A 65-year-old guard arrested for alleged abduction and sexual assault of two minors

Oluwole Akinola, a 65-year-old guard, was detained in Ilorin by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) after reportedly abducting two youngsters and sexually assaulting them for days.

The Gender–based Violence Unit of the Corps is currently interviewing the suspect, while the two victims are also assisting in the inquiry, according to Babawale Zaid Afolabi, a spokesman for the NSCDC in the state.

The father of one of the victims, Borokini Oluwaseun, 32, of Aduralere Street, Ilorin, claimed to the NSCDC office that his 12-year-old daughter, Semilore, who had been missing for several days, had been located in the custody of one Akinola Oluwole, 65, of Shao garage.

The spokesman revealed further that the timely arrival of the NSCDC operatives saved the suspect from mob action as the people of the neighbourhood insisted that it was not the first time Oluwole would be accused of rape and sexual molestation of minors.

In his preliminary statement, the suspect, who claimed to have lost his wife 15 years ago, “denied having sexually assaulted the minors adding that the two girls actually approached him to shelter them and he did not sleep with them but harboured them for days.”

The state commandant, Iskil Makinde Iskil Ayinla, has ordered the two minors to undergo further medical examination while the case will be transferred to the Gender- based violence unit of the corps for proper investigation and possible prosecution of the suspect.
