Temitope Alo, Serial Rapists Apprehended After Molesting 8 Children

Police in Ipaja-Ayobo area of Lagos State have arrested a man who allegedly defiled  eight children. He is now being detained, awaiting arraignment in court.

The suspect, Mr. Temitope Alo was arrested on Saturday [Sep 15] at Koloba area of Ayobo after the children allegedly confessed that he had molestd them.

The eight victims, whose ages range from 8 to 15 years were brought to the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, WAPA yesterday [Sep 17] by the Vice Chairman, Ipaja-Ayobo Local Council Development  Area, LCDA, Alhaja Falilat Ajijola to enable the state government to take over the case.

The alleged rapist said he works for a newspaper company (name withheld) in Lagos and lured the children to his apartment where he defiled them and threatened to kill them if they reported the matter.

Tests conducted on the eight children at the Ayobo-Ipaja Primary Health Centre, PHC, showed that the children had been defiled.

A top official of the WAPA Ministry told PMNews that the ministry had been handling molest cases but they had never recorded a case where a man serially molestd eight children.

According to the Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA Vice Chairman, Ajijola, last week a case of molest was reported to the Neighbourhood Watch office at the council but when enquiries were made, the traditional ruler of Koloba was said to have denied that such a thing happened in his area.

She said a few days later, the former council chairman of Ayobo-Ipaja, Bisi Yusuf reported that the incident actually happened and that further investigation traced the molest case to the culprit, who was promptly arrested.

Ajijola added that the traditional ruler, Chief Babayanju, later opened up and admitted that the story was true, while eight children came forward to report that they were allegedly molestd by Alo.

Acting Director, Child Development, WAPA Ministry, Mrs Mosunmola Dada said the issue was disgusting, adding  that such a man must be a paedophile and vowed that the government would ensure that he was prosecuted.

“We have evidences against him. The Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA has a medical report on this case. We will monitor and follow up this case,” she said.

The suspect, in his statement at the Ayobo Police Station, was said to have admitted that he molestd some children, but that he only molestd four and not eight.

PMNews could not get to him as he was in custody of the police, while the Divisional Police Officer, DPO of the station was not around for comments.
