Sad:28year Old Man Tears Up A 2year Old Girl Private Part

Physinews Reports: Doctors at the
Lagos State University Teaching Hospital,
LASUTH, Ikeja, are
battling to save the life of a two-
year-old grl, who was raped by a
28-year-old tailor, called Itua, in
Oshodi area of Lagos.
Itua… It’s Devil’s handwork
Mother of the baby, Mrs. Ajibade,
was reportedly going out with
the baby, but left her to urinate
behind their 1, Masako Street
residence, only to return to find
that her daughter had vanished.


The suspect, a tailor whose shop
was located opposite Ajibade’s
home denied seeing the baby,
when asked.

However, the toddler’s mother
told Vanguard: “My baby later
came to me crying, pointing at
her private part and, at the same
time, calling ‘Itua,’ ‘Itua’.

“I checked her private part and
discovered that her pant was
blood-stained. When I asked Itua
what he did to my daughter, he
said nothing. He admitted that
my daughter came to meet him
in his shop, but that he drove her
out to go and meet me.

“At that point, I started shouting
at the top of my voice, until
people gathered. A mob
gathered and apprehended him.”

When Vanguard visited the area
yesterday, the suspect’s shop
was under lock and key. Other
apprentice were said to have fled
for fear of being arrested.

A resident, who simply gave his
name as Matthew, said: “This is
not the first time. He has been
caught several times, but would
beg to be freed. This is the first
time he has been taken to the
police. Policemen from Akinpelu
Division took him away.”

‘I only fingered her’
During interrogation, Itua, an
Esan man, from Edo State Nigeria, said: “I
didn’t put my manhood in her. I
only fingered her. It was the
devil’s handwork.”

The Child Protection Network
Coordinator, Mirabel Centre, at
LASUTH, Mr. Ebenezer Omejalile,
described the incident as the
worst case ever received at the
centre.

He said: “The girl was in a pool of
blood, with her private part very
expanded. It is not easy patching
her up. The girl is still there
receiving treatment.”

Relatives of the suspect appealed
to the family of the baby to
withdraw the case from the
police station, but Vanguard
gathered that the Centre refused,
saying rape was a case against
the government and justice must be done.
