A suspected gay principal, Mr Modestus Eze, of the Seat of Wisdom Secondary School, Okija Ihialla Local Government Area of Ansmbra State has allegedly raped of one of his male students (name withheld) to coma.
The incident occurred on Sunday. It was reported to the police. A source said the suspect had fled the town before the arrival of the police. The source said the principal fled from his house, after residents decided to call the police.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident. He said a team of policemen was immediately dispatched to the home of the suspect, but he was found to have fled the community. Mohammed said the suspect allegedly had an unlawful carnal knowledge of the innocent student and raped him to coma
He said: “The scene of the crime was visited by police detectives attached to Okija Division and upon search, some charms and juju deities spread with red substance suspected to be fresh blood were also discovered in some isolated rooms within the school premises.
“The victim has been taken to the hospital for medical examination.” It was also learnt that rampaging youths from the community, who were irked by the action of the principal, converged on his home and threatened to burn the house. It took the intervention of the Divisional Police Officer and some eminent persons in the area to restore normalcy and pacify the youth.
The PPRO, however, said that police had intensified efforts to track down the suspect, apprehend and bring him to face the full weight of the law.
