The principal of Hassanat Islamic College, identified simply as Prosper, has gone into hiding after allegedly defiling seven female pupils of the school around Tanke, in the Ilorin South Local Government Area of Kwara State.
It was gathered that Prosper, who had been allegedly defiling the pupils for a while, usually used his influence as the principal of the school to threaten them against informing anyone.
Traumatised by the illicit act, one of the pupils, who could no longer cope with the principal’s action, confided in one of the teachers of the school.
In a bid to acquire concrete evidence linking Prosper to the crime, the teacher alongside other teachers of the school, commenced an investigation and were able to get other affected pupils to narrate their ordeals in his hands.
During the investigation which took place between April and July 2022, the voice notes and erotic WhatsApp messages that Prosper sent to these minors were obtained.
Speaking with newsmen, one of the teachers said investigation revealed that the principal also allegedly perpetrated the crime at one of the victim’s parent’s house.
The teacher said the case was reported to the police but Prosper absconded after discovering about the internal investigation.
