Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has arrested a 53-year-old block bricklayer, Michael Adebayo, who allegedly had canal knowledge of 14-year-old daughter of his friend.
The offence was alleged to have been committed at Elekoyangan area of Ilorin, Kwara State capital, on Monday.
According to a statement by the spokesman of NSCDC in the state, Babawale Afolabi, which was made available to journalists in Ilorin on Tuesday, the bricklayer lured the hawking teenager with money into his workshop located in the area.
The statement read, “The suspect committed the offence in his shop located at Ori Oke, Elekoyangan area of the state capital.
“The victim was said to be hawking puff-puff and used to carry the puff- puff to Michael’s shop from where he lured her with N200.
“The suspect, in his confessional statement, said the girl used to hawk puff-puff which she usually brings to his shop and he took advantage of her naivety to lure her with N200. He also confessed to have done this on a few occasions.”
In a related development, NSCDC also paraded one Tajudeen Hammed, 31, who allegedly raped 16-year-old girl.
Afolabi said the two rape cases have been transferred to the command’s Intelligence and Investigations Department for further investigation.
