A 23-year-old secondary school teacher, Azunyere Chima, has been arrested by the police in Ogun state for allegedly defiling his 14-year-old student in the state.
This was made known by the Ogun state Police Public Relations Officer DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who said the suspect was arrested following a report by the father of the alleged victim at Ibafo divisional headquarters that his daughter was raped at the house of the suspect who happened to be her Arts teacher.
The father told the police that the teacher under the guise of assisting his daughter with her practical work invited her to his home. But on getting there, he allegedly dragged her into his room, overpowered and forcefully had sex with her, causing her to bleed profusely from her private part.
The police spokesperson said the suspect has made a confessional statement to the Police while the victim had been taken to a hospital for medical treatment. He added that the suspect has been transferred to the Anti-human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department(SCIID) for proper investigation and prosecution.
