A 7 Year Old Boy, Wisdom Adefemi, Accused His Father, Olusegun, Of Sexually Abusing His 3 Year Old Sister, Favour.
According to Wisdom, his father not only abused their sister 5 times, he also attempted to penetrate him and his 5-year-old brother, Godspower, through the anus.But they refused as they could not bear the pain.
Giving a graphic details of their ordeal, the little boy said:
“My daddy slept with Favour from here (pointing at the private part of his sister.) He put her on the ground and then he did it. It was five times. He wanted to do my own from the back but I refused. He wanted to do Godspower too. When we refused, he started beating us.”
Parading the suspect, the police boss said the arrest was made at No. 6 Ipakan Street, Ijede, after an official of Lagos Neighborhood Safety Corps (LNSC), Adekoya Sesan, reported the incident.
He explained that the suspect, Adeyemi, had unsupervised access to the children ever since the separation between him and his wife. But the suspect denied the allegation, insisting that he was innocent. He explained his shock at his children’s allegation.
The suspect said:
“I am shocked at the allegations. Never have i done it and I will never do it, hearing that my children accused me of raping their sister, they never said it before me. I thought the police would bring them before me and ask them so that I can hear it from them directly but the police did not.”
The officer on duty at the time, Mr Imohimi, said the suspect inflicted grievous injury in the private part of the child as a result of forceful penetration.
“The girl is being taken to Mirabel Medical Centre for examination and treatment while her siblings are being placed in temporary home. The suspect is to be charged to court at the end of investigation.”
The suspect is now in the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, to be charged to court soon.
