Five teachers of the Polytechnic Academic Staff Secondary School in Birnin Kebbi, have been reportedly dismissed for impregnating an SS3 student at the school.
Sources confirmed that the teachers were dismissed following the recommendation of a committee set up by the school to investigate the strange case. The pregnant student was also expelled from the school.
“The committee submitted a report on Monday and recommended that all the five teachers should be dismissed from service immediately,” a source was quoted to have said.
“The management have dismissed the teachers and the victim was also expelled from the school. When the committee interrogated each of the teachers, they confessed that they have been having sexual relationship with the victim separately, so, they were sacked immediately based on the committee’s recommendations.”
