The Lagos State Police Command, yesterday arrested one Enilolobo Olamilekan, a teacher with one of the private schools in Ikotun, for allegedly forcing a female student to engage in oral sex.
The 20-year-old, who resides at No. 17 Ayodele Shitta Street, Ikotun, Lagos, was said to have lured the 12-year-old female student (name withheld) to his house and taken advantage of her.
The teacher was said to have been contracted to conduct private lessons for the girl and several others in the premises of a private school located in Ikotun.
The suspect who was paraded, told journalists that he had tasked the victim on an assignment but she failed to deliver.
He said: “Upon resumption of the lesson day, I told her to come with one notebook and one writing book for her lessons, but on the said day, she came with only one book.
“I gave her assignment to write in the book she didn’t come with and I instructed her to tell her mum to buy the book for the assignment.
“The next day, she came to school and still didn’t buy the book and I told her to go and wait for me in another class.
“After the class, I took her to a nearby shop and bought the notebook and a pack of biscuit as she said she was hungry.
“I then took her to my house and I asked her to sit down and I pulled down my trouser and I then inserted my manhood into her mouth.
“While I was in the act, I sighted my younger brother who was on his way back from school, I quickly stopped and pulled up my trouser.
“The girl went home and reported me to her parents. The next day, the parents came to the school to report and they accused me of molesting her.
“Although I denied raping her, they still took her and ran tests on her and discovered that I didn’t penetrate.”
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, said the suspect would be charged for indecent assault.
Badmos urged parents, especially those with female kids, not to be careless in leaving their children without exercising due diligence in protecting them.
