Man arrested for allegedly defiling minor inside mosque’s restroom

A 40-year-old man simply identified as Abiola has been arrested for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old minor (name withheld) at the Olorunloba Mosque restroom located on Ondo Road in the Ijebu-Ode area of the state.

Punch reports that the suspect had been a member of the mosque for more than 15 years. Following the completion of the afternoon Muslim prayer in the mosque on March 4,, the accused allegedly took advantage of the victim while she was using the toilet in the mosque. The survivor told the police that she had gone to the mosque’s bathroom to pass a stool. She explained that she heard a knock on the door shortly after she entered the restroom. The survivor further claimed that she was startled when she opened the door and discovered the suspect standing by it, even though she had assumed the knock was from her younger brother, who had also come for the prayer.

She told the police that she was trying to find out why Aro was in the women’s restroom when she surprisingly saw him by the door. He was said to have then allegedly shoved her back into the restroom and forced her up against the wall.

A police report on the incident reads in part

“As a result of what Aro did, the survivor started bleeding uncontrollably from her private parts. She went back home to report the matter to her guardian, who took her to a general hospital in the area for medical attention.”

Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, said

“The suspect has been arrested and detained for alleged defilement. He will be transferred to the State CID in Abeokuta immediately after the preliminary investigation is completed”
