A 24-year-old man, Emmanuel Ojelade has become the guest of the operatives of Kemta Division of the Ogun State Police Command who arrested him on Wednesday. Ojelade was arrested for defiling a 9 year old girl at Iyana Mortuary in Abeokuta.
Mr Muyiwa Adejobi, the spokesman of the Command disclosed to Street Journal that police authorities were informed of the act by Adebayo Kehinde, the father of the victim around 8.30 pm on Tuesday evening. He said the incident was reported just after the suspect forcefully had carnal knowledge of the girl.
Street Journal gathered that Ojelade, a carpenter had pretended he wanted to send the girl on an errand and lured her into his room after which he locked the door and had his way with the primary school pupil. The girl’s screams attracted neighbours who forced the door open in order to save the girl.
Ojelade, a father of two however claimed he could not penetrate and so he spilled his semen on the girl after having inserted his finger into the girl’s private part. He claimed that was what led to the bleeding noticed on the girl and not penetrative sex. He pleaded for mercy as he claimed he was influenced by the devil.
DSP Adejobi made it known that the suspect who is cooling his feet at the Kemta Division will soon be transferred to the State CID Eleweran Abeokuta for further investigation.
Speaking on the development, Mr. Ikemefuna Okoye, the Commissioner of Police, Ogun State vowed to put an end to such inhuman acts and other social vices in the state.
