Teacher arrested for defiling two girls within 24hrs

A secondary school teacher, Lateef Olaniran, has been arrested for allegedly defiling two young ladies within 24 hours in Ogun State.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs, Adijat Olaleye, said this in a statement, on Wednesday, November 8, 2023.

According to the statement, Olaniran is a native of Ipokia Local Government Area of Ogun State and is a Mathematics teacher at Ebenezer Grammar School, Iberekodo, Abeokuta.

It was said that he is an employee of the Ogun State Teaching Service Commission with the number, OGNO.30650.

According to the commissioner, Olaniran was arrested on Saturday when a member of her team got a call from a young lady reporting that a man had raped her.

The commissioner noted that the ministry swung into action and located the victim, whom she said was taken to a laboratory for different tests before she was later led to the police station to make a report.

“We, thereafter, went with the police to the accused home but after several knocks, he refused to open the gate. We were able to locate the brother to the house owner who assisted us in gaining access to the compound,” she explained.

Adeleye stated that when they got into the compound of the suspect, “We heard a girl’s cry for help, and with the support of the police, we caught Mr Olaniran Lateef Adewale a secondary school mathematics teacher at Ebenezer Grammar School Iberekodo, Abeokuta.”

The commissioner added that the girl crying in the teacher’s room during his arrest also accused him of “forcibly having sexual intercourse with her and threatening to kill her if she does not ask her family to send him money.”

Adeleye confirmed that the suspect has been remanded at the Ogun State Police Command Headquarters for more investigations.
