A 20-year-old primary school teacher identified as Collins Obi is now telling men of the Oyo State Command all he knows after he allegedly had anal s*x with a 10-year-old pupil.
According to Adekunle Ajisebutu, the state Police Public Relations Officer, the suspect who teaches in the school of the victim and also doubles as his class teacher, committed the crime on November 5, 2016.
“The 20-year-old primary schoolteacher was arrested for having anal intercourse with a 10-year-old boy. The suspect, who was also a personal teacher of the victim, committed the unlawful act on November 5, 2016.” The Oyo PPRO said.
Continuing, he added; “He lured the little boy to a house in the Asaka Itamaya area of Ibadan where the offence was committed.”
The suspect according to the state PPRO was arrested after the mother of the victim lodged a complaint at the Iyaganku Police Station, Ibadan while also noting that Collins will soon be charged to court.
“Following the report made at the station by victim’s mother after the boy narrated his ordeal to her, detectives from the station arrested the suspect in his hideout. During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime and disclosed that he was introduced to the act by an older friend, who is now at large.
“The victim was taken to a hospital for medical attention. The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Samuel Adegbuyi, has directed immediate arraignment of the suspect in court after completion of investigation by the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department. He also advised parents and guardians to properly monitor their children or wards.”
