A 50-year-old welder was caught inserting his finger inside the private part of a minor inside a garden at the Ikorodu campus of Lagos State Polytechnic on Saturday, August 18, 2019.
The man simply identified as Dede confessed to our correspondent and pleaded forgiveness, saying he was only playing with the girl.
Our correspondent said he walked in on the man and the little girl when the abominable act was going on.
Dede, who claimed to be a friend of the girl’s father, is a welder at the Ikorodu campus of LASPOTECH while the girl’s mother is a trader on the campus.
It was gathered that the man and the girl’s parents are residents of the polytechnic staff quarters.
Further interrogation reveals that it was not the first time Dede would be abusing the girl who also seems to be used to it.
WuzupNigeria’s reporter who filmed the paedophile while interrogating him said:
“I was walking down on campus when I saw the girl sitting on the lap of someone. I didn’t know the person sitting was a man, I had thought they were just two children playing inside the love garden.
“I almost ignored them when I saw the girl stand up and rolled up her short gown, she thereafter sat on the lap of the man. I was enraged as I rushed to the scene which prompted the girl to quickly stand up from the man’s laps.
“The man who initially denied doing anything inimical with the girl said he was only playing with her, when further interrogated and threatened, he confessed and started prostrating begging me to forgive and not expose him.
“I made attempts to find the girl’s mother to report the case to her, but I only saw the girl’s elder brother and younger sister.”
All efforts to reach the girl’s parents proved abortive as her brother claimed the mother was away but promised to call as soon as she arrives.
When our correspondent checked back at their stall before leaving the Polytechnic campus, the mother of the girl was not available.
