39-year-old man, Segun Oni, has been arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old girl, Amina Ajibade under a mango tree in Kwara state.
Spokesman of the NSCDC Kwara command, Babawale Zaid Afolabi, disclosed this in a statement in Ilorin on Wednesday.
Afolabi said the case was reported at the NSCDC Igbaja Divisional office on June 14, 2021, by the victim’s grandfather who caught the suspect in the act of having canal knowledge with his 12-year-old grand daughter under a mango tree.
“After a thorough investigation, it was discovered that the victim was suffering from congenital mental deficiency which impaired her communication and social skills. Literarily, she hardly talks to people,” he added.
Afolabi, said a medical report obtained from a hospital in Ijagbo, in Oyun Local Government Area of the State, showed penetration and bruises in the private part of the victim.
He further said the suspect confessed that on several occasions, he had lured the young girl with gifts to isolated areas to take advantage of her.
