The Police in Ogun State have arrested an Abeokuta based website designer, Abiodun Amosu(42 ), for defiling his 16 year old housemaid.
Amosu who lives at the Ibara housing Estate was said to have dragged the girl into his bedroom last Thursday while his wife was away in Lagos and allegedly defiled her.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Sunday, stated that the suspect was arrested following a complaint at the Ibara Police division by the Benue state born victim, who was accompanied to the station by a member of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR).
The victim told the Police that Amosu forcefully dragged her into his bedroom and sexually assaulted her, and even when she was shouting after the man has had his way, he still beat her up and sent her away.
According to the Police Spokesman, a CDHR member who sighted the victim in her pitiable condition, took her to the Police station to report the incident.
“Upon the report, the DPO Ibara division, Dada Olusegun, led detectives to the scene where the randy suspect was arrested. On interrogation, the suspect initially denied the allegation, but when confronted with the blood stained bed sheet in his bedroom, he admitted to the commission of the offence.
“The victim who claimed to be a virgin before the incident has been taken to general hospital for medical attention and the medical report has confirmed that the victim was actually sexually abused,” Oyeyemi stated.
He explained that the Police commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, has directed that the case be transferred to the anti – human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for proper investigation and prosecution of the suspect.
