A 46-year-old teacher, Adenekan Adegboyega, has been arrested by the police in Lagos State for allegedly defiling a two-year-old girl.
The supervising teacher in one of the popular and privately-run
schools in Lagos State was alleged to have defiled the little girl under
the guise of teaching her sex education.
The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr Fatai Owoseni, who
confirmed the arrest to newsmen on Wednesday, said the suspect was later
arrested following a complaint lodged by the victim’s parents at the
Ikeja Police Division.
He said that preliminary investigation revealed that the teacher
allegedly defiled the girl, stressing that the suspect would be charged
to court soon.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on the sidelines of
the briefing, the suspect said that he got a telephone call from the
pupil’s mother accusing him of defiling her daughter.
The suspect said he wondered where and when he committed such a crime, denying ever doing such with the baby girl.
“The mother of the pupil told me that she wanted what transpired between me and her daughter to end.
“She said she did not want any other person to hear about the incident, that even the girl’s father was not aware.
“When the mother of the pupil dropped her call, I was disturbed in my spirit and asked myself where the devil was coming from.
“Few minutes later, she sent a text message to me, telling me to
remain firm with her daughter, because her daughter respected me like
her father,” he said.
The teacher, who claimed to be a pastor in a Pentecostal church, denied doing such a thing with the minor.
“Before God almighty, I know nothing about the allegation levelled against me by the mother of the minor.
“I want to implore the Nigerian Police to do a thorough investigation.
“I am ready to surrender myself, but I know the God almighty that I
serve will vindicate me because this is a serious challenge for me.
“The allegation that I was teaching the girl sex education is not
true, because I had never taught in the school. I only supervise and
walk round to make sure everything went well,” he said.
The mother of the abused girl, who spoke on condition of anonymity,
said the daughter told her that someone put his ‘Wiwi’ (penis) into her
`wiwi’ ( private part).
“I asked her who the person was; my daughter then mentioned Mr Adenekan’s name saying he did it inside his office toilet.
“Truly, she is two years old but she could describe things vividly.”
“After my daughter explained everything to me, I got the teacher’s phone number from the school and called him.
“Initially, I did not want the issue to go out because of the stigma it would bring against my daughter in the school.
“Thereafter, I confronted the teacher not to threaten my daughter
again and it was then he said I could go to anywhere to report.
“He said nobody would believe me, that even if I told the management of the school, they would not believe me,” she said.
The girl’s mother further said that Adenekan had no reason to be at
the nursery section of the school, because he only supervises the
“When I took my daughter to Mirabel Medical Centre in Ikeja, it was revealed that she had been abused.”
