A Vice Principal of a secondary school in Niger State who impregnated a student said she seduced him into sleeping with her.
The randy suspect, according to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Malam Mohammed Kuyizhi who is the staff of Government Day Secondary School, Tunga-Minna, was dragged to the state’s Child Rights Protection Agency over the pregnancy of the junior secondary school student and he confessed to having the sexual affair with the girl but claimed that she seduced him into the act.
The Director-General of the agency, Hajia Mariam Kolo who presided over the case on Wednesday, March 28, 2017, said that the matter was reported to the agency by a teacher after the girl’s guardian reported to the school authority that her ward was pregnant for Malam Kuyizhi.
Hajia Kolo said that the agency, after receiving the report, sent an invitation letter to the accused to come and defend himself, adding that the case would be transferred to the state police Criminal Investigation Department for proper investigation.
“Already, the victim has been taken to the hospital for medical examination; we shall make sure she gets justice. The girl said that the accused had sex with her three times in his office.
She further said that she was always given between N50 and N100 for her transport, after the affair with the teacher,” Hajia Kolo said.
She added that the minor confessed that the teacher gave her some abortion pills after she informed him of the pregnancy, but that she threw them away but after much pressure, she had to take the pills when they were offered to her a second time.
According to Kolo, the girl experienced severe pains after taking the pills, forcing her to inform her guardian.
While pleading for leniency, Kuyizhi admitted to the sexual affair, adding that though he penetrated the girl, but did not release semen into her and could not, therefore, be responsible for the pregnancy but however, promised to take responsibility for the pregnancy.
