A young boy was sodomized after his mother sent him to a bar to visit his uncle, according to police in Nigeria.

Lagos police said that they have arrested 25-year-old Wale Ayo, after being accused of raping the 10-year-old boy in the back room of the bar.

Ayo has been charged with one count of rape. He was booked into jail, and his bail has been set at $3,200.

According to the police investigation, the victim’s uncle came to town for a brief visit.

On Friday at around 12:00 p.m., the mother of the 10-year-old boy sent him to the bar located at Jakande Estate, to visit his uncle.

When the boy arrived, Ayo, who works as the bartender, told the child that his uncle was in the back room. The boy followed the bartender into the back room.

Ayo then locked the door and raped the child. When the child got home, the mother noticed that the boy was having difficulty walking.

When she asked her child what happened, the boy told her that he was raped by the bartender. Tinubu Chief Magistrate Kikelomo Ayeye criticized the mother for sending her child alone to the bar.
