A Magistrate court sitting in Ede, Ede North local government area of Osun State on Thursday dragged Adeojo Sodiq 20-yeras-old bricklayer for allegedly beating one Mrs Inaolaji Sadiat Adekilekun, a teacher at CAC Government Schools, Talafia Ede to a point she was hospitalized.

NSCDC Principal Inspector of Corps II Opeyemi Adebayo who is the prosecutor told the court that Sodiq and his gangs who are currently at large, on Tuesday, committed offences of assault, breach of public peace and conspiracy.

Adebayo explained that Sodiq and his accomplices stormed Mrs Adekilekun’s school and beat her mercilessly because the teacher was alleged to have disciplined the brother of the suspect (Sodiq), who reported the beating to the suspect (his brother) at home.

The accused however pleaded not guilty to the three charges leveled against him and his Defence Counsel, Prince Niran Ojekale applied for his bail in the most liberal terms.

Ojekale assured the court that suspect would not jump bail if granted, explaining that the biological father of the accused was in the court and his aunt had already volunteered to stand as surety.

The prosecutor however opposed the bail application on the grand that his command was still intensifying efforts to apprehend the accused gang who were still at large adding that the victim (Mrs Adekilekun) was still in the hospital receiving medical treatment.

Presiding Magistrate, Mrs I.O Oyebadejo in her ruling on the matter, granted Sodiq bail in the sum of N100,000 with one surety in the like sum.

Oyebadejo added that the surety must be gainfully employed and must be resident within the court jurisdiction.

She, thereafter, adjourned the case till February 18 for hearing.

Speaking on the matter, Osun State Assistance Secretary General of the Nigerian Union of Teacher, Mr. Abdulahi Muhammed said the union will not be prejudicial in the ongoing case.

Muhammed said molesting teachers has become rampant among the secondary students in Ede, noting that last year similar incident happen at Timi Agbale High School Ede

He described the incident as the higher level of rudeness and irresponsibility among the secondary school students in the town.

He, however, advised parents and traditional rulers in the ancient town to put necessary measure in place in order to curtail future reoccurrence.
