Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has slammed school teachers who punish students for speaking local Nigerian languages which is described as ‘vernacular’.

In a tweet on Monday, the 38-year-old actor said all teachers who beat their students for speaking their own language should be ashamed of themselves.

He criticised the practice of forcing school children to speak foreign languages and
blamed the whites for the abnormality.

“To think that some of our teachers flogged us back then in school for speaking our language. calling it vernacular. Can you imagine? You speak your own language you get flogged. All those teachers should be ashamed of themselves. Oyibo people really messed up our brains,” he wrote.

KanyiDaily recalls that Yul Edochie recounted how his father, Pete Edochie, who is a veteran actor, beat him mercilessly over plans to become a trader by dropping out of school at Junior Secondary 2 (JS2) level.
