Man arraigned for defiling 11 pupils

A 47-year-old man, Rotimi Olayebi Edwards, has been remanded in custody for allegedly sexually assaulting 11 Junior Secondary School pupils.
The suspect is the administrator of the school owned by his mother.

He was remanded by an Egor Magistrate’s Court, where he was arraigned on a three-count charge.
Magistrate Igho Braimoh deferred bail hearing till a later date. The case was adjourned till May 26 for hearing.
The suspect was caught after a close monitoring of his activities.
Neighbours were said to have been suspicious of why some female pupils remain in school till five and six pm daily.
The neighbours, sources said, reported to some parents, who questioned their daughters on what they were doing late in school.
The girls were said to have opened up on the alleged sexual escapades of the suspect.
The parents reported to the Child Protection Network (CPN), a non governmental organisation (NGO), renowned for ensuring that rape victims get justice.
Parents and members of the NGO, led by its coordinator, Jennifer Ero, marched on the school, demanding justice.
Irked by the proprietor’s attitude, the protesters broke into the school and chased pupils away.
A visit to the school yesterday showed that academic activities were yet to begin.
