Ondo Pupils Allegedly Gang-Rape Female Colleague
It was gathered that the victim went into the bush to defecate but on her way back, the three pupils of the Akure High School, Idris Matthew, Olawale Tobi, and Ajayi Micheal, accosted her and raped her.
However, Punch quoted another source saying that the suspects perpetrated the crime during break period, adding that the boys trailed and ambushed the victim at a lonely place behind the school.
The source said, “After they have raped her, the girl walked into the classroom with blood stain on her uniform. This indicated that she must have been deflowered.”
The source explained that one of the suspects had attempted to woo the victims but she turned him down and this prompted him to call his colleagues to trail the victim to the bush where the crime was committed.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Funmilayo Odunlami confirmed the arrest, saying the suspects conspired to commit the offence.
“There is a case of conspiracy and defilement against the trio of Idris Matthew, 17, Olawale Tobi, 18, Ajayi Micheal 17, all are students of the Akure High School.
“They lured a 14-year- old student into the bush at the back of the school gate and gang- raped her. The three suspects are in custody”, Odulami said.
KanyiDaily had also reported how a 12-year-old boy was arrested by the police for allegedly kidnapping a three-year-old girl at Magama Gumau community in LGA of Bauchi state.
