The Ogun State Police Command says its operatives have arrested an 84-year-old man, Stephen Jack, for allegedly raping an eight-year-old girl in the Ijebu Ode area of the state.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this to journalists in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Saturday.
Oyeyemi revealed that the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Obalende divisional headquarters by the father of the victim.
He said the father of the victim told the police that he discovered that his daughter was bleeding from her private part and when he asked the little girl of the cause, she informed him that the suspect had sex with her.
“Upon the report, the DPO Obalende division, SP Murphy Salami, detailed his detectives to the scene, where the randy old man was apprehended.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the old man is a known paedophile in the area.
“The victim has been taken to the General Hospital, Ijebu Ode for medical treatment,” the police spokesman said.
Oyeyemi added that the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department for more investigation and possible prosecution.
