Lagos State Government has shut down the Greater Scholars International School in the Ajah area of the State over the alleged defilement of a four-year-old child.
The State Ministry of Education closed the school on Wednesday.
The pupil was reportedly defiled by the school’s security guard, identified as 23-year-old David James, on April 27, 2023, under the pretext of cleaning her.
The suspect was arraigned before Mrs. B.O Osunsanmi of Magistrate’s Court 1, Ogba, on a charge of sexual assault and has been remanded at the correctional Centre.
Seeking Justice for their child, the parents, Mr and Mrs Olusola, had on May 25, 2023, staged a protest demanding that the government shuts down the school.
The trial will continue on September 4, 2023.
