Police arrest 8 year old pupil in Ogun state for the most incredible reason!

 
Eight-year-old pupil of Prospect Primary
School, Akute, Ogun State, Oyindamola Onimole, has been detained by the
Ajuwon Police Division.

Punch newspaper reports that  Oyindamola, who was
held by the police between 6pm on Wednesday and 12pm on Thursday, was
arrested by a policeman from the station for reporting a teacher in the
school, identified simply as Mrs. Oni, to his mother.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Oni,
who is the wife of one of the policemen at the station, had maltreated
Oyindamola at school and the pupil reported her to his mother, Mrs.
Nimota Onimole, who subsequently stormed the school and complained about
the assault.
After the mother left, the teacher was said to have descended on the child again for daring to report her to his mother.
A source in the school said, “After
school hours, the teacher called her husband and he stormed the house of
the pupil and arrested the minor.
“When Mrs. Onimole (Nimota) returned
from work about 10pm, neighbours told her about the ordeal of her son.
She left for the police station to ascertain what had happened. The
mother, who went to the police station to bail her child, was also
detained.”
Oyindamola’s father, Olalekan Omole, confirmed on Thursday that his wife and son were detained by the police.
He said, “At about 6.30pm, the teacher and her policeman husband, went to our house and forcibly took my son. They used okada (motorcycle) to pick my son.
“When my wife returned about 10pm and
got to the station around 10.30pm, requesting to get her child released,
she was equally detained at the station. All this happened because of
the influence of the teacher, whose husband happened to be a policeman
at the station.
“My two remaining children slept alone
at home that night. I had to consult a lot of people to wade in and get
justice for my family.
“But today (Thursday), at about 12pm, my son and my wife were released by the police.”
Olalekan, who expressed outrage at the detention of the minor, said he would contact his lawyer to take the matter up.
Oyindamola’s father added that he had informed the school proprietor about Mrs. Oni’s alleged misconduct.
