Queen’s College Old Girls Association faults FG on clearance of teacher alleged of rape

Mrs. Laila St Matthew-Daniel, a member of Queen’s College’s Old Girls Association, who headed the association’s investigative panel that earlier indicted the Biology teacher, Mr. Olaseni Oshifala for rape, has faulted the federal government’s clearance of the suspect.

Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, had last week told newsmen that Mr. Oshifala was cleared of raping a Junior Secondary School student by an investigative panel set up by the ministry of education to investigate the matter, citing the failure of the alleged victim nor her mother to appear before the committee.

Queen’s College teacher accused of rape cleared

Faulting Mr. Oshifala’s clearance by the federal government, Mrs. Matthew-Daniel said in an interview: “The panel may have cleared Mr Osifala, in the absence of any evidence of wrongdoing due to fact that the Chinenye Okoye didn’t appear but does that foreclose any possible incident?

“Whether there was a Chinenye Okoye or not, there were other findings beyond her that made up the petition to call for investigation by the Old Girls.

“One is the information given by the Principal that Oshifala had been accused five times before and this was the sixth time. In other societies, it just takes one accusation for a serious investigation to take place. To either clear the person or to vindicate, premium is put on the girl-child. Should we not also put a premium on ours?”
