Pedophiles are highly on the increase in our modern day society, but the long hands of the law has finally caught up with two culprits who were caught defiling under- aged kids. One of the accused was a 20-year old house-help, Obong Thompson, an employee of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Dopemu .
Investigation revealed that the evil act was perpetuated when the girl’s parents were away at work. Taking advantage of their absence, the randy houseboy allegedly grabbed his boss’ six-year old daughter (name withheld) pulled off her clothes and raped her severally. Mr. and Mrs. Dopemu got wind of the of the incident when they returned from work and noticed their daughter’s unusual mood. They later discovered blood in her private part. Subsequently, the matter was reported to Bode Thomas Divisional Police Headquarters and Thompson was arrested and detained.
The unrepentant house-help in his statement maintained that the girl’s body aroused him sexually, “When both of us were at home alone, I saw her body naked. I was charged and emotionally carried away.” After been arraigned before a family court sitting at Tinubu, Lagos, Thompson was remanded at Kirikiri prisons, Apapa, Lagos.
In a similar occurrence, another 34-year old man, Kayode Oladosu was also caught having carnal knowledge of his neighbour’s 10-year old daughter.
Oladosu, from Ibadan, Oyo State, Southwest Nigeria, reportedly lured the little girl into his room at Kudeyibu Estate, Isheri-Osun, Lagos. Thus, arraigned before an Ejibgo magistrate court.
Her parents noticed that their daughter’s private part had been tampered with when she returned home with blood stain on her dress and under-wears. Her clues led to the arrest of the culprit. Narrating her biter experience in the hands of the dare-devil rapist , the victim said that she was sent to buy some items in a provision store in their area when Oladosu lured her to his room and forced himself on her, inflicting pains on her private part.
However, while defending himself in the court , Oladosu claimed he was in a financial mess and could not get money to give to women in order to have sex with them because he has no steady job. He said he did not want to injure the girl but only wanted to satisfy his sexual desire.
“I did not intend to injure her,” he explained. He therefore pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
After listening to both parties , the presiding magistrate, Mrs. E.E. Kubenje, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum
