OMG! This is why I have been screaming my head off, for our Government to start conducting some sort mental checks on Police and other public servants including teachers that work with kids. If necessary things are put in place, some sort of horrific stories won’t hit headlines on a daily basis, as it is nowadays. There’s money in the country called Nigeria for reformation! But instead the money is being squandered by politicians who are supposed to reform the country.
READ THE PATHETIC STORY CULLED FROM PUNCH BELOW:
The police in Ekiti State have arrested a 57-year-old Vice-Principal of St. Mary Girls College, Ikole Ekiti, Mr. Ayo Ajayi, for allegedly raping a 12-year-old pupil of the school inside his office.
Our correspondent gathered that the pupil had gone to the office of the vice-principal on March 18 and she did not come out as quickly as expected. This was said to have fuelled the suspicion of some teachers.
One of the teachers, who reported the case to the police, was said to have moved closer to the door to open it but discovered that the door had been locked from inside.
She was said to have knocked on the door and the pupil and the suspect allegedly hurriedly stopped what they were busy doing inside.
The demeanour of the VP and the pupil was said to have given them away and one of the teachers reported the case to the police.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Victor Babayemi, confirmed the incident in a statement on Tuesday.
He said the vice principal was arrested and investigation into the case had begun.
The statement read, “Operatives of the Command arrested one Ayo Ajayi, aged 57 years, the Vice-Principal of St. Mary Girls College, Ikole-Ekiti, for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old pupil.
“The incident, which allegedly took place on March 18, 2014, inside the vice-principal’s office, was reported to the police by a teacher in the school, who noticed the suspicious entry of the pupil into the VP’s office.
“Investigation revealed that the suspect had a similar case in the past which was not reported. The victim also admitted that the suspect laid her on his table and had carnal knowledge of her.
“The report of the medical examination confirmed that the victim’s hymen was not intact. Although, the suspect denied the allegation, but with the evidence against him, he will soon be arraigned in court for defilement.”
