Gunmen shoot teacher dead in Lagos

A member of staff of the Army Children Senior High School in Epe, Lagos, Handed Sa’heed, has been shot dead in Lagos.

The deceased popularly called ‘World Morgan, was the school’s Biology teacher and Registra.

He was reportedly shot dead at about 7.10pm, last Friday, in his shop  in Poka, Epe area of Lagos.

The Muslim Teachers Association of Nigeria, MUTAN Epe,  which condemned the  murder of  Sa’heed, called on the Lagos State Government and the Lagos State Police Command to unearth the circumstance surrounding the death and bring the culprits to book. 

Describing late Sa’heed as a hard-working teacher, the association in a statement issued this night, said his murder ” is signalling that the teaching profession is unsafe and being rubbished, as noble teachers have now become endangered species in the state”.

The statement reads: “The late Hameed Sa’heed  was  reportedly shot several times and stabbed by alleged unknown boys/youths.

“Following this development, MUTAN EPE calls on the police and other relevant security agencies to ensure that the culprits are apprehended through a careful and speedy investigation and all brought to justice.

“The Lagos State Government should also put necessary and drastic measures in place to avert reoccurrence of this kind as schools are preparing for inter-house sports and first term examinations. Teaching profession is a noble one that must be respected at all times.

“As we sympathize with his loved ones, we equally pray to Allah to grant everyone the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss”.Efforts to get the reactions of spokes persons for the Army and the Lagos State Police Command failed as of time of writing this report.  Vanguardngr


I wanted to commit suicide in police detention says Teacher arraigned for sexual assault

A teacher who works in the Lagos State Civil Service, Ajayi Akintunde, has narrated how he almost committed suicide while in police detention after one of his female students accused him of forcefully making her perform oral sex on him.    


The PUNCH Online had on March 27, 2019, published the story of an 18-year-old female student, Mary (not real name), of Fazir-I-Omar Senior High School in Iwaya area of Yaba, Lagos State, alleging that Akintunde made her perform oral sex on him in order to pass his subject.

The publication titled, ‘My teacher forced me to perform oral sex for marks –Lagos schoolgirl,’ detailed how Mary, an 18-year-old Abia State indigene who lived in Makoko, said she succumbed to pressure to perform oral sex twice on Akintunde, who taught Mathematics in the school.    


After the story was published, the Lagos State Police arrested the suspect, who was arraigned on April 4 at the Samuel Ilori Court, Ogba, Lagos.

Delivering her judgment, the Chief Magistrate, Mrs YO Aje-Afunwa, ruled that there was no prima facie case of “indecent treatment of a child and sexual assault by penetration” against Akintunde – contrary to the prosecution’s complaint.    


“The suspect, Ajayi Akintunde, is hereby accordingly discharged,” Aje-Afunwa ruled.

After the ruling, Akintunde, learnt to have initially been suspended by the state Ministry of Education, was redeployed to another school.

Speaking to our correspondent, Akintunde said he almost committed suicide while in custody prior to the June 13 ruling.


The teacher, who said the victim accused him of the act because he was too strict and flogged her on different occasions, said he had since simmered down.

“I am no longer strict unlike before. I have left the aspect of discipline to the school principal and parents. It’s not my job again. I only go to class and teach. Even if a student refuses to write notes, I won’t force them,” he said. (Punch)
