Nathaniel Idoko, the headmaster in charge of Migrant Farmers Children School, located in Aguibeji community, Enugu-Ezike, has been arrested by the police in Enugu State for allegedly defiling four female pupils of the school.
He was said to have, on July 17, 2018, taken the four students, aged between five and six years, to a bush near the school and abused them sexually.
The Enugu state police PRO, Ebere Amaraizu, revealed that the act occurred during school hours, adding that the suspect had allegedly “used his fingers on the private parts of the four female pupils, which inflicted serious injuries on them, making them walk abnormally.”
The headmaster was exposed when one of the abused pupils told her parents. “This led to the arrest of the headmaster who in response, regretted his actions and blamed it on Satan.
He said he did not know why he did what he did, adding that he has seen that he did not achieve anything doing what he did,” Amaraizu said. The four victims involved are being treated by doctors.
“My wife is not happy with me over this incident. I am begging my wife, the parents of the children and God to forgive me,’’ Amaraizu quoted the suspect as pleading.
