A primary school teacher arrested for allegedly defiling a 12- year- old female pupil, has said the child only sucked his manhood.
The suspect, Enilolobo Olamilekan, a teacher with one of the private schools in Ikotun, area of Lagos State said: “I swear with my life, I did not sleep with her. I only forced her to suck my penis.”
Olamilekan told Daily Sun at the police headquarters, Ikeja that, “I am her teacher. I taught her in the school, before her mother contracted me to take her on private lesson. When I resumed lesson, I told her to come with two books, but she came with only one.
“I gave her assignment, but said she didn’t come with the book for the work. I instructed her to tell her mother to buy the book for the assignment.
“The next day, she came to school and still didn’t buy the book and I told her to wait for me in another class.
“After the class, I took her to a nearby shop and bought the notebook for her. After, she said she was hungry and I bought her biscuit as she said she was hungry. It was at that time that I started feeling for her. I was having a sexual urge.
“I later took her to my house and I asked her to sit down. I pulled down my trousers and inserted my manhood into her mouth. She started sucking it
“While I was in the act, I sighted my younger brother who was on his way back from school, I quickly asked her to stop .
“The girl went home and reported me to her parents. The next day, the parents came to the school to report that I was molesting her.
“ I denied raping her, they still took her and ran tests on her and discovered that I didn’t penetrate. They accused me of rape,but,I didn’t rape her,I only asked her to suck my penis and that is all. It is not really what I should do as a teacher, but, I don’t know what came over me,” he said.
The Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), Dolapo Badmos, said the suspect would be charged with indecent assault.
