The Ondo State government has been petitioned over the case of a 15-year-old student allegedly impregnated by her teacher after raping her and repeatedly slept with her for two years till she got pregnant.
A copy of the petition signed by a legal practitioner, Oluwafemi Akinbinu of Omoyeni Chambers in Ondo, was shared on social media on Friday.
It was gathered that the incident happened at Jubilee Secondary School in Ondo town and recently caught the attention of one Mr Ogunfiditimi who escalated the case.
The suspect identified as Sola Akinyemi is said to be a Christian Religious Studies (CRS) teacher in the school.
According to Ogunfiditimi, the teacher seized the girl’s phone in school and used it as a bait to lure her to different hotels in Ondo and his House to sleep where he repeatedly slept with her which finally resulted in pregnancy.
He said after being confronted by the parent of the girl, Akinyemi got them arrested.
Ogunfiditimi said he took interest in the case after he was informed that the suspect has been intimidating the victim and her parents with police.
According to him:
“I was in Ondo during the last break and stayed at my Mother in law’s place. .
“I overheard a woman talking to her about her daughter getting impregnated by one of her teachers at JUBILEE SECONDARY SCHOOL . I got interested in the case and went to see the young lady today.
“The teacher’s name is Sola Akinyemi and he teaches Christian Religious Studies. She is 15 years of age. She told me the entire story. Her phone was seized in school and the so-called teacher used the phone as a bait to lure her to different hotels in Ondo and his House to sleep with her.
“The lady got pregnant and her parents went to Akinyemi’s house at Sabo. He denied the pregnancy after which her uncle deflated his tires in anger.
“The man thereafter brought policemen from Akure to arrest the parents and the girl too. The police actually released them and they got back to Ondo around 8:30pm.
“The woman told me she had to borrow some money from the policemen to transport themselves to Ondo (They are poor, I went to the house today, not funny at all)
“I am really interested in this case, what can we do to bring this man to book? I learnt from her that the school is not aware but that some of his friends are calling the woman that they should not escalate the issue because the man has connections and will deal with them.”
He, however, revealed that the State government has taken up the case for investigation and has also sent officials from the ministry of education to the school.
