The Niger State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) has suspended a Grade Two teacher of Central Primary School Karabonde in Borgu, Alhaji Usman Galadima, for allegedly defiling 14 pupils of the school.
The Head Mistress, Maimunat Tanko, disclosed that some of the victims mustered courage and narrated the incident to her and she went ahead to report the issue to the Head Master, Mallam Abdullahi Toure.
Galadima, who has been confirmed HIV positive, confessed to sexually molesting some pupils of the school and threatening to kill them should they reveal what he did to them.
It was gathered that the school reported the issue to the social welfare department of Borgu LGA on August 25, 2021, which prompted the Education Secretary of the Council to set up a panel to investigate the incident.
It was gathered that Galadima appeared before the committee and confessed to the crime, during its meeting.
The board spokesperson, Idirs Kolo, stated that the accused is in the custody of the Child Right Protection Agency to prevent the parents and families of the victims from beating him to death.
“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 I 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,” he said. (Daily Independent)
