Ebenezer Olawuyi, a 30-year-old schoolteacher, has been arrested for sodomizing two of his male students, according to the Oyo State Police Command.
On Thursday, April 22, Olawuyi, a private school teacher, was paraded alongside other crime suspects at the police headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan, by State Police Commissioner Ngozi Onadeko.
The perpetrator, who has a Nigerian Certificate of Education (NCE), admitted to the crime but said that he only slept with two male students.
According to Olawuyi, the first incident occurred when he welcomed the student to his home, ostensibly to assist him in marking examination scripts.
“I just did it twice,” she says. They’re my pupils. On two separate occasions, I had sex through the anus with one of two of my students. I don’t have a wife. I work as a primary school teacher in a private school. When I slept with the second victim in the classroom before school hours, I summoned the last victim to my house to assist me in collating scripts “he said
When asked how he managed to persuade them not to tell their parents, Olawuyi, who claimed to have had girlfriends in school, said:
“When I told them I wanted to have sex with them, they didn’t object. They are both between the ages of 11 and 14 years old. I advised them not to tell their parents because it would be detrimental to their welfare.”
He also said that he was concerned about the situation prior to his arrest because he didn’t know what had led him to it.
“I believe it is the devil; I don’t know what brought me here; I just lost my father last week; I want the government to assist me,” he said.
