34-year-old married man identified as Godwin Iroro has been arrested by police detectives, for allegedly defiling his friend’s 10-year-old daughter (name withheld).
The suspect was apprehended on November 25 after the victim’s father, Chukwudi Chime, filed a police report after seeing his daughter’s strange and awkward movements.
When questioned, the young girl admitted that when her father was not at home, her father’s buddy, a father of four who also lives in the same house at Ajegunle, Lagos, had carnal knowledge of her.
CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, the state police command’s public relations officer, confirmed the incident, stating preliminary investigation found that both men are separated from their spouses. While the victim lives with her father at the above residence, the suspect’s four children reside in Asaba, Delta State, with their mother.
During interrogation, the suspect admitted to the crime but blamed it on the devil. He also admitted to just sexually abusing the young girl twice before the crime was discovered.
Angered by the pedophile’s horrific behavior, the Commissioner of Police, ordered that he be transferred to the Police Command’s Gender Unit for discreet investigation and diligent prosecution.
According to Ajisebutu, the CP advises licentious men who do not control their restless manhoods to cease from such vile acts or face serious repercussions.
