Ekiti State Police Command has arrested three secondary school teachers for allegedly raping underaged female students in the schools where they teach in the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu, said the three suspects currently being detained at the police headquarters in Ado Ekiti were from Osi Grammar School, Osi Ekiti in Ido/Osi Council area and All Souls Grammar School in Ado Ekiti metropolis.
Abutu said that the teachers were arrested after an activist reported to the police through a petition that the suspects allegedly molested the victims sexually.
“The suspects; one from Osi Grammar School and two from All Soul’s Grammar School, are in our custody and they are giving us useful information.
“We have invited the victims and they have given useful information to us as well.
“But as of now, the victim from Osi Grammar School denied the allegation when he was interrogated.
“But we are not resting on our oars, we will get to the root of the matter,” he said.
Abutu said the victims from All Soul’s Secondary School had been invited by the police for interrogation, adding that they were yet to give information concerning the incident.
