The Police Command in Ogun State says it has arrested a 36-year-old suspect, Sikiru Ajibola, who allegedly raped a 5-year-old boy to death in the Ogijo area of Sagamu local government.

SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, disclosed this in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Saturday.

Oyeyemi explained that the suspect was arrested on Friday following a report lodged at Ogijo divisional headquarters by the Community Development Association (CDA) Chairman of Olorunwa Arogbeja Ogijo.

Oyeyemi said that the chairman had reported that one of the community members informed him that the suspect had unlawful carnal knowledge of the boy, who died in the process.

The PPRO added that upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer, Ogijo division, Enatufe Omoh, quickly detailed his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to engaging in homosexuality and that while he was having sex with the deceased boy, he died.

“He confessed further that he quickly dug a shallow grave in a nearby bush, where he hurriedly buried the boy.

“He has also taken policemen to where the deceased was buried,” Oyeyemi said.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution. (NAN)
