Ogun teacher rapes two students within 24 hours

A secondary school teacher, Lateef Olaniran, has been arrested over alleged rape of two young ladies within 24 hours in Ogun state.

A statement issued by the State Commissioner for Women Affairs, Adijat Adeleye, on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 indicated this.

The statement further indicated that Olaniran is a native of Ipokia Local Government Area of Ogun State, a Mathematics teacher at Ebenezer Grammar School, Iberekodo, Abeokuta, and an employee of the Ogun State Teaching Service Commission with the number, OGNO.30650.


Adeleye disclosed that the randy teacher was arrested on Saturday when a member of her team got a call from a young lady reporting that a man had raped her.

The Commissioner said the Ministry swung into action and located the victim, who she said was taken to a laboratory for different tests before she was later led to the police station to make a report.

“We thereafter went with the police to the accused home but after several knocks, he refused to open the gate. We were able to locate the brother to the house owner who assisted us in gaining access to the compound,” she stated.

She added that when.they got into the compound of the suspect, “we heard a girl’s cry for help, and with the support of the police, we caught Mr. Olaniran Lateef Adewale, a secondary school mathematics teacher at Ebenezer Grammar School Iberekodo, Abeokuta.”

The Commissioner said the girl crying in the teacher’s room during his arrest also accused him of “forcibly having sexual intercourse with her and threatening to kill her if she does not ask her family to send him money.”

The suspect who was later seen in a video weeping in handcuffs, begged for leniency from the commissioner.

Meanwhile, Adeleye said the suspect has been remanded at the Ogun State Police Command Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta for further investigations.
