Teacher, 48, Docked Over Alleged Anal S*x With Girl, 9, Inside School
A 48-year old teacher, Adewale Bakare, has been arrested for allegedly engaging a 9-year old girl in anal sex inside the school premises.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened at Methodist Girls High School, Sabo, Yaba area of Lagos, where the suspect, Adewale, was employed as class teacher.
The little girl’s father went to the Police and reported that her daughter was defiled by Adewale Bakare inside the school, though he did not state how he defiled the girl. The Police then arrested and later transferred him to the Gender Section of the Command for interrogation over the alleged sexual assault on the girl.
During interrogation, the suspect, Adewale Bakare, was said to have wept bitterly and denied having done so to the girl or any of the pupils or students since he started teaching in the school.
The girl in question was said to have told the Police that the suspect did not touch her talk less of engaging her in sex through the anus.
According to their neighbours, the girl’s father sent their mother away and lives with the children and there had been two instances when he had alleged his driver to have defiled the girl and the driver was handed for life imprisonment while two female teachers from another school, where she attended primary school were also jailed before Adewale Bakare was linked with her now that she is in secondary school.
However, the girl’s father insisted that she was defiled and asked the Police to charge the suspect to Court. And accordingly he was charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for sexual assault by penetrating her anus.
When he was arraigned, the Court did not take his plea following a motion moved by the prosecutor, Supol Lucky Ihiehie, asking the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Layinka, ordered his remand in Correctional Centre pending the outcome of the DPP’s advice and the prosecutor was directed to duplicate the file and send it to the DPP.
The matter was adjourned till 19th May, 2022, for the report of the DPP to be available, which will determine if the matter will be transferred to the High Court or not over jurisdiction.
