has been arrested by the police in
Ogun State for allegedly raping his
tenant's 6 year old daughter.
The landlord committed the crime on Thursday.
The Ogun police spokesperson,

mother reported to the police after
the victim complained of pains in her private part.
“The mother asked the little baby some questions which gave a clue that the landlord was responsible,” he said.

arrested by the police.
“Initially he denied the allegation but later confessed to the crime. “He said that he has been having unlawful carnal knowledge of the girl for at least a month. And medical report confirmed that the girl has been raped.”
The spokesperson said the Assistant
Inspector General of Police in the
zone, Abdulmajid Ali, has directed
