How Adesua Etomi protected my daughter from bullies – Iretiola Doyle

Iretiola Doyle, a veteran Nollywood actress, praised her colleague Adesua Etomi-Wellington for protecting her daughter Jemiyo from bullies.

Iretiola Doyle revealed in a lengthy Instagram post on Thursday that her 18-year-old daughter was once the target of schoolyard bullying.

She noted that when Adesua stepped into the issue, the bullying “died down significantly”.

Ireti  Doyle remarked that her daughter had recently transferred to a new school and secured a position on the student council shortly after her return.

The actress said, ” Within months of arriving she vied for and won a position on the students Council. Apparently that’s not allowed. You cannot just arrive here and begin to ‘shine’ without ‘permission’.

“Oh the bullying was aggressive! And most of the time, she would beg me not to step in, determined to make her own way.

“Anyways, Mrs. Wellington heard about the goings on and said ‘Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem from school one day’. I said OK. On the said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual.

“@adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from school. She took her time to stroll round the school compound with her arm around Jemiyo, waving at the students who had become dumbstruck.

“The message was clear: ‘This is my Beloved, thou shall not touch’. Suffice to say the bullying died down significantly from that day – true star power.”
