Police Arrest Father For Allegedly Defiling Daughter

The Police Command in Lagos State has arrested 58-year-old commercial motorcyclist, Johnson Okon, for allegedly defiling his 14-year-old daughter in the Ikorodu area of the state, PUNCH Metro reports.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said during a press briefing on Tuesday that the victim’s mother did not believe her daughter when she informed her of the incident, adding that the mother’s inaction prompted the victim to seek refuge in Okon friend’s house.

Imohimi said, “The command’s Gender Unit is investigating a case of defilement reported by a 14-year-old girl against her father, Johnson Okon, 58, of Charismatic Road, Abule Berger, Ikorodu.

“According to the victim, after her father, who is a security man/okada rider, had defiled her, she reported to her mother, who did not believe her and warned her not to tell anybody.

“She added that because of her mother’s inaction, she ran away from home and sought refuge in the home of her father’s friend.

“The victim has been referred to the Mirabel Centre for medical examination.”

Similarly, a carpenter, Habib Abdullahi, 64, has also been arrested for defiling a six-year-old girl in Ikorodu, Lagos.

The CP, who paraded the suspect, said the mother of the victim informed the command of the incident, adding that the outcome of the investigation conducted revealed that the suspect took the victim into his room and sexually abused her.

He added that the victim, who was irritated by the suspect’s action, upon interrogation by her mother, identified Abdullahi as the rapist.

Imohimi said, “The Gender Unit is also investigating another case of defilement that occurred in the Ikorodu area of the state and reported by one Mrs Obinna, 37, of Selewu, Ikorodu on behalf of her six-year-old daughter against one Habib Abdullahi, 64, a carpenter of the same address as the complainant.

“During interrogation, it was revealed that onMonday,  December 3, 2018, around 10am, the suspect took the victim into his room and inserted his fingers in her private parts.

“However, her mother noticed that her daughter was unnecessarily irritated and withdrawn; so, she began to ask her questions and she revealed to the mother what Abdullahi had done to her. Investigation is ongoing into the two cases of defilement; the suspects will be charged to court soon.”

The command has also killed a suspected kidnapper, simply identified as Sunday, during a gun battle with the anti-kidnapping operatives in the Ikorodu area of the state.

Imohimi, while addressing journalists on Tuesday, said the operatives had stormed a hideout based on credible intelligence that the kidnappers, who had sneaked into the state, were planning to abduct some notable persons in the Iba area of Ojo Local Government Area.

He said one of the kidnappers was killed during an exchange of gunfire with the police, adding that two others were arrested and would be charged to court soon.

Imohimi stated, “Acting on credible intelligence received on Sunday, December 9, 2018, that a gang of kidnappers had sneaked into the state and were planning to abduct some notable persons in the Iba area of Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State, I directed the Commander, Anti-kidnapping Squad, to proactively ensure that they did not effectuate their plan.

“Consequently, the squad swung into action immediately, tapping into the intelligence resources of the command, and was able to locate them in their hideout at Imota, Ikorodu on Monday, December 10, 2018. However, when the hoodlums sighted the approaching operatives, they opened fire on them for which the police replied.

“During the exchange of fire, one Sunday was gunned down, while two others, Ebi Gabriel, 29, and Promise Ajele, 19, of Arogbo, Ese-Odo, Ondo State, were apprehended. One locally  made cut-to-size double-barrelled gun, one expended cartridge and three live cartridges were recovered from them.”

The CP, who said efforts were ongoing to arrest the fleeing members of the gang, added that the suspects would be charged to court after completion of investigation.
