Police operatives from Meiran Division led by the DPO, SP Shokunbi Toyosi have arrested a 40-year old man, simply identified as Efe, who allegedly defiled his neighbour’s 5-year old girl
CANDIIDONLINE gathered that the incident happened on May 20 at No.138 Meiran Road, Omoroga area Meiran, Lagos, where they reside.
The arrest followed a report to the Police by the victim’s mother, who allegedly caught Efe red-handed while in the act and immediately went to report at the police station.
According to the victim, Efe lured her into his apartment after her mother sent her to buy gala to eat because she was hungry, while she was returning he lured her inside, locked his door from behind, then pulled her pant, asked her to place her hand on a chair while bending and he reportedly penetrated her.
The dastardly act got exposed after the mother had waited for her, then came out to look for her and eventually saw her daughter coming out from Efe’s apartment with the zip of her trouser open.
She asked her what happened and the little girl told her everything.
According to the mother, she checked her private part and saw that she was abused before she raised alarm which attracted other neighbours, who then told her to report to the Police.
However, Police source at the Station said that the victim was referred to Mirabel Centre for medical test which will be used to charge Efe before the Family Court in Ogba, Lagos.
CANDIIDONLINE reports that the alleged offence attracts several years of imprisonment if Efe is eventually charged before the Court, tried and found guilty.
