24 March 2016, 06:29

Lagos - The federal government on Tuesday set up a committee to investigate the alleged sexual assault of a JSS 2 female student of Queen’s College, Yaba, Lagos by a male teacher in the secondary school.

Olaseni Oshifala, a biology teacher at Queen’s College, was accused by a parent, Chinenye Okoye, of making sexual advances at the girl by kissing and touching her private parts.

A statement by the Deputy Director, Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Goong, said: “Worried by the development, the Minister of State for Education Prof. Anthony Anwuka, constituted a five-man panel on Tuesday, which he also dispatched immediately to the college.

“The panel, whose members’ identities were concealed by the minister, is to unravel the veracity of the allegations levelled against the teacher.”

He charged members of the panel to do a thorough investigation to unravel the truth behind the allegations as well as make recommendations to government on how to deal with the situation based on the principles of truth, justice and fairness to all parties.

The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of Queens College had also on Monday set up a panel to investigate alleged sexual harassment in the school.

Chairman of the PTA, Beatrice Akhetuanen, told a news conference that the panel would be working with the Police Station in Sabo, Yaba to investigate the teacher said to be perpetrating the act.
