A lecturer in the Department of Business Management at the Covenant University Ota, Dr. Stephen Ukenna, has been arrested for allegedly raping a teenage girl.

The victim is a 17-old-year old student of the university.

The 41-year-old lecturer was arrested following a complaint at the Ota Area Command by the girl’s parents.

They alleged their daughter called to report that she was invited by the lecturer to his office on Thursday under the pretence of planning a surprise birthday party for her close friend.

But on getting to Dr. Stephen’s office, he reportedly seized her, locked the door and forcefully had sex with her atop a table.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the Area Commander for Ota, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Muyideen Obe, deployed detectives to the school where they arrested the lecturer.

The suspect has admitted to having non -consenting sex with the victim but was unable to give any reason for his action.

According to Abimbola, the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, has given a directive for the transfer of the suspect to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for thorough investigation and prosecution.
