A 37-year-old man has admitted to molesting a 13-year-old girl whose name has been withheld for legal reasons.
Kehinde Fasusi, a married man and a father of two girls was arrested by police officers from the Owutu police station, Ikorodu last week Thursday after a report was lodged at the station by the victim’s mother.
The Police spokes person, Frank Mba while parading the suspect at the Oduduwa police station, said the police will prosecute the suspect to serve as a deterrent to men who take pleasure in abusing under age girls.
“It was the girl’s mother that reported the case to the police after she discovered that the girl was having pains in her abdomen. Her mother questioned her and that was when she confessed that the suspect has been sleeping with her. She told her mother that the man has slept with her more than three times.
It is very worrisome that a married man with children will still defile a -13 year old girl. We will prosecute him to serve as deterrent to men like him. Parents should take it as their responsibility to advise and monitor their girls so that they will not fall into the hands of bad men.”
Mr. Fasusi, a tailor said he always slept with the victim in his tailoring shop at number 91 Lagos Road Ikorodu.
“I have known the girl for quite some time. I always see her going on errands, so that was when I started liking her. One day in early October, she was passing through my shop on an errand for her mother. I called her and told her that I liked her. I then lured her into my shop and slept with her. She did not cry.
“I do not think that I was the first person that slept with her because she was not a virgin. After I finished sleeping with her the first day, I gave her N200, and told her not to tell anybody.
“After that first day, she came again like two times, I slept with her but I did not give her any money.
Mr. Fasusi said he regretted his action.
“I regret sleeping with her. I feel bad because I know that what I have done is wrong. I will advice my children to stay away from men like me”.
Mr. Mba said the suspect will be charged to court for rape, and unlawful assault.
