A middle-aged man, whose crazy urge for sex, lost his sense of reasoning, dragged his neighbour’s underaged daughter into his room and forcefully defiled her, has been arrested.
The unwholesome act, Crime Puzzle gathered, has further exposed his long time beastly act of incest, committed against his three biological daughters.
The suspect, 52-year-old Kayode Adeniyi, who resides at 12, Abere-Ifa Street, Ijoko in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, was arrested by police detectives attached to Agbado Division, following a complaint by the sexually assaulted girl’s aunt.
The said aunt had gone to the station with the girl to report the case, saying that, her niece (the 10-year-old victim) had gone to the suspect’s apartment to enquire if any of his daughters mistakingly took in the clothes she spread outside, and that the randy man forcefully dragged her into his room, covered her mouth with pillow and had sexual intercourse with her.
Knowing the import of his action as criminal, especially if caught in the act, the suspect threatened the victim with a knife, saying he would kill her if she attempted shouting.
Acting on the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the station, CSP Kehinde Kuranga, detailed his detectives to the scene and effected the suspect’s arrest.
According to a release made available to our reporter, Ogun State Police spokesman (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said, “On interrogation, the suspect confessed forcefully having carnal knowledge of the girl, and also admitted threatening her with a knife, the more reason the minor could not scream, until he satisfied his sexual urge”,
The PPRO disclosed further that, a discreet investigation into the suspect’s past, revealed his sexcapede on his three underaged biological daughters, an allegation he could not deny.
However, according to the PPRO, the victim has been taken to a hospital for medical examination and treatment, adding that the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun has directed the Family Support Unit (SFU) of Sango-Otta Area Command to take over the case for in depth investigation and diligent prosecution.
