A police sergeant was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly raping his neighbor’s 9-year-old daughter, police in Nigeria said.
Edo State police said that they have arrested Officer Umoru Babalola, after a mother caught him raping her 9-year-old daughter.
According to the police investigation, Babalola lured the girl to his apartment by asking her to buy him a phone card.
When the mother of the victim came home and did not find her daughter, she asked her neighbors about the whereabouts of her child and she was told that she went to the home of the police sergeant.
The mother, who was not identified, went to the officer’s home to look for her child.
When she knocked on the door and no one answered, the mother looked in through a window and saw Babalola naked and her daughter crying.
She started screaming and banging on the door. Neighbors who heard the mother, came over and forced the door open. The mother took her daughter to a hospital, where it was confirmed that she was raped.
