A teacher in a private secondary school in the Igbala area of Sango Ota, Ogun State, identified as Matthew Sodeke, has been arrested by the State Police Command for allegedly assaulting a 16-year-old male student in one of the classes after school hours.

Punch reports that Sodeke who teaches English Language in the school, was caught by a parent who had gone to the school to pick up her child, while he was sucking on the private part of the student identified as Ajala and reported the matter to the school authority leading to the suspect's arrest.

It was gathered that after the close of school on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, Sodeke had sent for Ajala to see him in one of the offices and when the boy got there, the teacher ordered him to pull down his trouser and he proceeded to suck his manhood.

The parent, while looking for her child, was shocked at the strange sight and raised the alarm and Sodeke and the boy were apprehended. The abuse was reported to the Sango Police Division and the teacher was arrested.

A parent, identified as Shokoya, who witnessed the sordid sight, said Sodeke was beaten up by a mob before she was rescued by the police, adding that the student confessed that the teacher had been in habit of sucking his private parts on several occasions before that day. “The teacher was caught while molesting the boy after school hours. He could not deny it because he was caught in the act.

After a parent had raised the alarm, other parents and youths descended on the teacher and beat him to a pulp. He was thereafter handed over to the police at the Sango Division.

The police PRO, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect has been transfered to State Department of Criminal Investigation, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for further investigation, after which he will be charged to court. “It is a case of indecent assault. The English Language teacher, Sodeke, called the victim to one of the offices and asked him to remove his trousers. He then put Ajala’s private parts in his mouth.

Sighhhh....the things that happen in this world though
