For allegedly beating a 14-year-old female student to a pulp, two teachers were on Tuesday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.
The accused, Afolabi Ademola, 44, resides at 35, Olawale Cole St., Abule Egba, a Lagos suburb, while Oshomah Oiseta, 41, lives at Paradise Estate, Ota, Ogun. Ademola and Oiseta, a female, are being tried for conspiracy and assault.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Clifford Ogu, told the court that the offences were committed on Dec. 13, 2016 at a secondary school in Abule-Egba.
The accused alleged that they saw the girl with a male student alone at a secluded place within the school premises.
“The two accused asked the girl to lie on the staff room table and to
ok their turns in canning her.
“The girl was beaten to a pulp. The case was reported immediately at the police station by the girl’s parents when she got home,” he said.
Ogu said since the case could not be settled amicably following the Divisional Police Officer’s intervention, the police decided to charge the case to court.
