A 70-year-old man, simply identified as Baba Sunday has been arrested by the police for allegedly defiling an eight-year-old girl in Lagos. The old man, who is currently facing interrogation at the Ilaje Police Station, was said to have taken the girl to a popular hotel (name withheld) in Bariga where he defiled the girl.
The suspect was said to have booked the hotel room for N10,000 before luring the girl to the place.

The hotel managers did not suspect foul play when they initially saw the little girl going inside the room with the man, who is old enough to be her great grand parent. The receptionist in the hotel was said to have become worried when she checked the time and later discovered that the time was far spent and there was no mature girl that came with the man.

A staffer of the hotel decided to eaves-drop and allegedly heard the little girl pleading with the old man to let her go as her aunty would be waiting for her.
The hotel manager was said to have contacted the Police, who stormed the place and compelled the man to open the door. The policemen were said to have been shocked when they met the girl, who told them she was eight years old.
A police source at Ilaje Police Station told Daily Sun that the little girl confessed that the old man had been having carnal knowledge of her for a long time .

The police officer said the girl told them the old man had taken her twice to a primary school where he slept with her.
The source said on the day the old man was arrested, he had lied to the girl that he was going to buy some provision, which he wanted the girl to deliver to his family as they live on the same area. The policeman said the girl followed the suspect to the hotel room where he allegedly defiled her.

He said the girl had been taken to the general hospital where doctors conducted some medical test on her and that the police were still waiting for the medical report before proper action would be taken on the man. The little girl’s aunty, who simply identified herself as Ifeoma wants the police to bring the old man to justice. “The girl in question is my late elder sister’s child. The girl is too young and fragile to face the kind of psychological trauma she has been subjected by Baba Sunday.”

She said the only thing that would appease the family is when Baba Sunday would be made to face the law.
When contacted for comment, the state Police spokesperson, Mr Samuel Jinadu said he had not been briefed on the matter by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the station.
