52-year-old man, Isiaka Afolabi, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl, Joy (pseudonym).
City Round learnt that Afolabi works as a gardener in a white garment church in Mushin area of Lagos.
It was gathered that Joy’s mother had sent her on an errand on Thursday, October 24, in the evening when Afolabi lay in ambush for her. He was said to have lured her to the church premises where he lived and had canal knowledge of her.
It was learnt that the mother of the girl became worried when she did not return in time and went on a search.
The mother, who reportedly noticed uneasiness in Joy when she eventually returned home, grilled her on her whereabouts. After much pressure, she was said to have opened up to her mother.
News correspondent gathered that the family alerted a rights group, Advocate for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network of Nigeria to the incident.
The case was consequently reported to the police at the Area D Command Mushin, and Afolabi was apprehended.
The ACVPN Coordinator, Mr Ebenezer Omejalile, stated that the group was following the case at the gender unit of the Area Command handling it.
He said, “We learnt that the man defiled a 13-year-old girl inside a white garment church on Banire Street, Mushin. He was taken into the custody of the Gender/Unit Area D Command. The officer in charge of the unit assured us that the case would be prosecuted.
“The incident occurred last Thursday. The man in question is a gardener in the church where he resides. The survivor and her mother are also members of the church.
“That day, the survivor’s mother sent her on an errand and she stayed longer than expected. Her mother was worried and went in search of her. She eventually showed up and after much pressure, she confessed to the mother that the gardener had been molesting her for some time and it was the fourth time he would abuse her.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bala Elkana, promised to get an update on the case and get back to our correspondent. He had, however, yet to do so as of press time.
But a police source at the Area D Command told City Round that Afolabi had been charged.
