Men of the Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps have arrested one Femi Adejuwon for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl.
The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Philip Ayuba, made this disclosure in a statement on Tuesday.
The commandant stated that the suspect was a student of the Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State.
He said, “Information reaching us from concerned citizens in the Ijoka area of Akure on Sunday, April 12, 2020, was that a 16-year-old girl, who is currently seeking admission into a higher institution, was allegedly raped by one Femi Adejuwon, an undergraduate of the Accountancy Department of the Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti.
“During investigation, the victim narrated her ordeal in the hands of the suspect after being discharged from the Police Clinic, Akure.
“She said the suspect called her on the telephone to meet him in his friend’s place. On getting there, Femi Adejuwon took her in, shut the door and violated her.
“She was later rescued in a pool of her own blood.”
The NSCDC boss noted that the suspect had confessed to the crime, allegedly blaming the devil for his action, adding that investigation was still ongoing in the matter.
Ayuba said the suspect would be charged as soon as investigation was completed.
The commandant advised parents and guardians to keep watch over their children and wards, especially during this COVID-19 lockdown.
