Teacher Rapes, Impregnates 12-Year-Old Schoolgirl In Adamawa

A 12-year-old schoolgirl who was raped by her
teacher in Namtari, Yola South Local Government
Area of Adamawa State, has been confirmed
pregnant.
The Adamawa State Commandant of the Nigerian
Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC),
Abdullahi Nuruddeen, said the teacher, Nathan
Yusuf, has been arrested for raping the minor.
“On 2nd September 2019, around 2:30 p.m., we
arrested a suspect of rape in person of Nathan
Yusuf (37) who is a teacher at Gurel primary
school in Namtari Yola south, suspected to have
raped his pupil who is below 14 years of age. He
confessed to giving her codeine syrup before
raping her.
Mr Nurudden said the suspect will be charged to
court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
“We are advising parents to be vigilant on their
children and report such crimes to the relevant
authorities for judicial action,” he said.
Bashir Tahir, a member of a non-governmental
organisation, Hope Centre, which cares for rape
victims in the state, said the group was providing
support for the girl.
“She has received all the needed support and the
medical tests required. So far she is free from all
sexually transmitted diseases. But she will start
receiving antenatal care next week at the Hope
Centre,” he said.
Mr Tahir said over 160 rape cases had been
brought to the organisation, adding that 10 of
them have been taken to court.
An uncle of the victim, Sulaiman Namtari, said the
action of the teacher came to the community as a
rude shock because the man was hitherto highly
respected in the community.
“Every member of the community reserves
tremendous respect for the teacher as he has
been in the community for years. There is no
house he doesn’t enter and every member of the
community knows him very well.
” What he did was perfidy of the highest order
and for that we want authorities not to spare
him,” Mr Namtari said.
I regret my action – suspect
While fielding questions from journalists, Mr Yusuf
expressed remorse over his action, saying he was
prodded by the devil.
He said he would take care of the baby after
delivery, adding that he will take full responsibility
for his action.
‘’ I regret my action. It was the handiwork of
Satan and i am ready to take the full
responsibility,’’ he said.
