A teacher, Chukwudi Boniface, has reportedly been arrested for raping and impregnating a 12-year-old girl (names withheld).

Mr. Boniface who taught at the Bright Kids Academy, Barkin Ladi, Plateau was said to have had carnal knowledge  of a primary three pupil of the school he taught in.

The arrest was confirmed by the public relations officer of the police command, Felicia Anselm saying that investigation into the matter was ongoing.

Leadership reports:

“The man has been arrested and investigation is ongoing and he will be charged to court. The girl is already four months pregnant and I want to assure the public that justice will be done in the matter,” she said.

LEADERSHIP gathered that gathered that the private school which is located in Barkin Ladi had in December 2013, introduced an extramural lesson and only four of the pupils attended the lesson including the victim.

It was further gathered that Chukudi had on one occasion, after giving the pupils classwork, told the victim to wait for him in the other classroom with her book where he committed the crime.

The 12-year-old girl while narrating how the teacher raped her, said, “my teacher called me to come close and held my hands and then he forced me down and removed my clothes and had sex with me. I cried but nobody came to help me and when he finished, he warned me not to tell anybody and said if I did, he will deal with me.”

A close family source, who preferred anonymity, said the victim is an orphan and following the treats by the teacher, she kept the secret to herself “until few months later, when we began to notice some pregnancy symptoms and after thorough investigation, she confessed.”
