Tears flowed freely, yesterday, at the sight of a 7-year-old girl crying uncontrollably after allegedly being defiled by her 40-year-old neighbor, amidst fears that he would evade justice.
The incident happened at Precious Seed close, Oworo, Lagos. It was gathered that the suspect identified as Wale, has been doing it for long and the mom of the victim refused to take a decisive action.
However, things were escalated, yesterday, after other neighbors heard the cry of the victim, Esther. Wale was promptly arrested and dragged to the Alonge police station, Oworo. .
The girl was thereafter rushed to the hospital, but the fear now is that the suspect will bribe his way out if the state government doesn’t take up the matter.
