A 20-year-old primary school teacher, Collins Obi, has been arrested by the Oyo State Police command for raping a 10-year-old boy in Ibadan.
According to Punch, Obi taught in the victim’s school and was also his personal teacher. The State Police PRO, Adekunle Ajisebutu, explained that Obi lured the boy to a house in the Asaka Itamaya area of Ibadan where he raped him. Obi was arrested after the victim’s mother reported the case to the Police.
Ajisebutu said, “The 20-year-old primary schoolteacher was arrested for having anal intercourse with a 10-year-old boy. The suspect, who was also a personal teacher of the victim, committed the unlawful act on November 5, 2016.
“He lured the little boy to a house in the Asaka Itamaya area of Ibadan where the offence was committed.”
“Following the report made at the station by victim’s mother after the boy narrated his ordeal to her, detectives from the station arrested the suspect in his hideout. During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime and disclosed that he was introduced to the act by an older friend, who is now at large.
“The victim was taken to a hospital for medical attention. The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Samuel Adegbuyi, has directed immediate arraignment of the suspect in court after completion of investigation by the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department. He also advised parents and guardians to properly monitor their children or wards.”
