A nursery and primary school teacher , Akorede Hammed , was on Tuesday arraigned before a Kwara State Family Court , Ilorin, for allegedly sexually molesting a seven – year- old pupil of his school in the Oyun area of Ilorin , the state capital .
Hammed was brought before Magistrate Shade Lawal on allegation of gross indecency contrary to Section 285 of the Penal Code Law .
The police first information report revealed that the minor narrated how she was allegedly molested by the teacher .
The police report also stated that the victim ’ s father wrote a complaint to the Area Command Metro , Ilorin .
According to the report , the father said Hammed took his daughter to a toilet and locked her up .
He added that the teacher removed her pants and molested her with his fingers .
“ Police investigation revealed that Hammed , who was the victim ’ s Yoruba teacher , absconded from the school to an unknown place until he was later seen and arrested by detectives of the area command , ” the report said .
The proceeding was , however , stalled following the absence of the victim in court , as the magistrate insisted that the pupil, who attended His Grace Nursery /Primary School , be physically present before the matter could go on .
The matter was adjourned till September 16 , 2020 .
