Lecturers prey on Nigerian women, girls

More naija dirty laundry HERE- thank God it is being aired though!

Imagine, girls as young as 11 being sexually harassed by teachers; it's a pity that this malaise of our higher institutions has gotten to younger girls, but it was only a matter of time. I remember hearing whispers from classmates in the primary school I had just joined (we just moved cities) about a girl having gotten pregnant for our Yoruba teacher the year before. I was in primary five, nine years old, almost ten and this was several months before I learnt, also from a classmate, what menstruation was - so you can imagine how innocent I was. This girl must have been around 13 or maybe slightly older and she had reached what would probably be her adult height and was very "ripe", that did not in anyway make it right!!! It is sick for any adult man to take advantage of a child entrusted to their care, where is the honour of these paedophiles??? Oh, they probably do not see themselves as sick people sha. It is just enjoying "perks of the profession"!

Its things like this that make me very disdainful of the people blaming the west for all of the erosion of values in society - as far back as over 60 years ago, my aunt was impregnated by her principal, in a very traumatising experience, that has her rejecting her child. Lets face it, many of our men don't know how to keep their trousers up, and it doesn't have anything to do with oyinbo!

i agree with you, sexual perversion is not a function of skin color. these men are simply reprobates.

Wow! I knew about lecherous university lecturers but I didn't know it was happening in secondary schools and even primary schools in Nigeria!

Very disturbing. But as you've said, thank God that at least it's now being aired.

Thanks girls, for the comments. My internet at home has been out of order, I've been suffering BWS (blogger withdrawal syndrome:)

I think one of the greatest things the internet has done/can do for Nigerians is that it helps us to speak out about issues that have been unjustly kept under wraps for way too long, like sexual abuse.
