Police arrest family friend who allegedly sedated and r.a.p.e.d 14-year-old girl

Detectives from Bariga Police Station said they have arrested a man who allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl after he had laced her food with Indian hemp that made the girl become unconscious.

The suspect, Innocent Ifunayachi, 34, allegedly defiled the 14-year-old-girl in her family house.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Lagos State Command Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, on Sunday.

Elkana said, “The suspect, being a friend to the family, visited and found the girl eating noodles.

“While she left to get him some drinks, he quickly poured some quantity of dry leaves suspected to be Indian hemp in her food.

“She lost consciousness after eating the food and he took advantage of that to rape her,” he said.

Elkana said that detectives from the Family Support Unit have arrested the suspect who had also confessed to the crime.

“The victim has been taken to hospital for medical treatment and forensic examination.

“The suspect will be charged to court,” he said.

The Command said it had also arrested one Emmanuel Olatunde (aka “Pastor”), an alleged “notorious cultist.”

According to the Police, the suspect was arrested in connection with some robbery and murder cases within Bariga Local Government Area.

Elkana said that Olatunde, 31, of No. 27, Oremenunu Ibafo Street, Bariga, is “an ex-convict and a member of the Eiye Confraternity responsible for terrorising people of Bariga.”

“He is responsible for the murder of one Ahmed Karowi, an Aiye Confraternity Kingpin on September 11, 2019.

“Investigation is ongoing and the suspect will soon be charged to court,” he said.
