A 34-year-old married man, Godwin Iroro, has been arrested by police detectives attached to Ajegunle Division in Lagos State Police Command for defiling his friend’s 10-year-old daughter (name withheld).

The suspect was arrested on Thursday, November 25, 2021, according to the police spokesman in the state, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu.

The PPRO disclosed that the victim’s father, Chukwudi Chime, who noticed the unusual and awkward movements of his daughter, probed to know what happened to her.

The little girl when questioned, had told her father that his friend, a father of four, who also lives in the same house at 5, Iyalode Street, Ajegunle, Lagos, had carnal knowledge of her when her father was not at home.

Preliminary investigation revealed that both men were separated from their wives.

While the victim lives with her father, the suspect’s four children live with their mother in Asaba, Delta State.

During interrogation, the suspects was said to have confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil.

He also confessed to have sexually abused the little girl only twice before the crime was uncovered.

With the paedophile’s act grossly condemned by the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, he immediately directed that he should be transferred to the Gender Unit of the police command for discreet investigation and diligent prosecution.

The police commissioner warned other men to keep themselves in check and desist from such act or face the grave consequences.
