A 34-year-old Lagos State based trader identified as Mallam Isiaka, has been arrested by the State Police Command for allegedly raping a nine-year-old boy in the Iju/Ishaga area of the state.

His raping adventure was brought to the fore after the boy complained of pains in his anus to his mother and when asked what happened, the boy told his mother that Isiaka had defiled him through the anus. The mother reported the case to the Iju Police Division, and Isiaka was arrested.

It was gathered that the boy who is a primary one pupil in the area, lives with his parents along Coker Alhaja Street, Old Akute Road, Iju, told his mother that anytime she sent to buy items from Isiaka who runs a small kiosk in the area, the 'Aboki' would lure the boy inside his shop and raped him repeatedly.

After the case was reported to the police, the victim was taken to the Mirabel Centre for tests which revealed that he had been defiled through the anus while further tests to ascertain infections were carried out on him.

When asked why he did not tell his mother when the assaults started, the young boy said Isiaka had warned him never to tell anyone or he kill him and his parents.

The State Police Public Relations Officer [PPRO], SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed Isiaka’s arrest, adding that the case had been transferred to the Isokoko division for prosecution.

“The suspect was arrested for allegedly defiling the nine-year-old boy. The case is now at the Isokoko division where we have the Family Support Unit which handles cases of domestic and sexual violence. Justice will be done in the matter.”
