Teacher rapes 13-year-old girl to death in Bayelsa

 A 30-year-old teacher, Promise Sylvanus Ogun, of Government Secondary School, Toroegbeni, in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, has allegedly raped a minor to death.


The suspect was said to have owned up to the rape before family and compound chiefs and allegedly paid the deceased hospital bill at a private hospital in Opolo area of Yenagoa, the state capital.

However, the suspect allegedly made a U-turn by accusing the father of the deceased of a threat to life before the Area Command of the Police in Sagbama.

It was gathered that the civil society organisation and girl child advocacy groups in the state including the Girl Response Initiative Team set up by the wife of the state Governor, Mrs. Gloria Diri, and the DO Foundation led by Dise Ogbise-Erhisere are planning to visit the State Police Commissioner, Mike Okoli, to demand proper investigation and arrest of the alleged rapist.

The civil society groups are angered by the fact that instead of investigating the alleged rape and death of the 13-year-old girl, they are busy summoning the deceased father over the trumped-up charges of the alleged threat to life by the accused teacher.

Investigation revealed that the deceased teenager, sometime in March 2020 was waylaid and molested by the waterside in Ogoibiri community of Sagbama where she had gone to take her bath and allegedly raped twice by the suspected teacher.

The Father of the deceased, Pinaowei Gana, said the girl did not report she was violated and raped by them.
