A 35-year-old man, Abidemi Oluwaseun has been arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for hiring thugs to attack a teacher for beating his 15-year-old daughter.
Oluwaseun reportedly invaded Baptist Girls College, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta with two thugs on Tuesday to attack a teacher who he accused of beating his daughter.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP, Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed this on Tuesday in a statement.
Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested with two others; Fayesele Olabanji, 25, and Alebiosu Quawiyu,24.
The PPRO added that the police received a distress call from the principal of the school.
Oyeyemi said the police were hinted that three men invaded the school with an unregistered vehicle, armed with brand new cutlass and threatening to hack down a teacher of the school with the cutlass.
He said, “Upon the distress call, the DPO, Kemta division, CSP Opebiyi Sunday, mobilised his men and moved to the scene where the three men were apprehended in the school premises. The unregistered Toyota car and the cutlass were recovered from them.
“On interrogation, Abidemi Oluwaseun confessed to hiring the other two men to the school to teach the teacher who beat his daughter a lesson of his life.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect’s daughter was beaten because while the teacher was teaching, some of the students including his daughter were mocking the teacher and distracting other students.
“The teacher after identifying those disturbing the class flogged them as a corrective measure, but the suspect’s daughter went home and reported to her farther consequent upon which her father mobilised two thugs and stormed the school with cutlasses.”
Oyeyemi however said the Commissioner of police, 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 will not tolerate such unruly behaviour in any public or private institution, as such amount to taking laws into one’s hand,” the PPRO said.
