A 44-year-old father, Kabiru Oke, and his 19-year-old son, Faruq, have been arrested for allegedly defiling and impregnating a 13-year old girl at No 1 Olatikupo Street, Egbeda, Lagos, where the victim lived with them.
The State’s Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Bala Elkana, said, on March 27, 2019, the Command’s Gender Unit received a complaint of defilement of a minor reported by the mother against the husband of her elder sister and his son.
“The victim lived with the perpetrators for a couple of years. The affairs between the minor and Kabiru started on 20th October, 2018, with the suspect having constant sexual intercourse with her.
However, Faruq started having unlawful carnal knowledge of the same minor on 10th January 2019. The suspects have constantly threatened to kill the victim if she ever tells anybody about the affairs,” he said.
According to Elkana, the girl exposed them when her mother suspected some changes in her and discovered that she was pregnant.
The suspects have since been charged to Magistrate Court 2 Ogba for defilement and adjourned till May 13, 2019, while the suspects were remanded at Kirikiri prison.
