The Lagos state police command says it has arrested two sex predators.
Spokesperson for the police in the state Chike Oti said the first case involved one Mukaila Aliu, 40, who took advantage of a 16-year-old physically challenged girl child (deaf and dumb), more than a year ago, precisely on November 10, 2017 and had been on the run ever since.
Mukaila Aliu had on the aforementioned date, at Oshodi, allegedly lured the survivor by pretending he was going to buy Indomie noodles for her hence she unsuspectingly followed him to an abandoned shop along Oshodi road where he defiled her.
Although he was caught in the act, he managed to escape and remained in the hiding until on the 19/11/2018 when he came out of hiding to challenge a property developer at a site in Oshodi, demanding some fees with menaces from the property owner, claiming to be an “Omoonile”.
One of the workers who identified him, sneaked out and alerted the Divisional Police Officer, Makinde Police Station, who promptly arrested him and handed him over to the Gender Section of the Command for further investigation.
The second case involves one Chika Okafor, 39, who lured a 15-year-old girl who ran away from home because her mum threatened to beat her up for losing an important item. He got her into his car and took her to a beer parlour where he convinced her to take some liquor.
Being her first time to indulge in such habit, the little girl was completely knocked out after guzzling alcoholic drinks.
The suspect, seeing the state of of the survivor, took her to a hotel at Oshodi.
The suspect was however arrested on Saturday, November 24, 2018 by detectives attached to the Gender Unit of the Command.
