Teacher Remanded In Prison For Defiling Pupil


A magistrates’ court sitting in Okitipupa, in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, has ordered that a teacher, Ebenezer Adeyeye, be remanded in prison custody.

Adeyeye, a primary school teacher, was accused of defiling a five-year-old pupil inside the school’s toilet in Okitipupa. He was arrested by the men of the Ondo State Police Command on November 7, 2018.

The accused was said to have lured the victim to the school toilet, where he allegedly had a carnal knowledge of her.

He was arraigned on one count of rape.

According to the police prosecutor, Mr Ayodeji Omoyegha, the case was reported at the police station by the victim’s parents and the suspect was later arrested.

Omoyegha said the offence contravened Section 358 of the Criminal Code Cap 37, Volume 1, Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006.

Adeyeye, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

In his ruling, the magistrate, Mr O. Ogunfuyi, ordered that the suspect be remanded in prison custody pending the outcome of the legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

He adjourned the case till January 30, 2019.
