A 65-year-old landlord identified as Samuel Adekoya, has been apprehended by the police for alleged child molestation of his tenant’s twin children in Ogun.
The suspect was apprehended by the police after the mother of the twins, Gbenisola Olishe lodged a complaint at the Ijebu-Ode Police Area Command.
The mother alleged that while she was away on business she was called by a good Samaritan informing her that her landlord had tied her twin sons Taiwo Enoch Olishe and Kehinde Emmanuel Olishe hands and legs like goats, while dragging them on the ground with the rope after he had beaten them with cable wire.
The Ogun State police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said that the suspect had made a video recording while carrying out his dire act.
Oyeyemi quoted the mother as stating that “the twins sustained varying degrees of body injuries as a result of the wicked act meted on them by the landlord.”
When interrogated on the reason for his actions the landlord said that he was informed that one of the twins excreted within the compound.
The police image maker explained that when the landlord was asked to take policemen to where the excreta was, “he said the boy has already washed it.”
“One of the twins is currently on admission at Ijebu Ode General Hospital due to injury he sustained while he was being dragged on the ground by the suspect.”
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole has ordered that the case be thoroughly investigated and that the suspect must be arraigned in court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
