Man Rapes Neighbour’s 9-Year Old Daughter

The police at Ilasamaja division on Monday, arrested a factory worker, Victor Nkoli for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his neighbour’s 9-year old daughter two months after his wedding with his wife in Lagos State, western Nigeria.
The incident happened at Gbadamosi Street, Ilasamaja, Lagos where the suspect and the parent of the victim reside.
Doctor’s report obtained at General Hospital, Isolo, confirmed that the little girl was defiled and had infection that has been causing her itches in her private part.
The police source confirmed that the doctor’s report confirmed that the victim was infected with a disease called staphylococus.
The victim alleged that Nkoli, who hails from Isiala Ngwa in Abia State, had defiled her on several occasions whenever her mother left her at home and went to work.
Trouble started for Nkoli when the victim’s teacher observed she was not concentrating in the class and was always busy scratching her private part and was not walking properly in school.
This prompted the teacher to ask her what happened to her and she revealed that Nkoli has been having sex with her and told her not to tell anyone.
She also said after the sex in his one-room apartment, he would give her N50 to buy biscuits and sweets.
The school management contacted her mother and informed her their observation and what the victim said.
Consequently, the mother reported the matter to the police and Nkoli was arrested.
While the victim was referred to the General Hospital at Isolo, the hospital’s medical report  confirmed the defilement and infection.
When P.M.NEWS contacted Nkoli, he denied the allegation and said he only  assisted the victim whenever her mother went to work.
He said the mother separated from her husband who returned to his home town in Akwa Ibom State and since then, the victim has been living with her mother alone.
“I just married and wedded two months ago and I have been living peacefully with my wife before this incident,” he said.
He said he was shocked when the girl told the police that he had sex with her, but could not explain why she singled him out among those living in the compound.
Nkoli was charged before Ilasamaja Magistrate’s court on Monday for the alleged rape. However, he was returned back to the police cell at Ilasamaja Division because the court did not sit after he was referred to a family court.
Police sources confirmed that he will be arraigned at the family court at Ikeja, on Tuesday because of the age of the victim.
