The police said the man confessed to the crime after arrest.
A 26-year-old man, Kehinde Adejuwon, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly having sex with a two-year-old baby at Oja Odan in Ado/Odo-Ota Local Government Area of the state.
The Ogun police spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the arrest, said the suspect confessed to the crime.
“The Ogun State Police Command recently arrested one Kehinde Adejuwon, male, 26 years old, for having canal knowledge of a two- year- old baby at Oja Odan in Ogun State,” the spokesperson said.
Mr. Adejobi added that the suspect was arrested by a team of detectives attached to Ayetoro Division of the command, led by the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ayetoro, Gbola Adigun. He said the suspect was arrested after the victim’s father alerted the police.
“The suspect, who confessed to the crime, regretted his actions. But he will be made to face the wrath of the law as the offence he committed is condemned by the law of our land and Nigerian culture and tradition,” the spokesperson told PREMIUM TIMES.
He said the Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Ikemefuna Okoye, has ordered that the case be transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Department, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for necessary action.
“The command will always wage wars on such terrible individuals who are fond of engaging themselves in this ungodly act. We will always work hand in hand with relevant agencies to put an end to this menace. Enough is enough,” he said.
