The Lagos State Government has taken swift action by shutting down the Greater Scholars International School in the Ajah area of the state.
This decision was made in response to the reported defilement of a four-year-old pupil by the school’s security guard, David James, on April 27, 2023, under the pretext of cleaning her.
The accused, David James, a 23-year-old security guard, has been arraigned and remanded for the offence. He appeared before Mrs B.O. Osunsanmi of Magistrate’s Court 1, Ogba, on a charge of s£x¥al a§§ault.
A protest was recently held at the school gate as concerned individuals, including friends, family members & representatives of NGOs, demanded justice for the child and the closure of the school. Recent pictures circulating online reveal that the Lagos State Ministry of Education has sealed the school in response to the incident.
The ongoing court case is set to resume on September 4, 2023.
