The area commander in Agbor, according to a police spokesperson, verified that the event occurred two weeks ago and that the suspect was apprehended, but he rejected the claim.
The proprietor of Great Leaders International School in Agbor-Obi has been taken into custody, according to the Delta State Command of the Nigerian Police Force, on suspicion of raping a four-year-old female student.
An X (formerly Twitter) user, Rich Aunty Amina (@EverythingMai_), had posted about the alleged rape.
Amina said the suspect identified as the principal of the school “used scissors to tear her up so he can fit inside her!”
Amina further alleged, “She (the girl) came back from school complaining to her mom that she was feeling pains, the mom checked her and saw blood clots coming from the child’s vagina!
“The man’s lawyer is currently telling the mom that they should just settle her and her daughter.”
Reacting to the post, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, initially said that the police were not aware of the incident and that they were waiting for an official report from the family.
However, in an updated reaction to the matter, the police spokesperson said that the Area Commander in Agbor confirmed that the incident happened two weeks ago and that the suspect was arrested but he denied the allegation.
The PPRO said, “The Area Commander just called that this incident happened two weeks ago, though the owner of the school denied it, the Area Commander Agbor and not the Division is currently handling it.
“I will revert when I get the full update, but what I am assuring us is that justice will prevail.
“However, we should avoid settlement because these days parents especially from rural areas go behind the police and collect money from suspects thereby making prosecution very difficult.”
Apologising to the X user for earlier suggesting that she posted what she was not 100% sure of, Edafe said, “@EverythingMai_ Sorry for the misunderstanding. We are all fighting for the same purpose, don’t take it personal.”
Efforts to get comments from the school failed as calls made to the phone numbers on the school’s banner were not answered.
I cant even deal rn💔
How will a grown up try to rape a 4yrz old and even use scissors to cut her so he can have his way??
