A 17-year-old twin on Wednesday 17, April 2019 told a Lagos Special Offence Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos – how her school principal, Samson Adeyemo was having s3xual intercourse with her and impregnated her.
The 30-year old defendant, Adeyemo who is the prinicipal of a school located in Beckley Estate Abule Egba is standing trial for allegedly having s3xual intercourse with the victim and her twin sister, while they were SS1 students of the school.
While being led in evidence by the State prosecutor, M. S Oshodi, the 17-year-old twins (name withheld) told the court that the principal lured them to his office on separate occasions, had sexual intercourse with them, until one of them got pregnant.
She however said, she aborted the pregnancy through the help of her mother, who took her to a nurse.
According to her: “The school principal kept a camp bed inside his office which he used whenever he wants to have sex.
“I was still in SS1 when the incident happened. On that day, I was in my classroom when the principal entered and asked if my class teacher was around. I said no. He then ordered me to follow him to his office.
“When we got to his office, he started calling me sweet names before removing my school uniform. He thereafter had sexual intercourse with me and instructed me not to tell anyone.
“He continued having sex with me over a long period of time until I became pregnant. “I didn’t even know that I was pregnant until one of our neighbors noticed some changes in my body and informed my mother.
“It was my neighbour that found out and told my mother. When my mother confronted me with a slap, I immediately told her that the principal has been having sex with me inside his office.
“My mum immediately called the principal and asked him, and he admitted impregnating me. He then told my mother that we should keep the baby but my mother refused.
“The principal begged my mother not to abort the pregnancy but she refused and took me to a nurse to remove it. My mother told him that she cannot allow me carry a baby, at a tender age.
“As a result of the abortion, my parents withdrew me from the school and enrolled me at the defendant’s father’s school, where I wrote my WAEC exams,” the victim said.
