Kaduna govt shuts two schools after minors were allegedly defiled & 12-year-old impregnated

The Kaduna State Schools Quality Assurance Authority (KSSQA) on Friday, shuts down two Islamiyah schools indefinitely over alleged rape of a six-year-old girl and impregnating of another.

One of the schools, Madrasatul Ulumul Deeniya wa Tahfizul Qur’an, located in Rigasa, was closed over the alleged rape of the six-year-old girl in the school premises.

The other Islamiyah school, located at Tsohon Masallacin Juma’a in Kachia, Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State was also closed following an alleged impregnating of a 12-year-old girl by a 50-year-old teacher at the school.

The Overseer of the KSSQA, Mr Idris Aliyu, who shut down the Islamiya school in Rigasa, explained that the six-year-old girl was violated within the school premises and the school authority covered it up and claimed ignorance of the incident.

Aliyu said that the information before the Ministry of Education showed that the survivor’s grandmother went to the school authority and loaded a complaint but was allegedly beaten by the students and teachers of the Islamiyah.

He said that Governor Nasir El-Rufai has ordered that the Islamiyah be shut down indefinitely until investigation is concluded and the culprit apprehended.

“The headmaster of the school would be held responsible for the act until all persons in the school were profiled and the perpetrator identified by the survivor and prosecuted,” he said.

“The individuals responsible for the violence against the grandmother, especially the headmaster, will also be prosecuted.”

“This is in line with the state government’s responsibility in protecting the vulnerable population in the state,” he said.
