A 400-level Botony undergraduate of the Lagos State University (LASU) has been arrested by the police in Lagos this morning for kissing a three-year-old step sister which he posted on social media.
Adeyeye Oluwatosin, 23 years old of Kajola Street, Shagamu, Ogun State said he actually kissed his step sister but he was only playing with her in the presence of his siblings.
Appealing to the public for offending their sensibility with the video, Oluwatosin explained that he had no bad intention but was just playing with the little girl.
He added that as soon as he posted it on her WhatsApp profile than a lady accused him of being a rapist but didn’t know that she had copied the video and reposted it somewhere.
However, the Lagos State Police spokesperson, DSP Elkana Bala explained on Friday that the attention of the force was drawn to the video of the incident which happened on the 2nd June, 2020 in their residence at Shagamu.
As a result, the Commissioner of Police Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu mandated the detectives from the Gender Unit to analyse the video and apprehend the suspect.
Fortunately, DSP Bala added that they had a breakthrough today, 5th June, 2020 and got the suspect arrested about 1100 hours.
He further revealed that Oluwatosin has been handed over to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba for diligent prosecution in Court.
CP Odumosu, therefore, expressed gratitude to Nigerians who helped in bringing the incident to the notice of the Police and urged everyone to continue to speak out against sexual and gender based violence. Together we can stop rape, stop child abuse and crime against our women and children.
Also, he implored Nigerians to always call the following numbers for complaints on rape, child abuse or domestic violence: 08175899289, 09062887858, 09062887856, 09062887849, 09062887841, 09062887870, 08023532283, 09062887864, 09062887861 and 09062887860.
