A secondary school teacher has been sent to jail for allegedly defiling one of his female students.
According to the prosecutor, Osasu Ewemade, Olayemi, a married father of three and an English teacher at the King of Kings College, Benin, had allegedly invited the girl who is his student, into his office and defiled her by fondling, kissing and dipping his fingers into her private parts, on May 26, 2014.
Ewemade told the court the offence contravened Section 360 of the Criminal Code, Cap 48, Vol. II, Law of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria, 1976, as applicable in Edo.
When the charges were read to him, the accused pleaded not guilty but the presiding magistrate, Igho Braimoh, found him guilty on all counts and sentenced him to one year in prison for each count, with the terms running concurrently.
