Yul Edochie: The Day Pete Edochie Beat Me Severely For Attempting To Drop Out Of School

Son of veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie, has recounted how his father flogged him mercilessly for daring to suggest he wanted to drop out of school.

Yul Edochie revealed this in a tweet while reacting to a viral video showing a man in Zambia beating his son for performing woefully in his exams after he spent $21,000 on tuition.

The video is currently generating massive reactions on social media, with commentators making a case for and against hitting children as a form of correction.

Explaining, Yul said he was in Junior Secondary School (JSS) 2 when he told his disciplinarian father he wanted to leave school and run an electrical appliances shop instead.

He said his father took him into his room, locked the door, removed his belt and beat him severely.

The actor later attended the University of Port Harcourt, where he bagged a degree in Dramatic Arts.

The younger Edochie further thanked his father for correcting him in such manner.

“In JS2, I told my father I didn’t want to go to school anymore, he should open electrical shop for me. He said ok. He invited me to his room, locked the door & pulled out his belt. He gave me a beating that reset my brain to factory setting. Look at me today. Thank you Dad!” he tweeted.

    You cannot change kids for what they want to become in life. I have seen a brilliant young kid who become a Medical Doctor because his parents wanted him to become one. Contrarily, he preferred flying around as a Pilot and after a little while, he went back to enroll in Aviation School and still become one of the best.

    Gone are those days when parents force a carrier their children. Why cant we just leave our children to decide their life? Todays children can be successful with or without their mentoring because they will adapt and make use of the current situation of life. Our grandparents wish us well but we are the Architect of our lives, They are only scare that we might make a wrong choice and end up on the negative side of life.

    Why can’t you allow your children to be what ever they want to be. Even if it’s armed rubber, barrow pusher, scavenger, etc. Just leave them. Rubbish. I can’t allow my children not to acquire at least tertiary education. A father cannot give what he does not have. Don’t allow your children to detect how they will run their early stages of life.
