35-year-old man, Kareem Mandoju, has been arrested by the police in Saki, Oyo State, for allegedly raping two minors, aged five and six years.

Mandoju allegedly committed the offence around 10am last week Sunday.

The victims’ mother discovered that they were bleeding when she wanted to bathe them around noon.

She asked them what happened and they told her their neighbour, Mandoju, had carnal knowledge of them.

The suspect allegedly dragged the minors into his apartment and raped them.

The victims’ mother reported the incident to the police and the suspect was arrested.

The children were taken to the General Hospital, Saki, where the rape was confirmed.

Police spokeswoman Olabisi Ilobanafor confirmed the incident.

She said: “The suspect has been arrested. He is currently with us. He will soon be arraigned. We have overwhelming evidence against him.”

A tailor in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, Suleiman Jelili (27), has been arraigned before a Magistrate’s Court for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl.

A Jelili allegedly committed the offence at Opele Compound, off Sabo Road. He was apprehended by members of a vigilance group and handed over to the police at Oke Baale station.

Jelili was arraigned on a three-count charge of rape, threat to life and molestation.

He pleaded not guilty.

Police prosecutor Solomon Oladele said the accused did not only rape the teenager but also threatened to kill her and one Owolabi Kabira with a cutlass and a bottle.

He said Jelili entered the victim’s room through the ceiling and forcibly had carnal knowledge of her.

Defence counsel Okobie Najite urged the court to grant his client bail.

Magistrate Mohammed Lasisi granted Jelili N100,000 bail with two sureties, but the accused could not meet the bail conditions.
