On video, a teacher is seen slapping a naked student with a rubber hose and a panga.

Police in Cameroon have arrested a teacher after a video of him allegedly brutally abusing a nine-year-old boy surfaced online.

The attack is thought to have occurred at an elementary school in Doula, Cameroon’s commercial center.

The video has received a lot of attention on social media, and it has sparked a lot of outrage.

It depicts a boy who is completely naked being held by his arms and feet by four other children while a man strikes him with a rubber hose and then a machete.

According to an eyewitness, the student was penalized for failing to provide a justification for missing a few days of school.

An investigation by the police is underway.

Although corporal punishment is illegal in Cameroon, it is nonetheless used in some schools.
