Lesson Teacher Defiles 13-Year-Old Pupil, Says Victim Seduced Him

The police in Lagos have arrested a 30-year-old teacher, Charles Munroe, for allegedly defiling a Senior Secondary School one pupil he was giving extramural education.

Although Munroe admitted to having s-x with the 13-year-old girl, he claimed it was consensual and that the victim seduced him.

City Round learnt that the girl’s mother had employed Munroe sometime in August 2018 to be teaching her daughter in their residence at Ajangbadi area of the state.

Munroe was said to have gone to the girl’s school on January 16, 2019 and asked her to follow him to his house on the pretence that he wanted to show her something.


On getting to the house, the teacher reportedly had s-x with her forcefully and threatened to kill her if she disclosed what happened to her parents.

It Was gathered that about one month later, on February 19, Munroe repeated the act after he allegedly lured the girl out of the class on the pretext that he wanted to give her a textbook.

It was learnt that the girl’s mother observed that she was nervous, prompting the woman to prod her into telling the truth. She was said to have opened up to her mother after much pestering.

The case was consequently reported at the Okokomaiko Police Division and the teacher was arrested.

The girl told the police that she followed Munroe home based on the trust she had in him, adding that she never thought he could molest her.

She said, “Mr. Munroe teaches my mum’s friend’s children. Through my mum’s friend, she started giving me private lessons in August 2018. In January this year, he visited me in the school and asked me if I had a boyfriend. I told him I did not have. He came the second time and told me he wanted to be my boyfriend. I told him I was not interested.

“On January 16, he came to my school again and asked me to follow him home to see something. Being my lesson teacher, I agreed to follow him. I never thought he could think of having s-x with me. I wanted to shout, but he covered my mouth. When he was done, he threatened to kill me if I told my parents about it. I was scared and didn’t tell them.

“On the second occasion, he came to my school and told me that there was a textbook he wanted me to read. He took me to a place and asked me to remove my clothes. When I refused, he forcefully had s-x with me.”

But Munroe, who hails from Abia State, claimed that the s-x was consensual.

The teacher stated that he and the girl had become close over time during which she allegedly made amorous advances to him.

He said he rejected the overtures and that it led to a disagreement, adding that he later succumbed to “let peace reign.”

Munroe stated, “I am a graduate and I have been teaching for some years now. I was engaged to give private lessons to the girl at home. We both became close in the process and she shared her burdens with me. In all honesty, she told me she was 15 years old.  On February 19, she visited me as she normally did. She had wanted me to be with her even when I resisted.

“At a point, my refusal caused a serious disagreement between us. I succumbed to her advances to let peace reign. We had s-x based on her consent. I never knew before now that she was still a child under the law and was not capable of giving consent. The first one took place in my house. I asked her several times if she had a boyfriend just to discourage her from being close to me.”

A police prosecutor, Inspector Ben Emuerhi, subsequently brought Munroe before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ogba on one count of defilement.

The charge read, “That you, Charles Munroe, between January 16, 2019 and February 19, 2019 at Ajangbadi, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully defile a 13-year-old girl, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.”

The presiding magistrate, Mrs O. Sule-Hamzat, did not take the teacher’s plea.

She granted a remand application filed by the police, asking that the defendant be kept in the Kirikiri prison.

The magistrate directed that a copy of the case file be sent to the Directorate of the Public Prosecutions for legal advice and adjourned the matter till May 2, 2019.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
