Teacher defiles 13-year-old girl in Ogun

The Ogun State Police Command has arrested Femi Onayemi, for defiling a 13-year-old girl (name withheld) in the Obada-Oko area of the state.

According to information exclusively provided to journalists by a police source in the state command on Sunday, the suspect had earlier been hired by the girl’s parents to tutor her at their home in the community in 2023.

It was learned that the survivor’s parents were shocked when the suspect scaled the fence of their home to gain access to the 13-year-old’s room and commit the heinous crime.

The spokesperson for the state command, Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident and stated that Onayemi had been arrested.

She said, “The parents of the minor approached our division at Obada Oko on June 12, 2024, to report the incident. The suspect was employed in 2023 to help the survivor with her studies at home.

“However, on June 9, 2024, the suspect was caught committing the crime after he had jumped over the fence of the house. Our men swung into action immediately after the matter was reported.

“The suspect was also believed to be attending the same church that the survivor attends every Sunday. He confessed to the crime after we arrested him.”

In September 2023, it had also been reported that a similar incident occurred involving a 43-year-old teacher, Joshua Olufemi, from the Heritage Group of Schools in Ofada Town, Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State, who allegedly assaulted a 13-year-old male pupil.

Olufemi was believed to have been allegedly having carnal knowledge of the minor through the pupil’s anus no fewer than six times at different times inside his room before his arrest.
