Culled From TheNation
A 20 year-old, Afeez Raimi has been arrested for allegedly having carnal knowledge of a two-year old girl (names withheld) in Ibadan on Monday. The Nation gathered that the victim, whose parents were tenants in the suspect’s grandfather’s house in Dalemo Street of Bembo area in Apata, Ibadan, Oyo State, reportedly wandered off from her parents’ rented apartment into Raimi’s room, a tailor, where he perpetrated the act. The suspect, who is also a SSS2 pupil of the African Church Grammar School in Apata, confessed to the crime, attributing his act to “the work of the devil.” Raimi said he did not know what prompted him to commit the crime. “I was returning from somewhere, when she followed me into my room. I was ironing and she was sleeping on the bed. So I dipped my finger into her,” he said. The police immediately swung into action and arrested the suspect when the matter was reported at a nearby police station. The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Olabisisi Ilobanafor, said the girl was subjected to medical examination, which revealed that her private part was penetrated and was bleeding.
The victim is now on intensive medical care due to the high temperature she now suffers since the incident.
