Written by on July 22, 2022

A private school, Ffad Goshen Academy, Gumei, along Zonkwa road in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State had been closed by the Kaduna State Government following the alleged defilement of a four-year-old student by the school driver.

The driver has been arrested and is now in police custody.

Journalists were told that the four-year-old girl was said to have been violated on the school premises.

Musa, the father of the girl, said she is his only daughter who wanted to learn how to write.

He explained that his daughter was violated on June 10, 2023, and since then, the proprietress of the school, who was said to be working at the Kaduna Government House, did not visit his family.

Bukola Ajao, lawyer and rights activist, said the girl had described how someone slapped her and used her hand to cover her mouth and had sexual intercourse with her.

Speaking to journalists, yesterday, the Commissioner for Human Services and Social Development, Hijaya Hafsat Baba, said the school closure was to allow proper investigation into the matter, adding that the state government would bear the cost of the correctional surgery following the defilement of the girl.
