Samson Adeyemo, a principal of a secondary school in Abule Egba, Lagos has confessed that he had sexual relationships with two 17 – year -old twin students of his school.
Naija News understands that the principal, Adeyemo, admitted to the crime before an Ikeja Special Offences Court.
I had a relationship with Twin A and Twin B. I’m married to Twin A. The marriage was not conducted in the church or registry. I had her consent and her parents were aware.
“ Marriage is done between a male and a female and it is for life. What is between me and Twin A is marriage and the one people do in the church or registry is a wedding.
“The relationship with Twin A started in 2016 and I had sexual intercourse with her in 2017. I did not start the relationship with Twin B until I met their mother and also had sexual intercourse with Twin B.”
Adeyemo admitted that the school he operates had not been fully registered with the Lagos State Ministry of Education. He, however, denied having sexual relationships with other students in the school.
Earlier, while giving his evidence-in-chief , the defendant admitted impregnating Twin A while she was under his care.
Led in evidence by the Defence Counsel , Mr. R . O. Akande, Adeyemo said Twin B had become jealous when she discovered that her twin was in a relationship with him.
“ Twin B came to me that why was it her sister that I was dating. I told her that it was Twin A that I wished to date. She said she was having other relationships, but she wanted me because I am her twin’ s boyfriend. “ In 2017, Twin A got pregnant and I decided to cater for her but Twin A ’s parents refused , insisting that the pregnancy will be aborted. I refused because I wanted the baby and I wanted to marry her as well.
“ I gave her some upkeep money and her parents collected the money from her and terminated the pregnancy, ” he said.
The principal said the father of the twins asked him to pay N 200, 000 or be punished. “ Two days after the twin’s uncle, named Kayode alias Kokoro, led some thugs to beat me up and on April 26 , 2017 , I was called by Kayode that I should meet him to sign an undertaking that the twins shall collect their WAEC results.
“I went to meet him not knowing that he had laid an ambush for me and he handed me over to the police. Twin B was 14 years old when I met her and Twin A was 15 years old when we met,” Adeyemo stated.
Justice Sherifat Solebo adjourned the case until February 24 for the adoption of final written addresses.
