A Fine Art teacher, Chukwu Ndubuisi, of Mind Builders School, Omole, was arraigned on Monday before a Lagos State High Court for allegedly defiling a six-year-old pupil in the school. Ndubuisi was accused of forcibly “penetrating” his victim on the school premises and infected her with a sexually transmitted disease. The accused was said to have committed the offense on October 4, 2016.
He was consequently arraigned before an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court, which granted him bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two verifiable sureties, who must be his blood relations. The accused reportedly failed to meet the bail conditions and ended spending seven months in prison. Ndubuisi was re-arraigned before a High Court judge, who equally granted him bail.
The case has been reassigned to a fresh judge, S. Ogunsanya, pending the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). It was said that the sureties provided by the accused were fake and had given non-existent addresses.
