Teacher arrested for raping, impregnating 12-year-old girl

A teacher, at Bright Kids Academy, Barkin Ladi, Plateau State Chukwudi Boniface, has reportedly been arrested for raping and impregnating a 12-year-old girl (names withheld).

Public relations officer of the police command, SP Felicia Anselm who confirmed the arrest said investigation into the matter was ongoing.

“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.

How it happened:

It was  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.”
