Yusuf, confessed to giving the victim, Codeine before he raped her.

“On 2nd September 2019, around 2:30 p.m., we arrested a suspect of rape in

person of Nathan Yusuf (37) who is a teacher at Gurel primary school in

Namtari Yola south, suspected to have raped his pupil who is below 14

years of age. He confessed to giving her codeine syrup before raping her.

“We are advising parents to be vigilant on their children and report such

crimes to the relevant authorities for judicial action,” he said.

An uncle of the victim, Sulaiman Namtari, said everyone in the community had

enormous respect and trust for the teacher and were shocked he could commit such a crime.

“Every member of the community reserves tremendous respect for the teacher

as he has been in the community for years. There is no house he doesn’t enter and

every member of the community knows him very well.

”What he did was perfidy of the highest order and for that we want authorities

not to spare him,” he said

When interrogated, the suspect blamed the devil for his action.

‘’I regret my action. It was the handiwork of Satan and i am ready to take the

full responsibility,’’ he said.
