As Police operatives from Ejigbo Division led by the DPO, CSP Olabisi Okuwobi, intensify efforts to arrest four men who gang-raped an 11-year old girl, Favour Okechukwu, to death, another man who allegedly raped an 11-year old boy in a popular hotel in Lagos has been arrested.
Authoritative source revealed that one John Ita Ogar has been arrested for allegedly engaging a boy (name withheld) in anal sex in the popular Ambi Hotel located at Pipeline Street in the same Ejigbo, Lagos.
It was gathered that the suspect, Ogar, forcefully penetrated the boy through his anus and injured him in the process before they were caught in the act.
How the boy was lured into the act at the hotel was not known because the Police Public Relations Officer was yet to make an official statement over the dastardly act.
However, some of the residents, who knew what happened, said that it was the mother of the boy that caught them, raised alarm and went to the Police at Ejigbo Division to make a report.
Hence, the suspect, Ogar, was arrested and detained at the Police Station for interrogation over his conduct.
According to some sources, the suspect said he was lured into the act when he was 16 years and he continued in that before he was caught.
The boy, who Ogar allegedly assaulted, has been taken to Mirabel Centre for test and treatment because he was said to have sustained injuries during the forceful penetration.
When our correspondent visited Ejigbo Police Station, the suspect was still detained there while the DPO was said to have gone for routine monitoring of the area.
However, according to Police sources the matter will be transferred to SCIID, Panti, Yaba area of Lagos, for further investigation. If he is found culpable, then he will be charged before the Court for the alleged offence which attracts several years of imprisonment.
