Police have arrested a 36–year-old school bus driver, Humble Michael, for defiling a four- year-old pupil of the school where he was employed.
Michael allegedly raped the minor on the way home after he had dropped her colleagues off at their various homes.
The father of the victim discovered the sexual assault on his daughter while bathing her.
He found out blood was gushing out of her private part while bathing her and she disclosed the driver defiled her on January 21, 2021 on their way from school.
The little girl, it was learnt, also told her parents the driver parked somewhere to carry out the act after dropping off others.
