Student Narrates How School Principal Had Sex With Her In His Office
It was a terrible day for Mr. Samson Adeyemo when a 17-year-old twin told a Lagos Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos – how her school Samson Adeyemo was having sexual intercourse with her and got her pregnant.
According to the prosecution, the defendant committed the alleged offence sometime in 2016.
The 30-year old defendant, Adeyemo who is the principal of a school located in Beckley Estate Abule Egba is standing trial for allegedly having sexual intercourse with the victim and her twin sister, while they were SS1 students of the school.
According to her:
“The school principal kept a camp bed inside his office which he used whenever he wants to have sex.
“I was still in SS1 when the incident happened. On that day, I was in my classroom when the principal entered and asked if my class teacher was around. I said no. He then ordered me to follow him to his office.
“When we got to his office, he started calling me sweet names before removing my school uniform. He thereafter had sexual intercourse with me and instructed me not to tell anyone.
“He continued having sex with me over a long period of time until I became pregnant. “I didn’t even know that I was pregnant until one of our neighbors noticed some changes in my body and informed my mother.
“It was my neighbour that found out and told my mother. When my mother confronted me with a slap, I immediately told her that the principal has been having sex with me inside his office.
“My mum immediately called the principal and asked him, and he admitted impregnating me. He then told my mother that we should keep the baby but my mother refused.
“The principal begged my mother not to abort the pregnancy but she refused and took me to a nurse to remove it. My mother told him that she cannot allow me carry a baby, at a tender age.
“It was when my mother insisted on terminating the pregnancy that the principal now gave us money for the abortion. So I aborted the pregnancy.
“As a result of the abortion, my parents withdrew me from the school and enrolled me at the defendant’s father’s school, where I wrote my WAEC exams,”
