A woman who allegedly defiled a two-and-a half-year-old girl in Ilupeju area of Lagos has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.
Sources say the suspect, identified as Funmi, who is a teacher in an undisclosed nursery and primary school around Ilupeju allegedly inserted a fork into the little girl’s private part.
It was gathered that the little girl’s mother noticed when she took her daughter for a shower after she returned home from school crying. The girl’s mother knew something bad must have happened when her daughter couldn’t bear the slightest touch on her private part, and asked the girl who told her what her teacher had done.
The mother was said to have reported the case to the police, and the school’s management was informed. But all the teachers reportedly denied, saying the child might not know what she was talking about.
All the teachers in the school were said to have been subsequently paraded before the child to identify the culprit, in order to ascertain her claim. She seemed certain it was Funmi as she pointed straight at her once she sighted her, prompting her arrest.
According to police sources, the case was, Wednesday, charged to a special court after the medical test conducted on the child showed that her hymen had been broken.
Funmi however maintained her innocence.
