42-Year-Old Man Arrested For Allegedly Defiling 9-Year-Old Daughter
Lagos state police command has arrested a 42-year-old man, Segun Olusoji, for allegedly defiling his nine-year-old daughter in the Ilasamaja area of the state.
Parading the suspect before newsmen on Thursday, April 29, the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, said the suspect usually wakes his daughter to defile her.
The case was initially reported by one Oluwafunmibi Ojewale, 27, against one Segun Olusoji, 42, at the Itire Divisional Police Headquarters and it was subsequently transferred to the SCIID, Yaba, for discreet investigation.
Upon interrogation, the complainant asserted that the suspect had unlawful carnal knowledge of his nine-year-old daughter. The victim also affirmed that the father usually wakes her up at night to carry out the indecent act.
In a related development, the police said a man identified as Ebuka Orji, has been arrested for defiling a 12-year-old girl.
Disclosing this to newsmen, Odumosu, said;
The 12-year-old alleged that one Ebuka Orji asked her to come to their kitchen when her mother was not at home. On getting to the kitchen, he removed her pants and put his manhood in her private parts, while the second suspect, Eze Emmanuel, pecked her sometime last year. The matter was eventually reported by the victim’s church member.
In the same vein, Odumosu also paraded three suspects, Abubakar Riskwua, 29; Ibrahim Issa, 20; and Abubakar Bello, 22, for allegedly killing and setting ablaze a yet-to-be-identified person in Badagry area of the state.
He said the suspects perpetrated the crime on the allegation that the victim was a thief at the Sawmill area of Badagry.
In another development, one Mama Ajayi was also paraded for alleged child trafficking in Lekki area of the state.
The CP said a foundation named Auntlanda’s Bethel Foundation made a report against Ajayi, adding that despite efforts to stop her from engaging in street begging with children, she refused to stop the act.
The fact of the case is that the petitioner stated that the suspect was in the habit of using children as beggars on the streets and efforts to stop her from doing that proved abortive even after she was offered rehabilitation and empowerment by the Auntlanda’s Bethel Foundation.
The suspect was again seen on the street begging with another child. The suspect will soon be charged.
The command also paraded one Monsurat Olubodun, 21, for allegedly physically assaulting an 11-year-old boy in Papa Ajao area of the state.
The victim was accused of phone theft by Monsurat, and in a bid to make the victim confess, she allegedly flogged and tortured him with hot pressing iron.
Odumosu said the suspect also hung the victim to a ceiling fan and his relative, Kunle Lateef, was left with no choice but to report to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba.
Additionally, one Samuel James was arrested for alleged sexual assault on a customer, who lodged in a hotel in Akoka area of the state.
The CP said;
The suspect broke into the complainant’s room through the toilet window and assaulted her sexually. The suspect is presently in custody and will be charged on conclusion of investigation.
