According to reports reaching Oyogist.com, a Government Secondary School teacher In Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State has allegedly raped a minor to death.
The suspect confessed to committing the crime before family and compound chiefs, but later on, blamed the father of the deceased for his involvement in the death of his daughter and reported the case to the Area Command of the Police in Sagbama.
The Father of the deceased, Pinaowei Gana, said the teacher took the girl to the hospital himself and later brought her back to him without the Doctors consent, before the girl died two days after.
He said: ”She kept it to herself and was bleeding little by little. About two months later, we noticed some strange smell and she complained of serious sickness. We took her to a local massage therapist and we were told that the child had been defiled and infected.
“We took her back to tell my landlord and some elders about her defilement. She confirmed it was the teacher. The teacher pleaded that I should not go to the police and that he would pay for her treatment and settle with the family.
“He (the teacher) took her to a private hospital in Opolo where he was admitted for over a week. But he came back and discharged the child without the doctor’s advice and dumped her with me. Two days later, the girl died.” Mr Gana said.
