An overzealous father has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for hiring thugs to attack a teacher.
Abidemi Oluwaseun, 35, was apprehended on Tuesday for invading Baptist Girls College, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta with two thugs to attack teacher for allegedly beating his 15-year-old daughter.
This was disclosed via a statement on Tuesday by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
According to Oyeyemi, Abidemi was arrested alongside his accomplices; Fayesele Olabanji, 25, and Alebiosu Quawiyu, 24.
The three men reportedly invaded the school with an unregistered vehicle, and threatened to hack down a teacher with a brand new cutlass.
Oyeyemi said, “Upon the distress call, the DPO, Kemta division, CSP Opebiyi Sunday, mobilised his men and moved to the scene where the three men were apprehended in the school premises. The unregistered Toyota car and the cutlass were recovered from them.
“On interrogation, Abidemi Oluwaseun confessed to hiring the other two men to the school to teach the teacher who beat his daughter a lesson of his life.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect’s daughter was beaten because while the teacher was teaching, some of the students including his daughter were mocking the teacher and distracting other students.
“The teacher after identifying those disturbing the class flogged them as a corrective measure, but the suspect’s daughter went home and reported to her farther consequent upon which her father mobilised two thugs and stormed the school with cutlasses.”
“He also warned that the command under his watch will not tolerate such unruly behaviour in any public or private institution, as such amount to taking laws into one’s hand,” the PPRO said.
