The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, Kanayo Uzuegbu, has ordered the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (State CID) Enugu, to investigate and ensure the prosecution of everyone involved in the sexual molestation of a three-year-old female pupil of Tenderlink School Trans-Ekulu, Enugu.
A preliminary investigation proves that the child (names withheld) was found to have been sexually molested, with physical injuries and patches of blood observed on her private part, after the school bus dropped her at home on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.
This is in addition to the receipt of similar complaints by parents of other children at the school.
Three suspects, comprising the victim’s female teacher, the school’s bus attendant and driver, have been arrested for interrogation.
The Commissioner described the act as unthinkable and wondered why the school’s authority and teachers would allow such to happen to the toddler they are supposed to tutor and protect from such an ungodly act.
He appreciated the Enugu State Government’s decision to shut down the school pending the conclusion of the investigation while vowing to ensure that everyone found culpable faces the full wrath of the law.
