Operatives of the Nigerian Police, the Ogun state command have arrested a 29 year old man identified as Buhari Abiola aka Eyinju, for forcefully having carnal knowledge of a 21 year old girl (name withheld).
Eye9ja reports that this was made known in a statement by the state police command spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
The statement noted that the arrest of the suspect followed a report from the victim who made a complaint at Adigbe divisional headquarters that while she was selling fried potatoes and beancake at the church street area of Ojere, the suspect who in the guise of buying the fried potatoes, asked her to come and collect money in his house which isn’t far from her shop.
The victim said on getting to his house, the suspect forcefully dragged her into his room where he repeatedly committed the immoral act without interruption.
Upon the report, the DPO Adigbe division, CSP Austin Okpadile, detailed his men to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.
Upon interrogation, the suspect who denied initially, later confessed that he actually raped the girl.
He was quoted to have told the police that he has been making advances on the victim for quite some time but she constantly turned him down. He said when he saw her selling fried potatoes that very day, he decided to use that as a bait to get her in bed.
Meanwhile, the commissioner of police CP Kenneth Ebrimson who expressed worry about the rate at which young girls are being sexually abused, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
