… In Nasarawa, man, 27 confesses to raping three-month-old baby

LAGOS State Police Command has arrested a 54-year old man identified as Jimoh Kehinde for allegedly raping a five-year-old girl in Yaba area of Lagos State.

  According to the girl’s relative (names withheld), the man lured the girl into the toilet of a mosque where he defiled her and gave her N100 afterwards.

The relative said Kehinde attempted to escape from the community after the incident but was apprehended and taken to a police station.

“We live together in the area and he usually patronises the grandmother of the girl. Kehinde lured the girl into the toilet of the mosque in Iwaya and defiled her. The only thing the girl could say was that he peed on her and gave her N100.”

Continuing, “the N100 exposed the whole thing because the grandma said the guy doesn’t pay when he buys goods from her.

The grandma asked if the N100 was payment for some of the things that he bought or he gave the girl as a gift but the little girl could not explain; thereby triggering the old woman’s suspicion and his arrest.”

It was reported that he was initially dragged to the local community leader but escaped while the matter was being resolved.

He was however, apprehended by members of the community, who took him to Sabo Police Station.

Information says, the girl has been taken to Risk International Foundation for a medical test and assessment of damages done to her body.

They urged the police to ensure that justice takes its course, fearing that if Kehinde is granted bail; the intensity of the matter may die off.

“We will be taking the case to the Sexual Violence Desk of Lagos State to ensure the matter gets the right attention it needs and justice is gotten,” the relative added.
