Our reporter| The police in Bornu state have arrested a female teacher for allegedly raping a 4-year-old pupil.
The teacher, identified as Aunty Zara working with Golden Olive school, in Maiduguri, the state capital, was said to have been arrested by the police last week.
Sani Kamilu, Borno police spokesperson, who confirmed the incident over the weekend, said it was the victim’s father who reported the case to the police, adding that investigations into the incident have begun.
Hassan Dala, the father of the victim, said he reported the case to the police when he noticed his daughter’s urine was reddish.
“Initially, I presumed it to be a symptom of infection. I took her to the hospital, and they told us what the problem was,” Dala said.
“When the mother asked her, the victim told us what the teacher did to her. The victim said that the teacher cuddled, gave her breasts to suck, and inserted a finger inside her private part.”
The development comes hours after the Ogun police command arrested one Sikiru Ajibola over an allegation of raping a five-year-old boy to death in Ogun state.
