The Lagos state police command have arrested a 44-year-old man, Kabiru Oke and his son, Farouq, 19, for alleged serial rape and impregnating a teenager who lived with her aunt, the man’s wife.
According to the police, the girl was raped over a period of four months at their 1, Olatikupo Street, Egbeda residence. The victim had reported the matter to her aunt who always shut her up and covered up for her husband. The son got involved when he caught his father in the act.
According to the victim, her aunt’s husband started molesting her in October last year when he instructed her to fetch water for him.
“He asked me to watch water for him to bath and I did. When I brought the water, he pushed me inside the bathroom and raped me. From then, he was doing it regularly. I told my aunt but she did not do anything about it. The man continued doing it since his wife did not take any action. Then, in January, Farouq started his own. He saw his father sleeping with me and then, he started doing it. The man was sleeping with me and Farouq was doing it too,” the child told Child Protection Network’s (CPN) Precious Ndukwu.
The spokesperson of the Lagos state Police command, DSP Bala Elkana, who confirmed the case, said it was reported at the Geneder Unit by the child’s mother on March 27, adding that the defilement by Oke commenced on October 20.
“The second suspect, being the son of the first suspect started having unlawful carnal knowledge of the same minor on January 10. The suspects have constantly threatened to kill the victim if she ever told anybody about the affairs. The victim exposed them when her mother suspected some changes in her and discovered that she is pregnant. The survivor was taken to Mirabel Centre by Gender Unit for medical examination. The two suspects were arrested and charged to Magistrate Court two Ogba for defilement. The case was adjourned for May 13, while the suspects were remanded in Kirikiri prison.” Bala said

Sanwo-Olu did not buy N187m car, aide replies PDP
The Lagos State Government has denied a claim by the Peoples Democratic Party that the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, acquired a N187m official vehicle.
The Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Gboyega Akosile, in a statement, on Sunday, said the vehicle used by Sanwo-Olu, which he said was “certainly not N187m,” was purchased over a year ago.
According to Akosile, the Lagos chapter of the PDP had started exhibiting signs of “long-term depression” by joining the “infamous league of fake news promoters.”
He said, “As a major political party, one will expect the PDP to be more circumspect in its criticism of the state governor, especially along the lines of progress and development for the state and not reducing itself to purveyor of fake news.
“For the avoidance of doubt, His Excellency, the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, did not buy a N187m SUV as his official vehicle. In fact, the governor has not procured any vehicle for official use.
“The vehicle the governor uses, if that’s what the PDP is referring to, was purchased almost a year ago and it certainly is not N187m. The PDP needs to check well before coming out with fallacious claims next time.”
Akosile, speaking on the PDP’s demand for Sanwo-Olu’s assets declaration, said it was clear that the party and its members are delusional.
He said, “While it’s not legally mandatory for Governor Sanwo-Olu to make his assets declaration public, he is certainly not perturbed about the request. The PDP should know by now that it’s a choice.
“However, Governor Sanwo-Olu will not be dragged into matters that have no direct positive impact on the lives of the people of Lagos State.
“Therefore the PDP should keep its unsolicited advice and concentrate on putting its already collapsed house in order if it hopes to be relevant in the political firmament of Lagos State now or in the future.”
