A primary school teacher is being investigated for defilement of 14 pupils in Niger State.
Usman Galadima, a grade two teacher of Central Primary School Karabonde, Niger state also allegedly threatened his victims with death if they revealed his misdeed.
However, some Galadima’s accusers dared to report their experiences. The school management escalated the matter.
Galadima was said to have owned up to the crime while appearing before a disciplinary committee set up by the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB). More students had reportedly stepped forward to make similar accusations against Galadima.
The Education Board has suspended the affected teacher. Idris Kolo, SUBEB-Niger State spokesperson Galadima is now before the Child Rights Protection Agency.
“The accused is presently with Child Right Protection Agency. We have to move him from Borgu to Minna to save his life from mob action by parents and families of the victims. They are all furious over what he did to their daughters.
” The management of SUBEB has suspended him because, what he did cannot be swept under the carpet by anyone. The state Governor, Alh. Abubakar Sani Bello is not happy with the development,” said Idris.
