A 26-year-old man has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for sexually assaulting twin daughters of his employer since 2019.
The suspect, identified as Chinedu Obi confessed during interrogation that he had been sleeping with the girls since 2019.
According to information made available to newsmen by the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, the suspect took advantage of the fact that the mother of the twins usually leaves them with him whenever she’s going out.
Obi has since been remanded in police detention at the Aguda police station after he was arrested on June 16, 2020.
The Lagos State Police Command says that a 26-year-old man, Chinedu Obi, has admitted before a team of interrogators that he had been sleeping with his employer’s 12-year-old twin daughters since 2019.
The case was reported by the mother, who is said to be in her mid-30s at the Aguda police station.
Elkana said; “The suspect was arrested and he confessed to the crime. The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered that the case be transferred to the Gender Unit, State Headquarters, Ikeja, for investigation and prosecution.”
Meanwhile, as earlier reported by Naija News, Elkana also revealed that the Bariga police station, on June 26, 2020 at about 7.50pm, received a report that a 33-year-old man, Chibuike Kalu, of Amodu Street, Bariga, allegedly defiled his 14-year-old daughter (name withheld).
“The survivor was taken to Mirabel Centre, Ikeja, for medical treatment and forensic examination. Kalu was arrested and he confessed to committing the crime. He will be charged to court,” he said.
