Chrisland School

Four teachers of Chrisland School in Lagos have been arraigned for allegedly concealing a sex tape involving one of the school’s students.

The teachers — three male and a female — were docked on Tuesday at a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The police charged Oladotun Sotunde, 56; Elesho Tajudeen; 32, Rhoda Olanipekun; 45, and Ajigboye Hammed, 41, with two counts of conspiracy and attempt to pervert justice.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Yetunde Cardoso, the police officer in charge of the legal department at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, appeared with Augustine Nwabuisi for the prosecution.

Cardoso said the defendants committed the offence on April 25, at Chrisland School, in Victoria Garden City, Idimu, Lagos.

The police officer said the defendants were asked to chaperone the students to Dubai for a world school game.

According to her, the students engaged in indecent sexual acts while on the trip, and a 10-year-old student made a sex tape which the teachers allegedly conspired to conceal.

She said the teachers allegedly obstructed the course of justice by hiding the indecent acts of the students’ sex video before it later went viral.

The offence, she said, contravene the provisions of 411 and 97 (1) (3) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015 (revised).

Section 97 provides seven years imprisonment for the offence of attempting to pervert justice while Section 411 provides two years for conspiracy.

Adeola Adedayo, the chief magistrate, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N300,000 each with three responsible sureties each in like sum.

She held that the sureties must submit copies of their National Identification Number (NIN), and their Lagos State Residents Registration Agency (LASRRA) card.

She further directed that one of the sureties must be a landowner, but all of them must be residing within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of three years of tax payment to the Lagos government.

Adebayo ruled that the case file be duplicated and sent to the Lagos directorate of public prosecution (DPP) for legal advice and she adjourned the case until June 13 for mention.

Thugs allegedly loyal to Governor Wike attack Rivers PDP presidential campaign boss’ residence, destroy vehicles

Political thugs allegedly working for the Rivers state governor, Mr Nyesom Wike have invaded the residence of former Rivers South-East Senator, Lee Maeba.

The house located at GRA, Phase 3 axis in Port Harcourt, Rivers State was invaded by thugs on Thursday morning.

Maeba is the chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in the state.

A source said the hoodlums, allegedly loyal to Governor Wike, destroyed many cars, including an SUV, while occupants of the house including Senator Maeba’s relations fled the scene.

It was learnt that the hoodlums also shot indiscriminately and injured some occupants of the building during the attack.

“About 200 hoodlums loyal to Governor Wike attacked the residence of Senator Lee Maeba this morning. They destroyed vehicles and injured some occupants,” the source said.

Since Governor Wike lost the presidential ticket of the party to the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the party has been factionalised.

This followed allegations made by the governor that the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu manipulated the process to favour Atiku, a fellow northerner.

He subsequently asked Ayu to resign from office but the national chairman has refused to do so amid the attendant crisis in the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The Wike-led Rivers government earlier revoked the ownership of a landed property belonging to Maeba in Port Harcourt.

When contacted, DSP Grace Woyengikuro Iringe-Koko, spokesperson for the state police command said she wasn’t aware of the incident.
