Headteacher arrested after student found dead within the school premises in Buruburu

Headteacher arrested after student found dead within the school premises in Buruburu.

A headteacher in Buruburu was taken into custody by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Saturday following the discovery of a 13-year-old student’s body on school grounds. 

According to a report made public by the Directorate on Saturday, the student’s lifeless body was discovered outside the director’s office of the school after falling from a higher floor. 

After conducting investigations, the investigators concluded that the injuries on the body did not match the school management’s claim that the student had fallen from a higher floor.

Following the discovery, the officers also arrested the school director, the accountant, and another member of staff, to help aid with investigations to ascertain details that led to the suspected murder.

According to a report recorded by the school Director at the police station, the class eight pupil at the boarding institution was discovered missing at 6.30 pm, after she failed to show up for supper.

“The reporter indicated that a search had then been conducted throughout the school’s eight-story building before stumbling on her lifeless body at a 1st-floor balcony outside the Director’s office,” DCI noted. 

The police have since processed the site now assumed to be a scene of crime, and instructed both the staff and the pupils to keep off the area until the investigations are concluded. 

The body has been moved to Mama Lucy Hospital Mortuary awaiting autopsy, to help the police gather more information on the cause of death.
