A Private Security Guard at the Gaa Akanbi area of Ilorin, Kwara State and a teacher in a private school have been arrested for allegedly raping and sexually abusing two teenagers.

The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps paraded the two suspects, Idowu Yahaya and John Balogun on Wednesday.

Yahaya (39), a private security guard at the Gaa Akanbi area of Ilorin was alleged to have raped a 15-year-old girl in an office in the Gaa Akanbi area, Ilorin while 49-year-old Balogun, a teacher in a private school, allegedly raped his step-daughter, a 17-year-old girl at the Osere area also in Ilorin.

The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Mohammed Umar, urged parents and guardians to be vigilant always.

He also stressed that children should be encouraged to have intimate talks with their parents if they have problems, not only with a stranger but also with a friend or close relative.

“They should know a safe, well-travelled route to take to and from school and Isolated areas should be avoided,” he added.
