Alarming : Rivers Teachers R*ped 50 Pupils In Four Months, Says FIDA

The International Federation of Women Lawyers has raised the alarm over the rise in cases of teachers sexually abusing their students in Rivers State.

The Chairperson of FIDA in Rivers State, Adata Bio-Briggs, while speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt, the state capital, said between January and April 2022, over 50 cases of teachers defiling their students had been reported and charged to court.

She said some of the recent cases were recorded in Ahoada, Elelenwo and Rumuokuta areas of the state, even as she commended the police for promptly prosecuting many of the cases, which she described as disheartening.

She, however, said FIDA was faced with the challenge of obstruction of prosecution processes by family members of victims.
