24-year-old Dayo Maker has been arrested by men of the Lagos state police command, for allegedly conspiring with one Kazeem Bello to gang rape and impregnate a 13-year-old girl.
A statement from the Lagos state police command spokesperson, Bala Elkana, says the suspects committed the dastard act in November 2018 in the Bariga area of the state. The victim became pregnant and welcomed a baby girl about five weeks ago.
Dayo was arrested when he attempted to rape the victim’s sister. He had previously threatened to kill the victim and her younger sister and asked them not to report him to anyone. The survivor summoned courage to narrate her ordeal to her family, prompting them to report the matter at the Bariga police station and Dayo was immediately arrested.
The police say investigation is ongoing and efforts are being made to apprehend the second suspect who is currently at large.
