Police officers attached to the Area M police command filed a two-count-charge against the petty trader at the family court 6 for having unlawful carnal knowledge of a 7-year-old and a 5-year-old girl (names withheld).
The charge sheet read that on March 28, at about 4.000pm in the Ifelodun area of Shasha in Lagos, Abubakar, had unlawful carnal knowledge of the 7-year-old in his kiosk, and on the same date and in the same place, he also raped her sister.
According to the prosecution, the accused committed an offence punishable under section 218 of the Criminal Code cap17 volume II laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2003.
Following the arraignment, the accused was conveyed to the Kirikiri prison, where he will be remanded until June 18 when the case will come up for hearing.
Sadly, these are not the only rape cases Abubakar will answer to, as he is also alleged to have raped a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old both of whom he lured to his shop with candy.
Abubakar resides on the same street with the girls’ parents at Shasha.
According to the girls’ mother, Abubakar is a serial rapist and medical reports show that he also raped the girls in his shop on their way back from school sometime in March.
“One day, in March, my neighbour noticed that her daughter came home with sweets and she decided to probe the girl, so that was how she confirmed that Abubakar slept with her children, aged 5 and 7,” she said.
“She ran to tell me that my two girls, aged 3 and 5, were also defiled by Abubakar and I decided to question my girls and they confessed to me that he had sex with them in his shop when they were on their way back from school, then he will use a white handkerchief to clean them up.
“As if this was not enough, this dirty old man will kiss them on their lips and threaten them not to tell anybody. This man is not only a serial rapist, he is also a ritualist and we will ensure that he is jailed for raping babies.
“We know that he is facing charges for raping my neighbour’s daughters but we have also reported him to the police based on the medical reports that he had defiled my daughters, so he is going to face another rape case.”
According to medical resorts conducted on the girls by the Orile- Agege General hospital, it was revealed that the girls’ hymens were broken due to penile penetration.
The report further revealed that the four girls had sexually transmitted diseases known as Cultured Staphylococcus Aureus, which has been treated.
