Men of the Ogun State Police Command on Tuesday arrested one Abidemi Oluwaseun for invading a public school with thugs to attack a teacher who he accused of beating his 15 years old daughter.
The suspect was arrested with two others namely: Fayesele Olabanji and Alebiosu Quawiyu, following a distress call received from the principal of Baptist Girls College Idiaba Abeokuta, 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.
Upon the distress call, the DPO Kemta Division, Opebiyi Sunday, mobilized his men and moved to the scene where the three men were apprehended right inside the school premises.
The unregistered Toyota car and the cutlass were recovered from them.
On interrogation, Oluwaseun confirmed hiring the other two men to the school to teach the teacher who beat his daughter a lesson.
Preliminary investigation revealed that, while the teacher was teaching, some of the students including the suspect’s daughter were mocking the teacher and distracting other students.
The teacher after identifying those disturbing the class beat them as a corrective measure, but the suspect’s daughter went home and reported to her father consequent upon which her father mobilized two thugs and stormed the school with a cutlass.
Meanwhile, 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 behavior in any public or private institution, as such amounts to taken laws into one’s hand.
