A Lagos teacher identified as Quaseem Olayiwola has been remanded in prison, after he was arraigned before a court for impregnating a 14-year-old pupil.
34-year-old Quaseem who was arrested after the case was reported to Ayobo Police Division, and he reportedly committed the sad act between October 2018 and January 2019 in a hotel.

His charge while being arraigned on one count of defilement before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court sitting in Ogba, read;
“That you, Quaseem Olayiwola ‘M’, between October 2018 and January 2019 at Olubar Hotel C&S area, Ayobo, Lagos in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully defile a 14-year-old girl by having intercourse with her and impregnating her.
