70 year old Gabriel Akindele was arrested by Ogun state police command for allegedly raping an 8-year-old deaf and dumb girl in a toilet at 7, Michael Ayegusi Street, Owode Ijako in Ado-Odo Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.
In a statement released by the state police command spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the septuagenarian reportedly lured the young girl into the toilet where he had canal knowledge of her.
The victim’s mother noticed some funny reactions from her daughter. Using signs, she asked her what the matter was, and the little girl, confiding in her mother, related her ordeal with the old man whom she referred to as “baba”.
Giving a statement, Oyeyemi said,
“The girl informed her mother of the incident, which prompted the mother to report the matter to police. The DPO of Sango Ota, SP Akinsola Ogunwale, detailed detectives to the scene and the randy old man was subsequently arrested. On interrogation, he confessed to committing the crime. It was discovered that he lured the girl to the toilet, where he unlawfully had carnal knowledge of her. The commissioner of police, 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, CIID, for proper investigation.”
Meanwhile, the accused would soon be charged to court.
