Reverend Olufunke Oladeojobi, the Principal, Ajuwon Senior High School, Ajuwon, Ifo Local Government Area, Ogun State, who conducted illegal virginity test on girl students has been suspended by the state government.
“A five-man committee comprising officials of the Ministry of Education and the state Teaching Service Commission has been set up to investigate Oladeojobi.
“The committee has been mandated to report back to the government in 14 days. Right now, all I can tell you is that we have suspended her pending the conclusion of investigation.”
“We were embarrassed when we read the story in Punch on Wednesday. Immediately, relevant parastatals were asked to contact her and ensure that she appeared at the ministry. She was quizzed for over two hours and she denied carrying out the test. Rather, she said she only threatened the pupils.
“In view of this, we want to appeal to pupils and their parents to come forward whenever they are invited,” an inside source added.
