An Islamic teacher identified as Ismaila Saheed, 38, and one Toliha Sabith, 20, has been apprehended by men of the Ogun state police command for allegedly defiling a 15-year-old girl (names withheld).
In a statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi revealed that the two were busted over the weekend by detectives attached to Redeemed Camp Police Station after the victim reported that they raped her on August 25, at Mowe.
However, it was gathered that the victim reported she was first raped by Sabith at Imedu_nla in Mowe and went to report the case to her Islamic teacher who also took advantage of her under the impression of helping her remove an unwanted pregnancy gotten from the first defilement.
“She said she was raped by Sabith and she went to her Islamic and Arabic teacher to tell him about it. Having listened to her ordeal, the Arabic teacher Ismaila Saheed told her that she might have gotten pregnant as a result of the incident and he offered to help her remove the said pregnancy.
“Surprisingly, instead of removing the imaginary pregnancy, he also had carnal knowledge of her, after which he inserted a sharp object into her private part causing her a serious vaginal injury” the statement read
According to the statement, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Bala Yakubu was said to have detailed operatives to go after the culprits who were eventually apprehended on Friday, August 28.
Oyeyemi added that both men have reportedly confided to the crime and would be transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further action.
