The Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police says it has arrested a 64-year-old man, Ayotunde Taiwo, for defiling a two-year-old girl (name withheld).

The suspect was arrested following a complaint lodged at the Agbado divisional headquarters by the mother of the victim.

She reported that at about 11 am of Tuesday 7th of September 2021, she noticed that her daughter could not walk well, and when she inspected her body, she saw traces of blood in her private part.
