A 35-year- old man Ayegunle Adekunle who was arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for raping of a 3-year-old girl has blamed the devil for his actions.
In a press release, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said the suspect was a co-tenant with the parents of the victim at No. 29 Ore Meji Street Oriokuta Ota.
The suspect was arrested following the report by the victim’s mother who reported at Onipanu Divisional headquarter Ota that she discovered a blood stain in the pants of her daughter which raised her suspicion consequent upon which she removed the pants from the girl and further discovered that she was actually bleeding from her private part.
On enquiry, the girl disclosed to her how the suspect lured her into his room and had carnal knowledge of her.
Upon the complaint, the DPO Onipanu Division, SP Sangobiyi Johnson, detailed his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested. He has since confessed to the commission of the crime, attributing it to the handiwork of the devil.
The victim has been taken to hospital for medical attention and report.
Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, has directed that the case be transferred to the Anti-human trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Eleweran for further investigation and prosecution.
