Physinews: A 35-year-old teacher, Chukwu Ndubuisi, was yesterday, arraigned before an Ogudu
Magistrate’s Court, Ikeja magisterial district,
Lagos, for allegedly raping a six-year-old pupil
(names withheld) within the school (name

Before the arraignment, Vanguard gathered that
an official of Temitayo Ogan Child Safety and
Support Foundation, TCOSS, who got wind of the
act, reported the case to Lagos State Domestic
and Sexual and Violence Response Team, DSVRT. It was learned that the Fine Arts teacher, who
committed the act after the school hours within
the school premises in Omole Phase 11, was
arrested by officers from Ketu Police Station.

The Investigating Police Officer, IPO, Betty Coker,
told the court, during the arraignment, that
results of medical test conducted on the victim
confirmed attempted penetration.

The IPO disclosed that the suspect allegedly
committed the offence which is punishable under
Section 260 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State,
2011. Magistrate S. Hamzat, who adjourned the case to
November 3, granted the suspect N100,000 bail
with two sureties to deposit N50,000 each.

The magistrate added that one of the sureties
must be a blood relation and must be gainfully
employed by a reputable and verified
organisation and must be tax compliant. DSVRT Coordinator, Mrs. Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi,
disclosed to Vanguard that the State Directorate
of Public Prosecution, DPP, has demanded for the
duplicate case file, to aid quick delivery of
judgment.
