Plumber arrested for r@ping daughters

A 42 – year – old plumber , Idowu Lasisi ,
has been arrested by the police in
Lagos State for allegedly raping two of
his daughters .
The victims were said to be a 15 – year –
old Senior Secondary School 1 pupil
and 19 – year – old .

PUNCH Metro gathered that the
children lived with their father in the
Ketu area of the state.
Sometime in 2015 , Lasisi allegedly
raped the elder sister, who fled home
after the incident.
The mother was also said to have
separated with the plumber because of
the incident and relocated , leaving the
pupil and her 10 – year – old sister in
Lasisi ’s care .
Our correspondent learnt that Lasisi ,
who was arrested on Wednesday after
the victim raised the alarm, started
having sex with the pupil last year .
A police source at the Lagos State
Police Command , where the suspect
was transferred to , disclosed that the
victim said Lasisi gave her N 500 each
time he had sex with her .
“ The girl is currently at the Mirabel
Centre for medical tests. She said her
father had had sex with her three
times and that she tried to resist the
harassment . He gave her N 500 each
time he had sex with her .
“ Her mother fled home two years ago
when he raped the girl’s elder sister.
The whereabouts of the other victim
had yet to be known.
“ But the suspect is still denying that he
raped them even though her daughter
insisted he did ,” the source said .
The Lagos State Commissioner of
Police, Fatai Owoseni, on Thursday at
the command ’ s headquarters in Ikeja,
confirmed Lasisi ’ s arrest , adding that
the two cases were being investigated .
He said , “ The suspect was arrested for
defiling his daughters . The elder one
ran away and he continued to serially
molest the younger one. The suspect
will be paraded after the completion
of investigation . ”
Meanwhile, a student of Adeniran
Ogunsanya College of Education,
Ijanikin, Lagos State , Michael Emeka,
has confessed to belonging to Aiye
Confraternity, saying he spent part of
his school fee to mark his initiation
into the group.
Twenty- five – year – old Emeka said apart
from drinks he bought with the school
fee, he also paid N 25 ,000 to cement his
membership of the group.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Emeka , who
had been on the wanted list of the
police, was trailed to a place in
Ijanikin sometime in February 2017 .
He was eventually tracked down on
the premises of the Nigerian Foreign
Service Academy on the Lagos- Badagry
Expressway, while charms and a
locally – made pistol were recovered
from him .
The Imo State indigene told our
correspondent that he got the charms
from the cult leader to fortify himself
against gunshots.
He said , “ I was initiated into the cult
group in 2013 . I joined the group to
avoid being killed .”
Owoseni said the suspect had been
terrorising Ijanikin and its environs,
adding that he would be charged to
court soon.
