How police corporal raped a 12 year-old- girl
Olalekan Lasisi, a-32 year police corporal attached to Ekiti State Police Command, has landed in â€˜hot soupâ€™ and risked losing his police certificate because he could not control his libido. Nigeria Standard learnt his lust for minor, especially under-age girls while on patrol has brought a lot of shame to the police.
Investigation by Nigeria Standard in Ado Ekiti revealed that Lasisi, by his action abused his privilege as a law enforcement officer when he allegedly raped and impregnates a 12-year-old pupil, Kemi Olawale (real names withheld). Olawale, a virgin and orphan raped twice by Lasisi around November last year is now six months pregnant.
Ambushed by Lasisi from school
Investigation by Nigeria Standard showed that this alleged â€˜serial rapistâ€™ sighted Olawale while being sent on errand in Basiri area of Ado Ekiti. Eye witness account had it that Lasisi looked everywhere to ensure no one sighted him. Immediately, he dragged her inside a bush and had several rounds of sex with the JSS 1 girl. He allegedly gagged her mouth in order not to attract attention of passers-by.
Victim stopped schooling
Few weeks after the incidence, the girl stopped schooling and was afraid to tell Mrs. Juliana Olajiga, her guardian for fear of being reprimanded. Moreso, Olajiga was said by neighbours to have traveled at a time the incidence occurred. Olajiga reportedly claimed that sometime ago she became sick and her children took her away from Ado Ekiti for proper medication.
Olajiga claimed that on her return by April, she noticed some changes in the body of Olawale. She confronted her that she may be pregnant, but the minor denied. To put her mind in rest, she took the â€˜victimâ€™ to a near-by laboratory for a clinical test. There, it was discovered that Olawale was already six month pregnant.
Olajiga wounded by Lasisi
When Olajiga invited Lasisi whose eyes were â€˜redâ€™, body stank of â€˜alcoholâ€™ to her house and confronted him on the damage done to the future of the JSS 1 pupil, he flared up, injured her, after dealing her several blows and slaps.
Women group rise in defence of rape victim
In view of the increasing rape incidence in the country, a non-governmental group (NGO) in Ado Ekiti, coordinated by Mrs. Rita Ilevbare petitioned Olayinka Balogun, Ekiti State Commissioner of Police (CP) and demanded that Lasisi be arrested for allegedly raping a minor after Olajiga had sought reliefs from the group.
In his response, Balogun, the police boss in Ekiti reportedly confirmed the receipt of the petition and said the suspect (Lasisi) had been arrested on the strength of the petition, adding that a senior police officer had been directed as an Investigating Police Officer (IPO) to handle the case.
