A certain Prince Ovivare, who
allegedly defiled a neighbour’s four-year-old son (names withheld), is
being investigated by officers at the
Aguda Divisional Police Station,
It was learned that the incident took
place, Wednesday afternoon, when
the boy returned from school. He
emerged from the neighbour’s
room, when his mother called him,
only to reveal that the suspect “put his wee wee inside my bum bum.”
According to the victim’s mother,
“normally, my son stays in the Headteacher’s house after school, when I am not through with my work. So when we came home, I gave him food and bathed him.
After sometime he said ‘mummy I want to go outside and play’.Since I was still busy with cleaning, I allowed him.
“After sometime, when I did not hear his voice, I came outside and shouted his name. He ran out from a
neighbour’s room. I asked him what he was doing there. He said Brother Prince was kissing him and put his wee wee inside his bum bum. I checked my son and he had
some bruises on his buttocks. I rushed to Aguda Police Station. They took my statement, asked my son
questions and he kept repeating the same thing.
Then police referred me to Mirabel Centre at Ikeja Teaching Hospital. The next morning, I took my
son to Ikeja and the doctors
did some tests. After examining him, they confirmed he was indeed
assaulted. At the hospital, they gave me some drugs and said they should make sure that the suspect is arrested. I went back to the station and came with police to arrest
“I want relevant agencies to come to my help for justice. I need justice for this wickedness done to my child. My son is traumatised. He told
me the suspect said he would kill him (my son) if he told me.
I have not been able to sleep for days now. I cannot even eat. How could this human being be this wicked?”
Vanguard gathered that the victim
and his mother live alone as his
father is not in the country. Confirming the incident, Lagos State
Police Command spokesperson, SP
Dolapo Badmos, said the case was
reported and that the boy was taken to Mirabel Centre by the mother and the IPO. She said the suspect, Prince Ovivare, is in custody as police are awaiting the result of the test from Mirabel Centre.
Meanwhile, the case will be transferred to the command’s
gender desk today.
