The Ondo state police command has arrested a 43-year-old man identified as Francis Joseph for allegedly raping his friend’s 12-year-old daughter in the Lugbogi area of Ondo in Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State.

It was gathered that Joseph who is married to four wives with nine children warned the little girl after having carnal knowledge of the girl, 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 parent until she started bleeding in the middle of the night and was rushed to the hospital. 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 parent 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. However, Joseph denied the allegation of defiling the young girl. He said the people of the community conspired against him and implicated him for the crime. Joseph did not explain the reasons for running away from the community.

We gathered that the family of the suspect had been pleading with the victim’s family to settle the matter amicably but the parents of the victim insisted in getting to the root of the matter. It was gathered that the State Ministry of Women affairs, has waded into the matter to ensure that the incident is not swept under the carpet and get justice for the victim who is currently hospitalised.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident said the case had been transferred to the State police headquarters in Akure, the state capital. He said the command has commenced an investigation into the matter with a pledge to charged the suspect to court after completing its investigation.
