Police in Ondo has arrested a man identified as Dare for raping a 12-year-old girl identified as Zainab Justina Adeyemo to death.
The victim boarded the suspect’s bike, who is a married commercial motorcyclist in Akoko area of the state.
Dare forcefully dragged the deceased into a bush where the suspect raped her to death on Friday July 17, 2020.
On the verge of lynching Dare, he admitted to carrying the girl on his motorcyle.
He said Zainab died as result of the struggle that ensued between them.
Zainab’s mother said;
On getting to the police station, now visibly frightened Dare pleaded that he should be treated gently.
He assured that the missing girl would eventually be seen.
Shockingly, he further claimed that while on his way from Eshe to Irun with Zainab, they had an accident.
He said that the girl seriously wounded.
Initially, we told the police to carry out immediate investigation into his claims but they were insisting that we must wait for the stipulated 24 hours before taking any action.
This infuriated villagers and they went out in search of Zainab without the police.
Luckily, after about five hours’ thorough search, the corpse of Zainab discovered along a footpath in the bush.
We inform the police and they later picked it.
The delay by the police forced both commercial motorcyclists in the area and villagers to stage a protest demanding that Dare must be brought out to say what happened to the little girl.
The protest made the police to accost Dare who started narrating how he raped and later killed the little girl.
He told gory tales of how he was raping her inside the bush only to discover that she was dead.
