Niger state Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB. has suspended the Grade two teacher of Central Primary School Karabonde, Borgu Local Government Area of Niger state, Alhaji Usman Galadima who allegedly defiled 14 pupils of the school.
Alh. Galadima has been accused of sexually assaulting some pupils of the school and threatening to kill them should they reveal what he did to them but some opened up to their school Head Mistress, Maimunat Tanko, who reported the matter to the Head Master, Mallam Abdullahi Toure.
The school reported the activities of the randy teacher to the social welfare department of Borgu LGA on 25th August, 2021 followed by a visit by the Education Secretary of the council to the school to ascertain the true position of the report and afterwards set up a committee to investigate the matter on 27th August, 2021 even as more girls opened up on being sexually assaulted by the same teacher.
Galadima appeared before the committee and confessed to the crime, during its meeting and the board through its Public Relations Officer, PRO, Idirs Kolo said that the accused deserves to be punished for what he did to the children and the teacher must be suspended first from work.
“The accused is presently with Child Right Protection Agency. We have to move him from Borgu to Minna to save his life from mob action by parents and families of the victims. They are all furious over what he did to their daughters.
” The management of SUBEB has suspended him because, what he did cannot be swept under the carpet by anyone. The state Governor, Alh. Abubakar Sani Bello is not happy with the development,” Idris explained.
