A 65-year-old man, Sulaiman Rauf, has been arrested by detectives of the Ogun State police command for allegedly having unlawful carnal knowledge of a 10-year-old girl (names withheld).

Spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, hinted that the arrest followed a complaint lodged by father of the victim, Fahinhun Mathew, who reported at Idi-roko divisional headquarters that the suspect who is living in their neighborhood sent his daughter on an errand, and when the girl came back, she was lured into his room where he forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.

“When the girl came out of the suspect’s room, she quickly informed her father of what the suspect did to her, hence the report. Upon receiving the report, the DPO Idi-roko Division, CSP Aloko Amodu, swiftly detailed his detectives to No. 7 Araromi Street, Ilase, where the suspect resides and he was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the suspect admitted having carnal knowledge of the victim but claimed not to know what led him to it. The victim has been taken to a general hospital for medical attention and report.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, 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 investigation and prosecution.”
