The CP, who paraded the suspect, said the mother of the victim informed the command of the incident, adding that the outcome of the investigation conducted revealed that the suspect took the victim into his room and sexually abused her.
He added that the victim, who was irritated by the suspect’s action, upon interrogation by her mother, identified Abdullahi as the rapist.
Imohimi said, “The Gender Unit is also investigating another case of defilement that occurred in the Ikorodu area of the state and reported by one Mrs Obinna, 37, of Selewu, Ikorodu on behalf of her six-year-old daughter against one Habib Abdullahi, 64, a carpenter of the same address as the complainant.
“During interrogation, it was revealed that onMonday, December 3, 2018, around 10am, the suspect took the victim into his room and inserted his fingers in her private parts.
