SAN FRANCISCO, November 09, (THEWILL) – The Police in Ogun State have arrested a septuagenarian, Pa. Gabriel Akindele, for allegedly sexually abusing an eight year-old girl, who is dumb and deaf.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the alleged crime, said the suspect, Pa Akindele was arrested following complaint lodged by the victim's mother at the Sango Divisional Police Station.

Reports indicate that Akindele, who resides at the Owode-Ijako area of Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government of the state, lured the girl to the toilet and raped her there.

The victim's mother discovered 'strange' behaviour in her daughter and upon asking through a sign language, the little girl pointed her finger the private part.

When the mother examined the girl closely, she broke down in tears when it dawned on her that the innocent child had been violated and quickly reported the shocking find to the Police while the old man had confessed to committing the alleged crime.

“Upon the report, the DPO Sango Ota, SP Akinsola Ogunwale detailed detectives to the scene and the randy old man was subsequently arrested. On interrogation, he opened up to the commission of the crime. It was discovered that he lured the girl to the toilet where he unlawfully had carnal knowledge of her,” Oyeyemi stated.

“The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has also directed that the case be transferred to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for proper investigation.”
