An old randy goat has been declared wanted by the police in Lagos for allegedly repeatedly raping two minors.
A randy 61-year-old security guard identified only as John, is now on the run after the Lagos State Police Command declared him wanted for allegedly raping two sisters aged 10 and 11 respectively in the Anthony Village area of the state.
It was also reported that anytime he defiled the minors, John gave them the sum of N200 as compensation, while warning them never to reveal what he has been doing to them to anyone or he would kill them both.
It was gathered that his secret came to light after the girls complained to their mother of pains in their backs and abdomen and after interrogation, they opened up and told their mother what the old man had been doing to them.
The mother then laid a complaint at the Anthony Village Police Division but by the time the police went after him, John had disappeared into thin air and had not returned to his rented apartment since the day the incident was reported to the police.
The girl's mother, Rosemary Peter, an indigene of Kafanchan in Kaduna State and a food seller in the area, said John usually asked the girls to bring food to his workplace in a take-away pack during which he took advantage of the girls but by the time she realised what he had been doing to her daughters, it was already too late as their private parts had become slack.
“I work as a food seller. John was one of my customers. He would say I should send a take-away pack to him at his workplace by afternoon.
So, when the girls returned from school, I would send the two of them to take the food to him. I did not suspect that he was raping them.
When they took the food to him, he would take them to a place and rape both of them. After satisfying himself, he would give them N200, and warn them not to say anything at home. He would threaten that he would harm them if they spoke up.
Eventually, the two of them started to complain about headache, abdominal pains and back pain. I was worried. On one occasion, I happened to be where the 11-year-old was taking her bath, and I observed that her private parts were slack as an adult’s. I was shocked, and I urged her to tell me what went wrong.
That was when she opened up that it was John who had been sleeping with her and her sister. I rushed to the police station to make a report, but news had got to John that the girls had let out the matter, and he fled the area on the same day.
But the police have assured us that he would be arrested. They told us to alert them anytime we set our eyes on him,” the mother narrated.
Cases of old men defiling minors have been on the increase and needs to be nipped in the bud.
A few weeks ago, a 60-year-old retired Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Yusuf Ibrahim, was arrested in Bauchi State for allegedly raping two little girls, aged five and six respectively.
In the same vein, a 72-year-old grandfather in Edo State, Pa Solomon Ugiagbe, was docked by an Egor Magistrate’s Court sitting in Benin, the state capital, for allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl.
Also, a 54-year-old serial rapist in Zuma Rock Village, Madalla, Niger State, identified as Nasiru, was arrested by the local vigilante in the area after he abducted a 13-year-old girl and raped her repeatedly.
