father, Mike Ekunno, has shared a letter he wrote to the Federal Government College, Abuja, following the repeated bullying his son was subjected to.
Ekunno shared what he went through as a parent in 2018 following the recent death of Dowen colleague student, Sylvester Oromoni, who was allegedly attacked by schoolmates.
