The Ondo State Police Command, on Sunday, said it had arrested one Ayomide Emeyinola, also known as Lepa, for allegedly molesting a seven-year-old girl in Ode Irele, in the Irele Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that the 16-year-old suspect allegedly took the minor to an obscure place and inserted her fingers in the victim’s vagina and broke her hymen.
As a result of the act, the victim was said to have bled from the vagina and was later rushed to the hospital.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect had confessed to the crime.
He said the victim initially mentioned one Femi Odofin as being responsible for the crime, but she later named Emeyinola, who was arrested.
Joseph stated, “We can confirm that the suspect has been arrested and she has confessed to have committed the offence. She told us that the victim was rude to her and she wanted to punish her and that was why she took the action. But we think there is more to it.
“The state Commissioner of Police has ordered that the matter be transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department of the command, while investigation is ongoing.”
