Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu
A 14-year-old girl (name withheld) has reported her father to the men of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly defiling her.
It was gathered that the incident happened in the Ikorodu area of the state and police operatives attached to Ipakodo Division, Ikorodu, have since arrested the teenager’s father, one 45-year-old Kayode Adeyanju.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Muyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a statement on Monday titled, ‘Lagos Police Arrest Man For Defiling Daughter, Suspected Cultists Arrested With Arms In Lagos Hotel’.
“The survivor personally reported the case at Ipakodo Police Station, Ikorodu on the 7th June, 2021, after her horrible ordeal in the hands of her father and the police operatives arrested the suspect.
“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has condemned the act and ordered that the case be transferred to the Gender Unit of the Command for further investigation,” the statement partly read.
Adejobi also said police operatives attached to the Morogbo Division on Sunday night, acting “on a tip-off from the management of House 2 Hotel, Igbekele Morogbo, Lagos State, that some boys suspected to be cultists were holding a meeting in the hotel, arrested seven suspected cultists”.
“The suspects include Hameed Salami, m, 35; Ogunlade Adewale, m, 30; Sunday Ogbemudia, m, 36; Okekunle Segun, m, 26; Imole Kingsley, m, 23; Rasak Lekan, m, 26; and Osuya Innocent, m, 23. Items recovers from them include one locally made pistol, two live cartridges, one axe, assorted charms,” the statement added.
Adejobi said Odumosu ordered that the case be transferred to the Command’s Special Squad, Ikeja, for “discreet investigation”.
Odumosu reportedly reiterated the command’s commitment to continually tackle cultism and other crimes in the state.
