According to the mother of the deceased, her husband had stormed the school to complain over the alleged act of the driver on his daughter. Fatokin was said to have denied having carnal knowledge of the victim when he was queried by the school proprietor. His denial angered Olorunfemi who slapped the accused and it resulted into a scuffle. The driver allegedly hit the deceased on the chest and he collapsed.

“On Wednesday, February 1, my daughter told me that her school bus driver had been taking her to his house around Ajuwon, on the pretext that he needed to drop something at home and that she should follow him.

“When they entered the house, the driver would ask my daughter to sit on his lap; to raise her school uniform and to kiss his mouth. I told my husband what our daughter said on Monday, February 6 and he immediately called the school to complain and said he was also reporting the allegation to the police.

“He was told to come to the school first so we went there on Tuesday, February 7 and we met the school owner, the driver and some of the teachers. The school owner after listening to us, confronted the driver, saying he returned late with the school bus the previous week and when asked, he said he went to something at home.”


“The driver couldn’t say anything other than me? Me? Me? My visibly angry husband went to the driver, shouted at him and questioned why he molested his daughter.

“My husband angrily slapped the driver and they started fighting during which he pushed my husband on his chest. He (her husband) fell and efforts to revive him were abortive. We rushed him to a hospital, where he was confirmed dead,’’ the widow told NAN.

Meanwhile, the police has launched a manhunt for  the driver who is currently at large.
