A 7-year-old girl has confirmed to two housewives that she slept with their husbands who she said continually defiled her in their compound at Sanusi Street in Shomolu, Lagos where they reside.
The suspects, Mr. Osuntunbo Dare, 42 and Idowu Gbolahan, 29, both sexually abused their neighbour’s daughter separately and were each not aware that the other was doing the same thing.
The abuse which began in 2017 continued into 2018 until the girl’s mother suspected, checked her private part and found out her daughter had been defiled.
The 7-year-old then revealed what had happened mentioning Gbolahan and Dare as culprits.
Investigation revealed that Dare was the first to begin assaulting the girl in 2017. Then in 2018, Gbolahan joined to rape the girl on multiple occasions. Both men threatened the girl not to reveal their actions to anyone.
They were found culpable and charged before the Ogba Magistrates court for the alleged offence. The court ordered them to be remanded in prison without taking their plea.
The matter was adjourned till September 24, 2018.
