Police in Ogun State have arrested a 64-year-old man, Ayotunde Taiwo for allegedly raping a 2-year-old girl (name withheld) at Agbado in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect was arrested following a complaint lodged at Agbado divisional police headquarters by the mother of the victim on Tuesday.

The mother told the police that she had noticed that her daughter could not walk properly and decided to check her body.

In the process, the complainant said she saw blood gushing out of her private part.

She further told the police that upon enquiry, the hapless girl merely pointed to the house in the opposite direction.

The mother said when she got to the house, “the suspect was met washing his blood-stained boxer, indicating that he just had unlawful carnal knowledge of the little girl.”

The Police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi told newsmen on Tuesday that following the report, the Divisional Police Officer at Agbado, Kehinde Kuranga detailed his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested at his house, located at No 11, Efon Alaaye street, Adiyan, Agbado.

He said the victim had been taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Oyeyemi quoted the Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun to have ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to Family Support Unit at Ota Police Area Command for further investigation and prosecution.
