52-Year-Old Bus Driver With 3 Wives Rapes 7-Year-Old Girl In Lagos
A 7-year-old girl narrated how she was
defiled by her mother’s client, Moruf Mohammed, at No. 5, Samsudeen Street,
Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos. It was learned that the suspect raped the victim in their
apartment at about 1p.m. last Wednesday, when her mother went to the market. When the victim’s mother returned from the
market and found her bleeding, with her school uniform dress stained with
blood, she revealed that one of the mother’s clients, who had come to see the
mother, raped her (the child).
According to the primary one pupil:
"immediately I came back from school, Baba Moruf came to the house and
asked after my mother. I told him that she was not at home. He then gave me
N1,000, pushed me towards the door and removed my pants. When I tried to shout,
he used his hands to cover my mouth. He first inserted his hands inside me
before using his manhood on me."
The N1,000 was for her mother - Suspect
The suspect, 52-year-old Moruf Mohammed, who
initially said he did not know what came over him, and that it was the work of
the devil at the Juvenile and Women Centre, JWC, Igbogbo Divisional
headquarters, Ikorodu, denied the allegation at the Police Command, Ikeja.
According to him, “I am a bus driver from Ijebu-Ode in Ogun State and I have
three wives. The victim’s mother called me on phone to get money for the job she
was doing for me. “When I got there, she was not at home. But I met her
daughter, who had just returned from school. I went to see the victim’s mother
because she is a prophetess and does some spiritual work for me. Unfortunately,
her mother was not at home, so I gave her N1,000. I did not touch her. A few
days later, they arrested me for raping the little girl."
According to the prophetess: "I knew Moruf
Mohammed sometime ago as he comes for some spiritual works. On Wednesday, I
called him to get money for the work I have done for him. When I got home
later, I met my daughter bleeding profusely with her uniform stained with
blood. Immediately, I took her to the school where I was told nothing like that
happened and that this was the handiwork of an adult. "So I asked my daughter who did that to
her? She said it was Moruf Mohammed, the client that gave her money to give to
me. When we got to his place, my daughter identified him as the man that had
defiled her and he was later arrested."
According to Vanguard, the victim was taken to Mirabel Centre, where a test
revealed that she was sexually abused. The case, initially reported at the
Igbogbo Divisional headquarters, Ikorodu, has been transferred to the Gender
Unit for further investigation.
