The suspect, a school proprietor was arrested by policemen attached to Igbogbo Police Division in Ikorodu.
It was gathered that the proprietor of the school after closing hour urged Agnes (real name withheld) to go into his office and wait.
The old man was alleged to have torn the minor’s pants before raping her.
People living at Eturenren Street were stunned when they gathered at the premises of the Brighter Glory School where the incident took place.
The aunt of the victim who spoke under the condition of anonymity said the victim’s friend and her younger sister were waiting outside after the suspect ordered the victim to go inside his office and wait.
The two colleagues were said to have gone inside the office to check why she was still there but unfortunately they met the proprietor having carnal knowledge of the little girl.
Her aunt said: “Her friends saw what the proprietor was doing to her. They ran out of his office and left the victim who was said to be bleeding profusely from her private part. They raised the alarm. That was how we all went to the school, unfortunately the victim was still in the pool of her blood when will got to the proprietor’s office.
“We took her to a private hospital where it was confirmed she was defiled and some semen which was brought out from her private part was shown to us.”
A resident, Mama Ifeoma said it was not the first time the man was doing that to minors.
Mama Ifeoma said: “Probably that man was cursed. He is becoming unbecoming to minors. Similar incident occurred in the school, as the owner of the school was said to have been fond of inserting his finger into the private parts of the kids.”
“That little girl was supposed to be the age of his granddaughter. It was after the incident that I got to know that the victim was not the only kid he had raped.
