The Lagos State Police Command has began the investigation into the alleged molestation of a four-year-old pupil of the University of Lagos Women Society Nursery and Primary School, Akoka, Lagos.

Report has it that the suspect, Abiodun Matthew, was a driver employed by the management of the University of Lagos Women Society Nursery and Primary School

Further report has it that he was close to one of the teachers identified as Charity Madumere who sometimes left the pupils in his care.

However, it was indeed in one of such cases when Madumere left her class in his care that he allegedly molested the kindergarten pupil.

The father of the victim identified as Mr. Ade, who is a lecturer at UNILAG, stated that he had noticed the closeness of the driver to the teacher and complained to the school authorities.

Mr Ade claimed that his warning was ignored until his daughter became a victim of the child molestation.

Mr Ade said in a statement:

“Obviously, this guy had been hanging out in the class for a long time, but I noticed recently and I felt that it was dangerous. I complained through the communications book, which serves as a link between the parents and the school. I expressed concern about having a man in the midst of innocent children.

“The class teacher, after being spoken to by her supervisor, told the man to stay away. But after the heat had gone down, the man resumed sitting with the children. At times, I met him alone with the pupils in the class where they were kept before pick-up by their parents or guardians.”

The heartbroken father said his fear became more intense when his daughter complained of difficulty passing urine, stressing that when he confronted her, she did not say anything.

Further statement from Mr Ade read:

“On Sunday, March 24, 2019, she told her elder sister, who is six-year-old, that she experienced pain when she urinated. The sister told me and I asked her if anybody had touched her in her private parts, but she did not tell me anything.

“She confided in the sister that it was one uncle Biodun, who had been touching her. We were just settling down for breakfast when I heard it. Immediately, I lost my appetite. Blood rushed to my brain. I knelt down and prayed to God to help me control my anger, so that I would not do anything untoward.

“I called the head teacher and she said I should see her on Monday. I took my daughter to the UNILAG medical centre for tests and I was told that the hymen was gone and there were abrasions and lacerations in her private parts. Last Friday, we went to the Mirabel Centre, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, for thorough tests and the revelations were more damning.

He was not only using his penis, but he had also been using sticks and biros. Gas was oozing out of my daughter’s private parts when a doctor examined her.”

Meanwhile, Confirming the incident was the Lagos state police command spokesperson identified as DSP Bala Elkana. He stated that the state commissioner of police, Zubairu Muazu, has since directed that the case is transferred to the Gender Unit of the command for further investigation to be carried out.
