On October 8, a Nigerian father approached the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ejigbo Police Station, CSP Olabisi Okufowobi with deep pain in his heart.

He claimed that while he was busy fending for his family, a 31-year-old Togo national, Dominic Samson, was home having his way with his 15-year-old daughter.

Based on his complaint, the DPO, a female officer with some experience in children and women rights, interrogated the victim and the revelations were nothing short of shocking.

The teenage girl confirmed that the suspect did not only defile her but sodomised her by having anal sexual intercourse with her.

She further revealed that she was not the only victim of the suspect's indecent sexual behaviour. She named five other victims who are within 13 to 15 years age bracket.

All the victims except the sixth have been identified, interrogated and their statements recorded.

The girls revealed that the suspect sometimes brings all of them together in one room for an orgy and thereafter gives them a cash reward of 50 Naira each.

The five victims had been taken to the Mirabel Centre where the doctor's report confirmed that they were indeed defiled as alleged.

Dear parents, the police can only prosecute after a crime has been committed. The need to pay more attention to your children’s activities cannot be overemphasized.

This is the only way to stop the rising cases of sexual exploitation and abuse of children, as the Lagos Commissioner of Police has constantly said.
