Friday Akinlaja, a 26-year-old Prophetess’ son, has been remanded at the Olokuta Medium Prison for raping 9-year-old girl in Oda area of Akure, Ondo state capital.
The suspect said to be the son of a popular Prophetess of a Pentecostal Church in Akure, was arrested by operatives of the Ondo State Police Command after the crime was reported by neighbours which subsequently culminated in his arraignment in court on Monday, for sexually abusing the minor.
Daily Post reported that the suspect who was dragged before Magistrate Olanipekun Mayomi, on a one-count charge of rape and defilement of the minor, blamed the devil for his crime. It was gathered that he gave the sum of ‘N110’ to the 9-year-old girl, after raping her.
Dr. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese, a medical practitioner who first shared the story wrote;
“The man decided to take advantage of the little girl because of the poor status of her parents.
“The poor girl was yet to have her meal all day as 8 pm (on the day of the incident) and the man came visiting.
“The man came visiting when her mum had gone out to look for money to feed her children.
“He then decided that the girl should follow him so he could buy her some bread and Ankara, only to rape the poor girl and give her a pantry of N110.
“A sum which she couldn’t even make use of again because of the pains and anguish had taken over,” he said.
