Lagos State Police has arrested two teachers of a primary school in the Amuwo Odofin area of the State for allegedly defiling a 6 year old pupil.
The arrest was made after the pupil was caught kissing her brother’s private part while they were playing together.
When asked where she learnt it from, she confessed that one of her teachers had taught her about sex during after-school tutoring and that the practice had been going on for months.
According to the pupil’s mother;
I noticed my daughter was kissing his brother’s manhood. When I asked her where she learnt that from, she started shivering and claimed that it was nothing.
I took her inside like a mother would do, then she opened up that it was actually what she viewed on her teacher’s laptop.
So, I asked her for more details. She said when the lesson was over; the teacher would play pornographic videos for her to watch.
And after that, he would start caressing her until he penetrates her with his manhood and fingers.
From what she said, it happened about four or five times.
We reported the case to the police and investigation showed that she was defiled.
“She has not been eating well and has been crying every time; my baby has suffered trauma,” the mother added.
When the teachers – Stanley Akanno and Olakunle Hassan – were paraded by the ‘X’ Squad of the Zone 2 Police Command, Lagos, on Thursday, the girl identified them as her abusers.
The duo denied the allegations.
The police said that it has been medically established that she had been deflowered.
One of the suspects, Akanno, refuting the allegations, said:
I am a parent as well. If I were to be the parent of the child, I would have started my investigation at home.
According to the girl’s mother, the girl kissed the elder brother’s manhood and that was how she came to know about it.
If she kissed the elder brother’s manhood, once, twice and thrice, it means this is what they have been doing. Unfortunately, they were caught on that day. She should have started her investigation at home.
Hassan, who also refuted the allegations, said:
I was told she claimed that she walked up to me and whispered in my ear telling me that she wanted to suck my manhood and that I took her to a corner and asked her where she leant it from and that I just pulled my trousers down and she started sucking.
I have a laptop which was seized on Friday and they could not find anything like that (pornography) in it. I don’t know where this is coming from but I know that God will vindicate me.
