The Police Command in Ogun has arrested a 35-year-old father, Abidemi Oluwaseun, for allegedly invading a public school with thugs to attack a teacher.
The Police Spokesman in Ogun, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Ota, Ogun, that the suspect was arrested with two other persons.
He named the two other persons arrested for beating the 15-year-old daughter of Oluwaseun, as Fayesele Olabanji, 24, and Alebiosu Quawiyy, 25.
According to him, the suspects were arrested following a distress call received from the principal of Baptist Girls College, Idiaba Abeokuta, that three men invaded the school with an unregistered vehicle.
He said that they were armed with brand new cutlass and threatening to hack down a teacher of the school.
“Upon the distress call, the Divisional Police Officer, Kemta Division, CSP Opebiyi Sunday, mobilised his men and moved to the scene where the three men were apprehended right inside the school premises.
“The unregistered Toyota car and the cutlass were recovered from them.
“On interrogation, Oluwaseun confirmed hiring the other two men to the school to teach the teacher who beat his daughter a lesson of his life,” he said.
The PPRO said that preliminary investigation revealed that while the victim was teaching, some of the students including the suspect’s daughter were mocking the teacher and distracting other students.
He added that the teacher after identifying those disturbing the class caned them as a corrective measure.
But the suspect’s daughter went home and reported to her father consequent upon which her father mobilised two thugs and stormed the school with cutlass.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the suspects be properly investigated and charged to court as soon as possible.
He also warned that the command under his watch would not tolerate such unruly behaviour in any public or private institution, as such was tantamount to breaking laws.
