    A 40-year-old teacher, Emmanuel David, was on Tuesday arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court, for sending nude pictures and videos to his 14-year-old student.

    Ayorinde said that the defendant sexually harassed his student by sending her love messages, pornographic pictures and videos and requesting for her nude pictures and videos through WhatsApp application.

    “The defendant, a mathematics teacher, was making advances to his teenage student.

    “He asked for her phone number and the girl, who does not have a phone, gave him her mother’s number, unknown to the defendant.

    “The defendant started sending love messages and nude pictures, thinking he was chatting with the girl but her mother was reading all his messages.

    “When he asked for the girl’s naked pictures and videos, the mother reported the case, and the defendant was arrested,” the prosecutor said.

    The alleged offence contravened Section 264 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

    The section provides for three years’ imprisonment for sexual harassment, NAN reports.

    Magistrate B.O. Osunsanmi granted the defendant bail the sum of N200,000 with two sureties.

    Osunsanmi said that the sureties should be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

    She adjourned the case until Oct. 16 2019.
