How Sexual Violation of a 10-year-old girl by a 30-Year-Old Man Was Discovered a Year After it Started

Sexually violation is real and the culprits consists mostly of people who live in our community, vicinity and even in our own homes.

A 30-year-old man who allegedly has been defiling a minor since she was 9 years old in primary five residing at Olorunkemi Street, Bariga area of Lagos has been arrested by the Lagos State police command.

During interrogation, the man, identified simply as Adigun, told the police that he didn’t force the 10-year-old girl into having sex with him, New Telegraph reports.

It was gathered that Adigun who usually drags the girl into his apartment and defiled her whenever she was going to mosque to pray at 6 a.m, has been enmeshed in the sad act with the underage girl since January 2017 without her parents noticing anything.

The incident threw members of the community who saw Adigun as an easy going person into confusion. The sexual violation of the victim would have continued, but for divine intervention.

Some of the girls said yes, but the victim simply kept mute. The Coordinator for Child Protection Network, Mr Toyin Okanlawon, who reported the matter, said:

”She suddenly became calm when her friends asked her to swear. That was what drew the attention of the counsellor, who asked her what the problem was.

The victim opened up to her on how their neighbour had been having marathon sex with her for over a year. Medical test later confirmed she had been abused.

The suspect also claimed that the girl used to come to his room to seek assistance, that he didn’t force her.”

Report also has it that the victim once told her mother about the abuse, but the insensitive mother said the girl was talking nonsense because Adigun’s sister is a close friend of hers.

“The situation would have been averted, if the mother of the victim had acted fast after her daughter told her about the abuse. When the victim told her mother, the woman said the girl was talking nonsense.

The mother couldn’t believe that such a thing could be happening right under her nose. Adigun’s sister is a close friend to the victim’s mother.”

It was also learnt that the first time Adigun had sex with the girl; he was alleged to have covered her mouth with cloth. The case has been transferred to the gender unit of the police command for further investigation.

Adigun will reportedly be charged to court soon.
