43-Year-Old Farmer With 4 Wives Arrested For Raping His Friend’s 12-Year-Old Daughter In Ondo

Men of the Ondo State Police command have arrested a 43-year-old farmer, Francis Joseph, for allegedly raping a 12-year-old daughter of his friend. Joseph was said to have lured the young girl to his house in Lugbogi area in Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State and forcefully defiled her.

It was gathered that Joseph who is married to four wives with nine children after having carnal knowledge of the girl, told her not to tell anybody about the incident or else she would die mysteriously.

A family source explained that the little girl was scared to tell her parents until she started bleeding in the middle of the night and was rushed to the hospital.

She disclosed that at least five of the suspect’s children are older than the rape victim who sees Joseph as her father.

She said “the 12-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital, bleeding profusely from the private part having been defiled and sexually abused, she is still in the hospital till now.

“Her parents reported the incident at the Enuowa police station but to the chagrin of all neighbours, Joseph had left his home before dawn before the arrival of the policemen.”

She, however, said that Joseph was arrested at a park in Ondo town on Thursday while trying to board a bus to Lagos and was subsequently handed over to the police.

The young girl, it was gathered, insisted that the suspect raped her in his house and warned her not to inform anybody.
While the family of the suspect had sent emissaries to the victim’s family to beg and settle the matter amicably, the parents of the little girl insisted on bringing the suspect to book.
The state Ministry of Women Affairs, according to findings, has waded into the matter to ensure that the incident is not swept under the carpet.
Police image maker, Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said the case had been transferred to the State police headquarters in Akure, the state capital.
Joseph said investigation into the matter had commenced, adding that the suspect would be charged to court after completing its investigations.
