Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Ogun Command, have arrested a 35-year-old musician, Odewale Iseoluwa Akinleye, for allegedly defiling the 16-year-old daughter of his lover.

Akinleye was paraded at the command’s headquarters in Abeokuta on Thursday.

The command’s spokesman, Dyke Ogbonnaya, said the suspect was arrested following a report at the Anti-Human Trafficking Irregular Migration and Gender Unit of the command.

He said, “On Monday, the 4th of December 2023, the Anti- Human Trafficking Irregular Migration and Gender Unit received a matter which was transferred from the Ofada/Mokoliki division of the command, involving one Odewale Iseoluwa Akinleye, male, 35 years (suspect) and a victim (female) of 16 years of age, name withheld.

“We got to know about the matter through the family members of the victim and our men went after the suspect, got hold of him and brought him to our division. Going through the matter deeply, they saw that it was something they couldn’t handle on their own so it was brought to the state’s headquarters. And on investigation, he confessed to the crime and would be charged to court.”

He, however, cautioned parents, particularly mothers, to exercise caution when interacting with men when their female children are within the environment because this could have a negative impact on the kids.

Speaking to newsmen, the suspect who is a musician and drummer, said he had been in a relationship with the victim’s mother before she travelled to Israel in 2017.

He confessed to giving the victim lime after having canal knowledge of her in order to prevent her from getting pregnant.
