The Lagos State command of the Nigeria Police has arrested a Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Esther Akpan, age 29 starving pupils by eating their meals in school.
It was gathered that Mrs. Akpan who teaches at God’s Grace And Mercy Private School, Lagos, was arrested for being in the habit of stealing and eating the pupils’ meal while the kids starve.
According to HITNG Online, the unfortunate teacher was then reported to the school’s Proprietor by the Parents of the kids – who later teamed up with few others in making sure the culprit is caught red-handed.
According to a source, Esther was however caught on camera while eating the pupils’ meal – as if that was not enough – she also came with two different plates with which she had turned their foods into.
The Suspect, however confessed to the crime saying, “I take most of the food and snacks of the kids home while I eat some in the school.
“I promise not to repeat such anymore, it’s the devil’s handiwork”, she said.
Speaking on the report, the Proprietor of the school, Mr Patrick Osakwe says “I’ve never owed any of my workers their salaries, in fact every Monday, I give each teacher one thousand naira (N1,000) which is not part of their salaries.
“I pay them well and most of them go home with the school bus, I see no reason why she should have indulged herself in such mess.”
Esther is under Police detention for further investigation as at the time of filing this report.
