Ogun: Police arrest father, neighbour for defiling 7-year-old girl
The Ogun Police Command on Tuesday, paraded a 77-year-old father, Adedamola Idowu for allegedly defiling his seven years old daughter.
The Police also paraded Idowu’s 26-year-old neighbour, Oluwatobi Adebisi, after they were arrested at Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode for the alleged defilement.
The Police Commissioner, Abiodun Alamutu paraded the suspects alongside others at Elewe eran Police headquarters, Abeokuta.
About seven suspects were paraded for offences related to defilement, cultism, and kidnapping.
Speaking on the offences, Alamutu described the 77-year-old man as a “randy father who has been having unlawful carnal knowledge of the 7yr old girl with his neighbour.”
He said, “The above randy father and his neighbor have been having unlawful carnal knowledge of the 7yr old girl. She has been referred for counseling and emotional therapy, and the case has been transferred to SCID for discreet investigation and prosecution.”
Alamutu also paraded five suspected cultists, Francis Okere, Ogunkoya Olayinka, Awotungase Samson, Abalo Ayomide, and Saka Olawale.
He said they were arrested in Abeokuta, Ogijo, and Sagamu with different weapons.
He warned that Ogun “will not be conducive for criminals as well as their sponsors, because we are determined to take the battle to their doorsteps.”
Alamutu said, “They (the criminals) have only two options. It’s either they turn up a new leaf or relocate from this state. Failure to choose any of these two options will lead them to meet their Waterloo.
“However, we are aware that some people were lured into cultism without knowing the implication, and so they got trapped.
“The Command has opened a window of amnesty to such people. So they should renounce their membership of these groups and surrender all arms and ammunition in their custody.”
“They have a period of one month to do that,” he added.
