The head teacher of a secondary school in Lagos, Mr. Samson Adeyemo, has admitted before an Ikeja Special Offences Court that he had sexual relationships with two 17-year-old twin pupils of his school.

Adeyemo, 41, who lives at 8, Odesanya Street, Abule Egba, near Lagos, is the head teacher of Legati College, Abule Egba.

He is facing a two-count charge of defilement of a child.

While being cross-examined yesterday by State Prosecutor, Ms M. I. Oshodi, the defendant, who has a National Certificate in Education (NCE), admitted to defiling the underage pupils (Twin A and Twin B).

“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 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 after I met her mother.”

Adeyemo admitted that the school he operated had not been fully registered with the Lagos State Ministry of Education.
