A secondary school teacher in Ogun State, Lateef Olaniran, has been arrested for allegedly raping a young lady.
Olaniran, a native of Ipokia Local Government of Ogun State, is a Mathematics teacher at Ebenezer Grammar School, Iberekodo, Abeokuta.
The State Commissioner for Women Affairs, Adijat Olaleye, disclosed this on Wednesday.
According to her, Olaniran was arrested on Saturday, when a member of her team got a call from a young lady reporting that she had been raped by a man.
The Commissioner said the Ministry swung into action and located the victim, whom she said went 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.”
She confirmed that the suspect was detained at the Ogun State Police Command Headquarters for further investigations.
