There’s tension at the Queen’s Convent School Awka, Anambra State capital, following reports that a gateman employed by the school authorities has impregnated three students of the college.
Located in Ifite area of Awka, the school is owned by the Anglican Diocese of Awka.
The young gateman, it was learnt, hails from Akwa Ibom State, while the affected students are said to be in Senior Secondary Two (SS 2).
When the bubble burst, one of the pregnant girls attempted to take her life by jumping down from the upstairs of the hostel, but was prevented by fellow students and teachers.
It was also learnt that the students of the college had been complaining to the school authorities over the activities of the gateman, but the school authorities but their complaints were allegedly ignored.
The gate keeper was said to always adorn ear rings with body tattoos which he flaunted to deceive gullible, innocent students of the college.
It was further gathered that the Principal of the college is the wife of the Anglican Archbishop on the Niger, Most Rev. Dr. Alexander Ibezim.
As at the time of filing this report, no decision had been taken by the school authorities regarding the future of the young girls and the randy gateman.
According to one of the teachers who spoke on condition of anonymity, “Some of us did not like the idea of bringing young men of about 28-30 years as security men in a female school.
“Even the students wanted old men who will treat them like their daughters, but it was a collective decision by the authorities, yet, their own daughters are not here.”
“Now that the bubble has burst, whom do we blame? How will the parents of those students take it?” the source asked rhetorically.
