A 39-year-old man, Segun Oni, has been arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old girl in Igbaja community, Kwara State.

Spokesperson of the command, Babawale Afolabi, who disclosed this in a statement said the case was reported at the NSCDC Igbaja Divisional Office on Monday, June 14, 2021, around 6:30 pm by the victim’s grandfather, who reportedly caught the suspect in the act under a mango tree.

Afolabi stated that after a thorough investigation, it was discovered that the victim was suffering from congenital mental deficiency “which has impaired her communication and social skills. Literarily, she hardly talks to people”

The statement said a medical report obtained from a hospital in Ijagbo town showed penetration and bruises in the victim’s private area.

The suspect confessed that on several occasions he lured the young girl with gifts to isolated areas to take advantage of her, Afolabi added.
