LAGOS— THE Police in Lagos State are quizzing a 40-year-old man, one Hakeem, popularly known as Baba Iwura, for allegedly defiling a seven-year-old girl.
It was gathered that the incident occurred at the residence of the suspect, 3, Third Avenue, Okemoro Street, Magbon, along Badagry expressway, last Sunday.
It was learnt that the Baba Iwura usually takes permission from Mrs Tawio Fathia, the girl’s mother to send her on errands every Sunday when his wife and children had gone to church.
But unknown to the victim’s mother, the errands were a guise to abuse her daughter. According to reports, the game had been going on for a while without the knowledge of the victim’s parents.
The bubble burst on that fateful day when he asked her to run errand for him as usual which terminated in his having carnal knowledge of the girl.
It was learnt that the little girl innocently told her playmates what Baba Iwura has been doing to her each time he sends her on errand.
In the process, the victim’s elder sister overheard her and immediately alerted their parents who quizzed the victim and she admitted.
Feeling betrayed by Hakeem’s action, the parents of the victim, Mr. and Mrs. Tawio Fathia immediately reported the matter at the Area K Police station and the suspect was picked up.
Medical test from Badagry General Hospital confirmed that the suspect actually penetrated her.
