Father loses his life while battling the school bus driver who is accused of abusing his daughter.
A 51-year-old man, Frederick Olorunfemi, has lost his life while confronting a school bus driver of Luyol Schools, Lagos state for allegedly molesting his daughter.
It was learned that the deceased’s 7-year-old daughter told her mother that the driver took her to his house on February 1, 2023, after taking other kids there. There, she was told to remove her school uniform and sit on his lap. The driver kissed her and referred to her as his wife, she continued.
After learning this, Mr. Olorunfemi allegedly got in touch with the school’s headmaster and told him that he would go to the police station to report everything. However, he was instructed to stop by the school first the following day, which he did.
At the school, the driver was invited for questioning and when the father of the victim confronted him for the illicit act, this led to an altercation between them. The school bus driver was said to have pushed Mr. Femi, who fell down and was rushed to a nearby hospital, Osuntuyi Medical Centre where he was confirmed dead.
The driver has been on the run and nowhere to be found, according to the Lagos State Police spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin was called, who confirmed the incident.
