One Abdullahi Garuba, 58, a security man attached to Oshodi Isolo LGA Secretariat, has been apprehended by the Gender Section of Lagos State Police Command for allegedly defiling two minors.

According to Lagos State police spokesman, Chike Oti, “The children were questioned by their respective mothers and they confessed that the suspect had been having anal sex with them. The matter was thereafter reported for investigation at the Gender Section of the Command”.
In a related development case, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Langbasa Police Station, Ada Okafor, a Superintendent of Police, on Saturday, arrested Peter Adida of No.9 Oyetayo Olafisoye Street, Westwood Estate, Badore, Ajah, Lagos, for allegedly defiling his own two-year-old daughter.
