A teacher in a private secondary school (name withheld), Mathew Adebayo has been arrested for the rape of a 15 -year- old female student of the school in Sango, Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of the State.
The teacher, according to a statement issued by the spokesman of the Ogun Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, was arrested after the proprietress of the school reported at Sango police station that she was informed by one of her SS3 students that the suspect had raped her repeatedly since the resumption of the school in preparation for the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC ).
Oyeyemi said the suspect stated further that the said teacher intimidated the victim by telling her that she will not pass the WAEC exams, “if she didn’t allow him have sex with her, consequent upon which he had been calling her out of the dormitory in the night and taking her to a classroom where he used to have carnal knowledge of her”.
Oyeyemi said the proprietress added that when the victim could no longer bear the sexual assault of the randy teacher, she decided to inform her.
Upon the report, the DPO Sango division, Godwin Idehai detailed his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.
Oyeyemi said the suspect has since made a confessional statement admitting to the commission of the crime, while the victim has been taken to hospital for medical attention.
The Commissioner of Police, Edward A. Ajogun has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the Anti human trafficking and child labor unit of the State Criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
