A 43-year-old man identified as Ini Udoh, has been reportedly arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly raping three minors in Ijoko community located in Sango town of the state.
According to the state Command Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect was arrested for having unlawful carnal knowledge of three minors, two of whom are 9 years old while the other one is 12 years old.”
He added that the suspect who lived in the same compound with the victims’ parents usually lured the girls into his room whenever their parents and his own wife were not around under the pretence of sending them on errands, while he allegedly had sex with them at different times.
The police spokesperson said the crime was unravelled when the mother of one of the girls noticed ‘what looked like sperm on her daughter’s panties while washing it and this aroused her curiosity.’
“It was this disclosure that led to the revelation that the suspect has been having sex with her and two others whenever their parents are not at home,” Mr. Oyeyemi said.
He said a report was subsequently lodged at the Sango Police Station and detectives then arrested the suspect, while the three victims were
taken to the General Hospital for medical attention.
He added that the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered immediate transfer of the case to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and possible prosecution of the suspect.
