Project Alert on Violence Against Women is indeed shocked
and condemns the action of the Management of Queens College Lagos, whereby
students were brought out of the school today with placards to protest the
sexual abuse allegation against one of the teachers Mr. Owoseni Osifala, a
that the mother of a JSS 2 girl had alleged sexual abuse of her daughter by the
teacher. In response to this, the Old Girls of the school including Prof Grace
Alele Williams (1st female Vice Chancellor)
gathered in the school yesterday evening to discuss the matter with the
management of the school. At this meeting the current Principal of QC, walked
out on the Old Girls, some of whom are older than her. She had to be called
their own plans as evident by the “forced protest” by the students of
the school. We at Project Alert have the following questions to ask….
of these girls before taking them out on the streets?
and unquestioning of situations?
of calling for a thorough investigation?
Girls of the school?
independent investigation carried out?
good teacher as the school and students claim, but that does not make him a
saint. There is no smoke without a fire?
The matter must be investigated thoroughly. The Principal of QC should be
punished for bringing out the girls on to the street to protest an alleged
crime that should be investigated. She is not fit to be an Educationist.
