A primary school teacher has been arrested for allegedly having anal sex with three of his students.

Emmanuel Duke, 22, who teaches at Kizito Nursery and Primary School in Ajide village, Benue State was said to have lured the students to one of the classes and had sexual intercourse with them through their anus.

One of the students was said to have opened up to his mother on what happened between them, leading to the arrest of Duke.

The student told his mother how the teacher tied his face with a red handkerchief and had sexual intercourse with him through his anus twice.

Duke was arraigned before a magistrates’ Court in Makurdi, the Benue State capital on Wednesday.

Police Prosecutor, Sgt. Adama Owochio, told the court that the case was reported at the Eke Police Outpost, Ugbokolo Division, by one of the fathers of the children on June 20.

Owochio said investigation into the matter was still ongoing and asked the court for adjournment.

The Magistrate, Franca Yuwa, adjourned the case to August 14 for mention and ordered that Duke be remanded in prison custody.
