Henry Amaechi, a 29-year old school teacher who is reported to have had intercourse with a 16-year-old SS1 student (name withheld) has said his own story.
Henry said the 16-year-old girl came to his house for extra lessons but rather she tempted him and this prompted him to go down with her.
The teacher said the girl purposely opened her legs wide and he could see her private part he was then urged to engage her in a sex romp.
He continued saying the victim was ready for the romp, she enjoyed it and pleaded with him that he should get married to her and he promised to do so.
Mr Amaechi is a teacher at a popular school in Igando but stays at Olu Apare Street in Ejigbo, Lagos, where the victim reportedly went for extra lessons before the romp took place.
After the romp, the victim missed her period and suspected that she was pregnant this led to her informing her parents that she had slept with her teacher. She equally informed her parents that her teacher had promised to marry her.
Her pissed off dad took swift action as he reported the matter at the Igando Police Division. Amaechi was arrested and detained for about two weeks in the police cell without bail.
On Tuesday, he was brought to the Ejigbo Magistrates Court and arraigned for having sexual intercourse with the victim but he pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Inspector Simon Njue, informed the Court that it was a case of defilement which required the advice of the DPP. Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mr L.K.J Layeni, ordered that the defendant, Amaechi, be remanded in prison custody. He also directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.
The matter was adjourned till 14th August 2019.
