A Nigerian student has taken to social media to claim that he was flogged brutally by his teachers for identifying as a Marlian.
Marlian is a term used to describe fans of popular Nigerian musician, Naira Marley, though in recent times, there has been allegations of a Marlian cult emerging in secondary schools.
Sharing photos of his battered body on Instagram, the student called on Naira Marley to address the misconception of who Marlians truly are. He wrote;
What we get for calling ourselves marlians…..my school thinks marlian is a cult that do not wear belt and the girls do not wear bra and pants Monday Wednesday and Friday…. Please tag @nairamarley so this statement can be debunked naira Marley has to make a video to tell the world that he is a disciplined person so all this can be reduced”.
