He said those involved were three male teachers and the principal of the government school where the child was enrolled. The teenager had further shared, two female teachers had recorded her being raped by their male colleagues. She told the police that she had been sexually abused for over a year.

The principal, who has not been named, threatened the man. He told the father that his brother was a minister and they would have him killed if he tried to file a complaint.

One of the victims told the police that a female teacher lured her to a house where she was gang-raped by three teachers and the principal. The teachers also reportedly tried to bribe the children. They offered to pay the school fees of the students as well as pay for their books.
