The grandfather continued that immediately the boy told him that he is unable to speak, he heard the teacher strike his grandson over the phone. The grandfather begged the teacher not to beat his grandson and told him to give him till evening that day to contact the boy’s father and pay for the stolen phone to which the teacher agreed.

He furthered that later in the evening, he called the teacher and informed him that he was unable to get the boy’s father and that he will try later and get back to him in the morning.
