MAN ARRESTED FOR RAPING EIGHT-YEAR GIRL IN LAGOS STATE


The Lagos State Police has arrested one Adetayo Razaq for raping an eight-year-old girl in the Ikorodu area of Lagos state.

The victim’s father told officials at the Ikorodu Police Station on Thursday last week that the suspect lured his daughter with biscuits.

Razaq, 28, reportedly took the girl to his room where he had carnal knowledge of her on March 31, taking advantage of her father’s absence.

Elkana said the girl’s father reported that he had left the girl with her two brothers – 10 and 12 years – but returned home and met her in pains.

According to him, the girl complained of discomfort and stomach aches and has been taken to a hospital for treatment and forensic examination.

“The suspect, a tiller and father of two, is arrested by detectives from the Juvenile Welfare Centre, Ikorodu Police Station.

“The Commissioner of Police has directed that the case be transferred to Gender Unit, Command Headquarters Ikeja for discreet investigation and diligent prosecution,” the statement said.
