40-yr-old man arrested for raping minor

It was disclosed that the 40-year-old man was arrested at No.4 Olufunmi Ajayi street Iyana Ilogbo Ota following a complaint from the mother of the victim.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed that the 40-year-old man was arrested at No.4 Olufunmi Ajayi street Iyana Ilogbo Ota following a complaint from the mother of the victim.

“The mother of the victim reported at Sango Police Station that the suspect who is their neighbour lured the victim into his room under the pretence of sending her on an errand and had carnal knowledge of her while the Parents are away at work.

“Upon her complaint, the Divisional Police Officer SP Akinsola Ogunwale detailed detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested. He has since owned up to the commission of the offence after being confronted by the victim,” he said.

Daily Post reports that Oyeyemi, however, said that the Commissioner of Police (CP), Ahmed Iliyasu, has directed that the suspect be transferred to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
