The vice principal of Government Day Secondary School, Tunga-Minna in Niger State, Mohammed Kuyizhi, has appeared before the state’s Child Rights Protection Agency, over the pregnancy of a 16-year-old student.

Mr Kuyizhi is accused of impregnating the girl, who is a junior student in the school.

Mariam Kolo, the director-general of the agency, who presided over the case on Wednesday in Minna, said the matter was reported to the agency by a teacher, after the girl’s guardian informed the school that her ward was pregnant for the teacher.

Ms Kolo said the agency, after receiving the report, sent an invitation letter to the accused to come and defend himself.

She said the case would be transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.

“Already, the victim has been taken to the hospital for medical examination; we shall make sure she gets justice,” she said.

Ms Kolo quoted the victim as telling the agency that the accused was a very close friend to her guardian and had consistently visited their (victim’s) home.

“The girl also said that the accused had sex with her three times in his office.

“She further said that she was always given between N50 and N100 for her transport, after the affair with the teacher,” Ms Kolo said.

The director-general further quoted the minor as accusing the teacher of giving her some pills after she informed him of the pregnancy, but that she threw them away.

She said the girl, however, confessed to taking the pills when they were offered to her a second time.

According to Ms Kolo, the girl experienced severe pains after taking the pills, forcing her to inform her guardian.

Mr Kuyizhi admitted to the sexual affair, but claimed that the girl seduced him into the act.

He also told the agency that he penetrated the girl, but did not release semen and could not, therefore, be responsible for the pregnancy.

Mr Kuyizhi, however, pleaded with the agency for leniency and promised to take responsibility for the pregnancy.
