    I still maintain that there’s no smoke without fire, sexual harassment is everywhere, at the office, bank, Nollywood etc,……It’s sad.

    That is the power of SOCIAL MEDIA. I bet this would have been swept under the table otherwise. However, we must know the final outcome after investigations are concluded, so yes we await that.

    GREAT!!!
    Now we can know the identity of the accuser and proper investigation can be carried out.
    At least this should save us from the social media mob action.

      No not great. In fact it’s the worst thing ever. Do not release the child’s identity. O God I’m even afraid for the poor girl

      Why should the identity of the accuser be hidden when the accused has been declared guilty all over social media?? Even if the identity of the child is not released at least the mother who wrote the letter should not remain anonymous.

      If at all you unerstand the process of child abuse, you should know that the child in question and her family should be protected, not exposed. I am not sure how things are done in Nigeria, but an allegation of this nature against a young person should be inverstigated and tried within a confidential setting.

    Why does the principal have to accompany the teacher to the police station, this does not look right. The principal is supposed to be neutral so that the investigations can be fair. I hope this matter is not swept under the carpet.

    i think one thing that will help with the investigation is the call record, the mother aid her daughter called her the night of incident.

    if you search him on twitter, his gist has been on the TL since 2011. Is he the only male teacher that successive generations of gals are accusing him.
    he also does not know how to curb his tongue. The grossest thing i read he said was the one about “If i put my gala in your something you will not see your tasty-time” . How creepy is that. Guy really needs to be investigate

    This is progress. I am glad. Personally, everyone who has covered up this teacher’s atrocities must be relieved of their positions. this is a clear case of abuse of power and dereliction of duties. Parents should strongly look into removing their kids from this school.
