The pupil, while narrating her ordeal to reporters yesterday in Jos, said: “My teacher called me to come close and held my hands and then he forced me down and removed my cloths and had sex with me. I cried but nobody came to help me. So after he finished, he warned me not to tell anybody and said if I did, he would deal with me severely.”
A source said the girl is an orphan and because the teacher had warned her not to mention it to anyone, she kept it to herself “until a few months later when we begin to notice some pregnancy signs, and after thorough investigation, she confessed.”
Confirming the arrest to journalists yesterday in Jos, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Felicia Anselm, said the teacher had been arrested and was in custody for further investigation.
“The man has been arrested and investigations are ongoing, and he will be charged to court,” she added.
