The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Osun State Command, has arrested a 35-year-old bricklayer, Friday Kanu, for raping his 9-year-old sister-in-law in Ilesha.
The suspect later confessed to raping the minor under the influence of alcohol. The victim was living with her sister, Odunola Ajayi, who is married to Friday, at Imadin, Ilesha, when the suspect first raped her.
On Friday, March 18, 2019, the suspect took advantage of his wife’s absence from home, to rape the victim for the second time.
Odunola said she agreed to Friday’s marriage proposal after she lost her mother to stroke in 2016 and became homeless. Adding that her husband started misbehaving after he was involved in an accident in which he sustained head injury.
