A 15-year-old student of Government Technical College, Ikorodu (names withheld) has narrated how one of her teachers, Adefemi Adewunmi, allegedly threatened to kill her after having carnal knowledge of her.
The teenager said Adewunmi warned her not to tell anybody about it after raping her in an hotel in their area.
The 15-year-old student who lives in Lowa community in Ikorodu, as gathered, was on her way to school on Monday, when her teacher who was driving in his car offered to give her a ride to school.
But he allegedly detoured and took her to an undisclosed hotel in Ikorodu where he allegedly forced his way into her.
The 15-year-old girl said: “I didn’t know where he was going until we reached the hotel in Ikorodu. He forced his way into me and said he would kill me if I told anyone.”
She was said to have summoned courage and opened up to her mother, who subsequently reported the case at the Ikorodu division, consequent upon which the Divisional Police Officer ordered for the arrest of the father of one.
The teenager was said to have been taken to Italewa Health Care centre for treatment.
In a related development, Policemen at Ikorodu , have arrested 38-year-old Uwenzi John, for allegedly molesting his 14-year-old sister in-law , sexually, in his Ikorodu apartment.
The arrest of the father of three from Ebonyi State, followed a complaint lodged by his wife, Happiness , that her husband had been sleeping with her sister since November last year and February 2022.
The bubble however burst after the teenager who claimed she could no longer stand the sexual molestation from the Mechanical Technician, confided in her sister.
Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed both arrests. He said investigation was still ongoing, adding that the cases had been transferred to the Gender Officer, at the Command headquarters for further investigation.
