According to Oviawe,

“After the case was reported by SUBEB to the Police, Lambert was apprehended by the Police. This was after SUBEB received report of the incident from the class teacher of the girl, who is a pupil in one of the primary schools.

She had observed that the girl was always absent from school and contacted the girl’s guardian to find out the cause of her absenteeism.

The girl told her class teacher how she was being sexually abused by Ighodaro, in his house during school hours since 2017. She alleged that the man gives her money after defiling her.”
