Homosexual arrested for sodomising, killing five-year-old in Ogun


A  36-year-old  suspected homosexual, Sikiru Ajibola,  has been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for allegedly raping a five- year-old boy to death in the Ogijo area of Ogun State.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Ogijo divisional headquarters by the chairman of  community development association, Olorunwa Arogbeja.

The PPRO added that the CDA chairman  reported that one of the community members informed him that the suspect had unlawful carnal knowledge of a five-year-old boy, consequent upon which the boy died in the process.

He said, “Upon the report, the DPO Ogijo division, CSP Enatufe Omoh, quickly detailed his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the arrested suspect confessed to being an homosexual  and that while he was having sex with the deceased boy, the boy gave up the ghost.

“He confessed further that he quickly dug a shallow grave in a nearby bush, where he hurriedly buried the boy.

“He has also taken policemen to where the deceased was buried.”

The PPRO said the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the homicide section of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
