Court remands FGGC Oyo teacher for defiling 14-year-old student

Alayoteti Oyebode, a teacher, has been sentenced to be held at the Abolongo Correctional Centre after a family court in Ibadan, Oyo State, ruled that he defiled a 14-year-old student in his school.

Oyebode, 49, was charged by the Oyo State Police Command on a single count with having illicit sex with a Federal Government Girls College student in Oyo.

According to the prosecutor, Insp. Folake Ewe, the offense was committed between November 2021 and May 2022 by the defendant.

The girl was first molested by the defendant while she was a junior in high school (JSS). said Insp. Ewe.

At the resumed hearing of the matter on Thursday, August 4, counsel to the accused, Barrister Oluponna Tunde, said the accused was charged with rape rather than defilement of the child.

Meanwhile, the Investigating Police Officer in charge of the case, Kehinde Afolabi, from the Oyo state criminal investigation department, Iyaganku told the court that the prosecuting counsel never brought a rape case before the court, rather a case involving a minor which is purely defilement.

The court urged the prosecuting counsel to do further investigation on the allegation against the school teacher and return to the court on the adjourned date to substantiate its claims that the accused defiled the student.

Justice Adetunyibi consequently ordered that the accused be remanded at the Abolongo correctional centre and adjourned the matter till August 18, 2022, for hearing.
