ONDO – A 31-year-old officer with the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has been relieved of his duties by the authorities of the agency for defiling the 9-year-old daughter of his fellow officer.
This was announced on Thursday February 20th 2014 by the Ondo Police image maker, Wole Ogodo. The suspect, Emmanuel Ilori, will furthermore be charged to court soon.
The incident reportedly happened at Omitogun Estate Shebi, area of Akure metropolis, when Ilori went to visit his co worker in his residence.
It was gathered that Ilori visited Oguntayo Oluwafemi on the said day and after discussing some personal issues, the father of the victim decided to excuse himself to buy something in the neighbourhood with which to entertain his guest.
However, immediately Oguntayo left the house, the suspect bolted the door and pounced on the innocent daughter.
Luck, however, ran out on him as the father of the victim discovered that he had no money on him and decided to rush back to the house. But he met his door firmly locked from behind.
He reportedly knocked severally and all he could hear from the room was the screaming by his daughter.
Oguntayo forced the door open only to meet his colleague defiling his daughter following which he raised an alarm. Attempt by the suspect to escape was thwarted as neighbours arrested and took him to the Okuta Elerinla police station.
Speaking, Ogodo confirmed that the suspect and the father of the victim were employees of the FRSC in the state and that the father of the victim caught his friend in the act while he was defiling his daughter whom he left in the house with him.
According to the police spokesman, the father of the victim had to break open the door of the house he left not more than five minutes before.
The Ondo Police Head of Operations, Sunday Ajayi, reportedly stated that the action of the officer was an embarrassment that should not be treated with levity.
