Olawuyi, who works in a private school, was paraded by the commissioner of police in the state, Ngozi Onadeko, alongside other crime suspects at the police headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan, on Thursday.
The suspect, who holds a Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE), confessed to the crime, but said he had slept with only two male pupils.
Speaking with journalists, Olawuyi said the first incident happened when he invited a pupil to his house to help him mark examination scripts.

“It was just two times I did it. They are my students. I had sex through the anus with one of two of my students on different occasions. I don’t have a wife. I am a private primary school teacher. I called the last victim to my house to help me collate scripts while I slept with the second one in the classroom before school hours,” he said.
When asked how he convinced the pupils not to tell their parents, he said:
“I told them that I want to have sex with them and they didn’t argue. Both of them are between the ages of 11 and 14. I told them not to tell their parents because it has health benefits for them”, he confessed.
“I think it is the devil. I don’t know what led me to this. I just lost my dad last week. I want the government to help me out of this,” the suspect added.
