A 40 year old man, Olorunfemi Frederick had died during a scuffle with a school bus driver known as Mr. Jacob Fatokin, who was accused of molesting the deceased’s 7-year-old daughter.
Hybrid News Nigeria gathered that the deceased had on Tuesday gone to Luyol School, Iju-Ishaga in Ogun State to confront the driver and the school management on the allegation when the incident happened.
In her narration, Mrs. Mabel Olorunfemi, the deceased’s wife told www.hybridnewsng.com that her daughter had narrated to her how Jacob had been taking her to his house at Ajuwon, Ogun State to molest her.
She cried that she never knew that it would be the end of her husband.
In her words: “Last week Wednesday, Feb. 1, my daughter told me that their school bus driver had been taking her to his house at Ajuwon, saying that he needs to drop something at home and that she should follow him
“I told my husband what our daughter said on Monday, Feb. 6 in the evening when he came back from work and he immediately called the school that he is reporting the allegation to the police but he was told to come to the school first so we went there Tuesday morning
“The owner of the school after listening to us then confronted the driver, saying that he had come back late with the school bus, the previous week and when asked, he said he had gone to drop something at home
“He was later asked about the allegations leveled against him but he denied. My daughter was then asked and she narrated the same thing she told us at home. The driver couldn’t say anything more than “me, me, me
“My husband who was already angry now went to the driver and shouted at him to question why he had molested his daughter
“I started crying and praying for my husband as we made effort to rush him to the hospital but he was already showing signs of no life in him before we got to Osuntuyi hospital where he was confirmed dead,” she said.
Oluwatosin however pleaded for justice to be done as his brother’s wife has no job and no idea of how to survive with two kids.
