A generator repairer, Ajibike Oyekan, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly sexually molesting a seven-year-old and six-year-old pupil in Ogun State.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the 30-year-old suspect allegedly lured the pupils into his house with gifts whenever they were coming back from school.
It was also learnt that when the victims were in the suspect’s house, he allegedly had sex with one of them, which often time made them to get home late.
Our correspondent gathered that the victims’ parents had gone to the school to complain about the time their children got home.
The teacher was said to have questioned the pupils and they reportedly said they usually stopped at Oyekan’s place.
Further questioning revealed that Oyekan had allegedly been sexually abusing the pupils and this prompted the parents to report at the Sagamu Police Division.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the parents reported the case to the police after they discovered that the suspect had been sexually abusing their children.
Oyeyemi said, “The name of the suspect that alleged to have sexually abused two female pupils is Ajibike Oyekan, a 30-year-old generator repairer.
“The two victims have been taken to the General Hospital, Sagamu, Ogun State. The hospital report confirmed that the hymen of the seven-year-old girl is no longer there, while the six-year-old girl had no penetration.
“The case has been transferred to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labor Unit in Abeokuta.”
Oyeyemi advised parents to watch their children and stop sending them on errands at odd hours.
He also urged parents to develop cordial relations with their children so that they could be free to share secrets with them.
He said, “The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Hammed Iliyasu, also warned parents to take good care of their kids, especially the female ones. Parents are so careless that they would send their children on errand in the night. Some parents will even leave their children in the care of just anybody; anything can happen in such a situation.
“Parents also need to be friendly with their children so that when anything happens, the children would be able to confide in them.”
