A student of the Federal Girls College Akure in Nigeria was seen in a video destroying seized mobile phones of herself and other colleagues under the supervision of a teacher.
Obviously, these students flouted the rules of the school that forbids them from coming to school with mobile phones. Therefore, their phones were smashed and destroyed as punishment.
Most Nigerians on Twitter have shared divergent views concerning this situation. Many condemned the action of the school while some sided with the decision of the teacher.
What’s your view on the punishment? Do you take it was deserving or too harsh?

I understand that mobile phones are prohibited in some boarding schools, but asking students to destroy their phones by themselves is not fair enough, especially after they had suspended them from the hostel. This is Federal Girls College in Akure. pic.twitter.com/13LkW8gA0Y
