Ibrahim Tukur, a Vice Principal of a secondary school in Rimi Local Government Area of Katsina State, has been arrested.

Tukur and other suspects were paraded at the Katsina Police Command headquarters on Wednesday.
The spokesman for the Police Command, SP Gambo Isah, told journalists during the parade that the Vice Principal was arrested on January 9, 2021, following a report on the incident at the Rimi Divisional Police headquarters by one Ibrahim Sani.
SP Isah disclosed that the Vice Principal took advantage of the girl to impregnate her.
