An elderly woman, Iyabode Olatunji, has cried out for justice after a 43-year-old man allegedly raped her 13-year-old granddaughter, Rodiyah, in their apartment located along Agbowo express in Ibadan, Oyo state.
Twitter user @AlaOluwaseun who shared the story online, said he met the old lady inside a cab crying profusely. He took her to a corner where he made a video of her narrating what had happened.
In the video, Madam Olatunji who spoke in Yoruba, said her granddaughter goes about selling kerosine.
She said each time her granddaughter goes to sell Kerosine to the accused man, he would ask her to go into his apartment to help him bring something. When there, the accused would lure the granddaughter with N100 and then forcefully rape her.
LIB was able to speak with Madam Olatunji who confirmed the incident. She said her son, Sakiru fought with the suspect when he caught him defiling his niece.
Madam Olatunji told LIB that Sakiru and the suspect were arrested but according to her, the police tortured her son at the Iyanguku police station. She told LIB that the police this afternoon, May 14, granted Sakiru bail but she is however not aware if the suspect has been granted bail.
LIB reached out to the state police command spokesperson, SP Fadeyi Olugbenga, to comment on the incident. He said he is not aware of the case but will revert when he gets all the facts about the said case.
