Samuel Darisa, a 65-year-old widower, has been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Kwara State Command for allegedly defiling a 10-year-old child.
The suspect committed the act at Agba dam district, GRA, of the capital, where he served as a security guard, according to the command’s spokesperson, Babawale Afolabi, who disclosed this while briefing newsmen at the NSCDC headquarters in Ilorin on Friday, March 26.
According to Babawale, the suspects were apprehended following a tip from a concerned neighbor who reportedly caught them in the act.
He stated that the defendant admitted to the crime and that the minor gave his consent to the act.
“He however stated that the minor consented to the affair since it was not only one time he had carnal knowledge of the minor,” Babawale said.
The spokesman said the suspect would be charged after the completion of investigation.
