A primary school teacher, Collins Obi, has been arrested by policemen for allegedly having anal sex with his student. Obi, 20, was arrested in Ibadan, Oyo State, after allegedly having anal sex with a 10-year old pupil in Asaka Itamaya area of the city.
The teacher was said to be taking the boy in extra mural classes when he lured him into a house in the neighbourhood and defiled him on Monday. The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Mr. Adekunle Ajisebutu, said Obi was arrested following a report by the victim’s mother at the Iyaganku police station.
The victim had reported the abuse to his mother. Consequently, police detectives swooped on the neighbourhood and holed Obi out of his hiding. According to Ajisebutu Obi confessed to the crime, claiming that he was introduced to sodomy by an older friend who is now at large. The victim was taken to a hospital for medical attention.
