I Did Not Force Her – 30-Year Old Who Defiled 10-Year Old For A Year Says

The Lagos state police command has arrested a 30-year-old identified only as Adigun for defiling a 10-year-old. According to reports, Adigun has been defiling her since she was 9 and in Pry 5 at. The suspect lives at Olorunkemi Street, Bariga area of Lagos. Adigun reportedly drags her into his apartment whenever the child was on her way to the mosque to pray around 6am. He did this for a year without the child’s parents noticing anything. The cat was let out of the bag during a truth or dare game at the child’s school with her friends. They had asked themselves to swear on never having sex with anyone, while everyone said no, the child was quiet. The school’s counsellor was alarmed. Coordinator for Child Protection Network, Toyin Okanlawon, who reported the matter, while speaking with New Telegraph said; “She suddenly became calm when her friends asked her to swear. That was what drew the attention of the counsellor, who asked her what the problem was. The victim opened up to her on how their neighbour had been having marathon sex with her for over a year. A medical test later confirmed she had been abused. The suspect confessed at the police station that whenever he does not go to work, he would defile the minor. Adigun’s family had been threatening the victim’s parents, which was why I took up the case. I want them to get justice. The suspect also claimed that the girl used to come to his room to seek assistance, that he didn’t force her. When the victim told her mother about the abuse, she said the girl was talking nonsense because the rapist’s sister is a close friend to the victim’s mother.” Photo Credit: Getty
