A two-year-old prospective school pupil has been devoured by 10 dogs belonging to a private school in Amokpo, Umuanunwa, Nteje in Oyi Local Government Area, Anambra State.
The child was said to have been taken to the school for enrollment by his parent when the incident occurred.
The school’s owner, a UK returnee identified as Chinedu Oka, reportedly reared dogs in the school premises despite the community’s warning against it.
A residemt said that the child’s parent was perfecting the documentation and registration of the child when he strayed away to where he was devoured by the dogs.
He said: “The parent was busy with the child’s registration when he wandered off to where the dogs, 10 in number, rushed at him, dragged him into their pen and devoured him with nobody on sight to rescue him.
“It’s a taboo to rear dogs here and the owner was warned, but he didn’t heed the community’s instructions.”
