Queens College sets up panel to investigate alleged sexual harassment

22 March 2016, 11:26

Lagos - The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of Queens College, Lagos, said in Lagos on Monday that it had 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.

According to online report, the teacher is said to have sexually harassed a JSS II student of the school.

The report claimed the teacher was usually drunk, and started molesting the girl who screamed and was rescued by some of the girls, booing him.

The student’s mother alleged that she reported the case to the House Mistress who confirmed the teacher was in the habit of doing such and there was nothing anyone could do to him.

She alleged that the case was also reported to the Vice Principal but she said the teacher would not be allowed to leave the school. That instead, her daughter would leave.

Akhetuanen said no parent had reported any sexual harassment to the principal or vice principal and that the teacher was not living in the school.

The PTA chairman, however, pleaded with the aggrieved parent to come forth so that the case could be looked into.

”The so-called parent has not shown herself, all efforts to get her has proved abortive.

“When I tried calling the number I saw on the report, she did not pick her call”, she said.

Earlier, the SSS III students were seen protesting, saying that the accused had been set up by someone and was unjustly accused.
