Ogidi police said that they have arrested 14-year-old Okafor Chinaza and her mother after the beating death of teacher Odilinye Rita.

Chinaza and her mother are both facing a charge of murder.

According to the police investigation, Rita ordered her student, Chinaza, to clean the classroom as it was her chance to do so.
