I used engine oil to make it easier - Man who defiled 3-year-old girl confesses

The victims mother found her in the suspects house

A witness said: “The suspect and some people were sitting together at the function; all of a sudden, the guy stood up and said he wanted to go and change his clothes at home.

Mother

As he was going, he took the girl along with him; the mother of the victim saw him when he was going. When the mother went back home, she did not see her daughter so she went to Argigidi’s house and found out that the girl had been defiled.

After discovering what happened, she reported to the youths who went to the man’s house to beat him up. He was later taken to the community chairman. He initially denied it but later confessed that he did it.”

Lenient

Ibeji, however, said the youths were not happy with the way the community chairman was handling the case. He noted that Arigidi’s family came to beg the chairman and he had released the suspect to them.

The victim’s mother, Pouma Ologun, said she wanted justice for her daughter, adding that she wanted the community to deal with Arigidi.
