Nollywood actress Ireti Doyle described how Adesua Etomi intervened when her daughter was bullied at school.
The actress detailed how her daughter moved to a new school and was welcomed by bullies in a lengthy Instagram post shared on Thursday, May 26, 2022.
“NOT SO RANDOM STORY Sooo sisi kekere (can I still refer to her like that?🤔) had just transferred to a new school having spent her entire academic career up to that point in one place. It took a whole summer of convincing, but I finally caved in – do not underestimate @jemiyodoyle once she’s set her mind on a thing,” she wrote.
“Anyways, she arrives, bright and bubbly eager to take on new territory and blossom, which she did. Within months of arriving she vied for and won a position on the Students Council. Apparently, that’s not allowed. “You cannot just arrive here and begin to “shine” without “permission”.
“Oh, the bullying was aggressive! And most of the time, she would beg me not to step in, determined to make her way. Anyways Mrs. Wellington heard about the goings-on and said “Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem up from school one day”… I said OK,” she added.
“On the said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual… @adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from schl…she took her time to stroll around the school compound with her arm around Jemiyo, waving at the students who had become dumbstruck.”
