The Oyo State Police Command has arrested a 20-year-old primary school teacher, Collins (surname withheld), for having anal sex with a 10-year-old pupil.

The suspect, according to Ajisebutu, was also an extra mural class teacher to the victim.
He committed the dastardly act on Saturday, November 5, when he lured the boy to a house around Asaka area, Itamaya, Ibadan.
According to Ajisebutu, “the victim was taken to the hospital for medical attention.”
The police image maker also revealed that the suspect had been arrested for onward prosecution.
He said: “The arrest of the suspect was made, following report made at the Iyaganku Police Station by the victim’s mother after a formal report of the incident..
“Consequently, detectives from the station arrested the suspect in his hideout. During interrogation, he confessed to the crime and disclosed that he was introduced to sodomy by an older friend, who is now at large.”
Ajisebutu further informed that “the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Samuel Adegbuyi, has directed immediate arraignment of the suspect after completion of discreet investigation by the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.”
The Commissioner of Police, therefore, warns against such unlawful, criminal act, even as parents and guardians are advised to properly monitor their children or wards.
