The culprit named, Timothy Alayoteti is alleged to have been sexually molesting the female student starting from when she was 12 years old in junior secondary III (JSS3).
One of the victim’s family members, Mercy Gabriel, who addressed journalists during a press conference attended by representatives of the Parents Forum of the school revealed that the incident has left the student traumatized and withdrawn.
The family, while demanding justice said they were more disappointed at the school’s principal attitude after the case was reported to her office. They accused her of not doing anything to expose the accused teacher and dismissing the case as a ”mere rumor”.
The Public Relations Officer of the state police command, Adewale Osifeso, who confirmed the incident on Sunday, said an investigation is ongoing.
