A 36-year-old father-of-three has been arrested for raping his neighbour's 8-year-old daughter.
The culprit, Itorobong Iyang, confessed to the act which occurred in the Ajegunle area of Lagos State.
Iyang who claims to be separated from his wife said he could not hold himself back since he was sex starved.
The father-of-three made the disclosure before newsmen on Thursday, September 29 while being paraded at the state police headquarters.
Iyang also blamed his actions on the influence of alcohol adding that he had just decided to cook when some of the neighbour's children came to his place to play.
“After they left, I went to sleep. While I was sleeping I heard the little girl’s voice calling me. So I woke and found my neighbour’s daughter in my room. I decided to play with her. While playing with her, I told her to pull off her pants and she did without hesitation. I also asked her to insert my penis into her private part; she did and started rubbing it.
“What surprised me the most was that she did not cry and did not say she was in pains.
“I was still in the act when the girl’s mother called out to her when she noticed that she was not outside with her playmates. When I heard the girl’s name, I pulled out and quickly dressed up and she left to answer her mother; but owing to her mother’s suspicion, she asked her daughter what she was doing in my house and the girl, out of sheer innocence, confessed to her mother what transpired.
“The mother then invited the police who arrested me,” the suspect narrated.
The Police spokesperson, Dolapo Badmus, who paraded the suspect, said Iyang will be charged to court accordingly.
