A 21-year-old primary school teacher at Ogijo, Ogun state, Moshood Abdul, has been reportedly arrested after allegedly molesting three female pupils.
The Nation reports that the suspect allegedly lured the pupils to one of the classrooms on Monday, July 1, at Labori Oloja area of Ogijo with N100 each.
The newspaper, citing anonymous sources, reports that passers-by who heard the cries of the pupils stormed the classroom and caught Moshood in the act.
Legit.ng gathers that he was immediately arrested and handed over to the police at So Safe Corps in the community.
"The three pupils are not more than 10 years old and they are all primary school pupils.
“The suspect later confessed that he had been molesting pupils in the school for some time and he has been handed over to the police in the community,’’ one of the sources was quoted to have said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Nigeria's Senate said the application of death penalty to rapists would go a long way to curtail the rising wave of rape and defilement of minors in the country.
Apart from resolving death penalty for offenders, the lawmakers underscored the necessity to review relevant laws as well as open registers for rape offenders across the land.
The resolution followed the adoption of a motion on increasing cases of rape, sponsored by a senator representing Cross Rivers north, Senator Rose Oko, who asked the red chamber to take the lead by reviewing existing laws to discourage the trend.
Senator Oko called attention to several alleged rape cases, including the one allegedly by the Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo.
She said the trend has become worrisome and become a national problem that should worry the Senate.
