Kelvin Abugu, a 35-year-old farmer from Uso, Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State, has been arrested for allegedly defiling his neighbor’s 9-year-old daughter.
Bolaji Salami, the state Commissioner of Police, confirmed the event on Wednesday, June 2. He claimed the victim’s mother reported the incident to the police when she discovered her bleeding from her private part.
Agnes Emmanuel stated to the police on May 2, 2021, at 14:20 hrs, that she witnessed her daughter passing blood from her private part, and when questioned who it was, she stated it was one Kelvin Abugu who inserted his hand and afterward his penis into her private part.
The CP claimed, “He was quickly apprehended and confessed to the crime, and the case is ready for prosecution.”
During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime and blamed it on the devil. According to him, he enticed the young girl into his room under the guise of watching TV with him and shut the door behind her as soon as she entered.
Abugu, who stated that he had no partner or relationship, explained that he was unable to penetrate the female and had to violate her with his finger before penetrating her.
“I’m not sure what came over me, but I rushed on the small child and violated her before I realized what was going on,” he explained.
