An Ikeja Magistrate’s Court sitting in Ogba has ordered that a 34-year-old teacher at a school in Lagos, Quaseem Olayiwola, be remanded prison custody for alleged defilement of his pupil.

Olayiwola reportedly had unlawful sex with the 14-year-old pupil which made the girl pregnant and was arraigned before Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsami on a count charge of defilement.

It was learnt that the father of the victim reported the incident to the police at the Ayobo Police Division and the teacher was arrested.

The preliminary investigation conducted by the police revealed that Olayiwola committed the indecent act between October 2018 and January 2019 in a hotel.

He was said to have been transferred to the Gender Unit of the Lagos State Police Command in Ikeja for further investigation.

A police prosecutor, Inspector Donny Raphael, who brought Olayiwola before the court on Thursday, said the offence was punishable under Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The charge read, “That you, Quaseem Olayiwola ‘M’, between October 2018 and January 2019 at Olubar Hotel C&S area, Ayobo, Lagos in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully defile a 14-year-old girl by having intercourse with her and impregnating her. You thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.”

The defendant’s plea was not taken by the presiding Chief Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsami.

Osunsanmi ordered that Olayiwola be remanded in prison custody pending the outcome of legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions on the matter.
