The Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have arrested a 33-year-old man, identified as Tunde Kareem for defiling his 11-years-old daughter in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
It was learned that the suspect, who hails from Ede in Osun State committed the act at their residence along Idi Osan Olodo road, Ibadan.
The arrest of the suspect was confirmed in a statement on Monday by the Corps.
Oyindamola Okuneye, Corps PRO said the suspect, during interrogation, admitted to having carnal knowledge of his daughter only once before his arrest on January 17, 2023.
Meanwhile, the command also arrested a 46-year-old suspect who defiled a 10-year-old girl.
The corps’ spokesperson said that the suspect took the victim to a lonely road with his bike in the Alakia area of Ibadan on January 15, where he used his finger to penetrate and defile her.
It was gathered that the suspect frequently visits the girl’s mother’s shop to drink locally made herbs and he used the opportunity to get close to the girl.
Okuneye said the state NSCDC commandant, Michael Adaralewa, pledged that the two suspects would be charged to court at the conclusion of the investigation.
He urged residents to support security agencies with information on the violation of children anywhere in the state.
