The Coordinator of the Lagos State Domestic Violence Response Team (DSVRT),  Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said that the incident happened at Aweda’s residence in the Orile Area of the state and was initially reported at Orile Police Station.

“On November 16, 2016, the victim’s mother found Yisa Aweda having sexual intercourse with her daughter in her living room and immediately shouted for help.

This attracted other neighbours and her husband who came in and in anger, took a broken bottle to cause serious injury on the perpetrator.

The matter was immediately reported to Orile Police station, while the perpetrator was taken to the hospital for medical attention and the father of the girl was also arrested and detained.

The Mirabel Centre carried out a test on the victim, which confirmed a penetration and the result has been sent to the Police Station for proper prosecution.

The matter was reported to the office of DSVRT and we visited the Police station to know the steps taken by the Police and we also visited the perpetrator in the hospital.

In view of this fact, the rights of the child need to be adequately safeguarded and the father of the victim will be legally represented.”

Adeniyi said the perpetrator, a relation of the victim by marriage, had been pleading with the family that the matter should be settled out of court.

“The family members came to appeal that the matter be settled out of court. DSVRT has been informed about the case and the state would ensure diligent prosecution.

We hope the suspect recovers quickly to stand trial in the court for the offence he was alleged to have committed and we urge the public to desist from such act.”
