When I heard the suspect was released, I became helpless and concerned about the safety of my sister and the victims

Ilorin, Kwara State- Operatives of Kwara State Police Command have arrested one Ayoola Sunday, the coordinator of an educational institute in Iorin, allegedly sexually molesting two admission seekers studying at his centre in Ilorin, Kwara State.

The arrest, carried out by operatives from the Kwara State Police, comes after a detailed investigation into complaints lodged by the victims.

The young women, who were preparing for the Interim Joint Matriculation Board examination to gain admission into an institution under Sunday’s supervision, reported that they were subjected to inappropriate and non-consensual advances by the coordinator.

Punch reports that the two victims, along with some of their colleagues, visited the office of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, where official complaints were made against the coordinator.

One of the victims, who said she had been traumatised by the development, told our correspondent that the NSCDC officials quickly swooped into action and arrested Sunday.

“He (Sunday) suddenly called me to come to his house to discuss my result, admission and the school I wanted to attend. When I got there, he started touching me and I kept stopping him till he overpowered me and penetrated me,” the victim narrated.

“I left his house angrily. He started calling to apologise. When he observed that I was still angry, he threatened me. He said if I wanted to pass my exams and gain admission, I should not tell anyone what happened or else I would lose everything.

“But when he kept calling and I didn’t pick up, he started assuming that I had told someone about the incident. When I returned his calls, he started shouting on the phone, asking why I did not pick up his call and I ended the call.

“When I got to the hostel, I narrated all he did to me to my colleagues. I also discovered he did the same thing to another colleague and that particular victim was the person he did not want me to stay with at the hostel. We reported the case to the NSCDC officials and he was arrested, detained and later released.”

A sister of a colleague of the victims, who also accused Sunday of attempting to get into an intimate relationship with her while studying at his centre, said she encouraged the victims to report the case to the police for prompt investigation.

“He (Sunday) also made attempts to have a romantic relationship with my sister but she declined. I have screenshots of his chats with my sister. I had to call and threaten him to back off from my sister or he would regret it,” she said.

“I was informed that two students accused Sunday of sexually molesting them. One happened in 2023 and another happened recently. So, with my experience of what he had been trying to do to my sister and with the victims’ accusations, I encouraged them to report to the police.

“My sister also went with them to report based on her experience with him. I was later informed that he had been arrested and was happy that the police swung into action immediately.”

However, the aggrieved sister said when she got the information that the suspect had been released, she became furious, adding that she never knew that the victims reported the case to the NSCDC instead of the police.

“I quickly informed my family members and friends, including Adife, who made a post about the case on But when I got clarity that it was the NSCDC officials who arrested and released the suspect, the post was taken down.

Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the State Police Command, Ejire-Adeyemi Toun, said the accused suspect would be charged to court after the investigation is completed.

“He (Sunday) has been in our custody since Friday. As usual, when they finish their findings, he will be charged to court,” she said.
