The Juaso Circuit Court, presided over by Mr. Fredrick Tetteh, has sentenced a teacher standing trial for defiling a school girl to 13 years imprisonment.

Shaibu Iddi, a 27 year-old university graduate, before the ruling, had pleaded with the judge to “tamper justice with mercy” and pardon him.

Mr. Tetteh was however unmoved by his plea, explaining that as a teacher it was expected that he would be a good example not only to the children he was teaching, but other residents in the community.

Chief Inspector Dennis Nana Duku told the court that Iddi lived in the same vicinity with the 10-year- old victim and her parents at Juaso.

Sometime in September this year, he lured the little girl and her friend into his room and defiled the her after asking her friend to buy him banana.

He further warned her not disclose what ensued between them to anyone.

The victim did, as she was instructed until October 1, when she fell ill and was forced to recount her story to her mother.

A formal report was made to the Police and Iddi, who had gone into hiding was tracked down and arrested on Friday, November 20.
