Man Arrested For Raping 14-Year-Old Female Hawker

The Ogun State Police Command has arrested Akinyode Rasaq, who is suspected of defiling a 14-year-old hawker (name withheld) in Abeokuta’s Bode Olude neighbourhood.

The incident occurred around 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 5, 2024, when the teenage girl left the house to sell Moi Moi.

It was reported that the perpetrator approached the young hawker, pretending to be interested in purchasing Moi Moi.

According to Punch, the suspect refused to pay her (the teenage girl) after purchasing the food item for N1000, stating that he would do so when he completed eating.

“She left home to hawk. The suspect was believed to have chased her and persuaded her to sell the steamed bean cake to him,” a divisional police source told the publication

“He said she had to wait for him to finish the steamed bean cake before he would pay the money. She said she was there for many hours, but the man refused to pay her. She didn’t even realise how much time had passed while she waited there, hoping the suspect would pay the money.

“Then, at about 1 p.m. on the same day, the suspect suddenly dragged the girl to his apartment in Bode Olude and had carnal knowledge of her before freeing her.”

It was also discovered that an elderly woman who resided on the street, known as Nurat, confirmed the teenage hawker’s description of the occurrence to police officers who arrived at the crime scene.

Omolola Odutola, spokesperson for the State Police Command, verified the occurrence and stated that the suspect had been caught and held.

“The minor was hawking when the suspect approached her, pretending to buy what she was selling, unknown to the girl that he had a clandestine and evil plan. He forcefully dragged her into his room and defiled the teenage girl. Our men at the Bode Olude Police Division visited the crime scene,” she stated.

“A medical test was conducted on the teenage girl, and the result showed that there was forceful penetration. The case will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
