Lagos - A trader at Alaba International Market, Ojo, Lagos, simply identified as Joseph, a.k.a Pastor has been arrested for allegedly raping his neighbour’s seven-year-old granddaughter (names withheld) at Mechanic Bus Stop, Ojo, Lagos, Vanguard reports.
The victim was allegedly raped twice by the suspect after the victim’s mother, Nene Oguchint, alongside her three children visited her sick father who lives in the same compound with the suspect at Number 19, Adeyanju (Civilian Barracks) three weeks ago.
The suspect who is accused to be a serial rapist was alleged to have also defiled his 12-year-old brother, Collins before the incident.

The victim (names with held) told her bewildered mother that the first time pastor did it was the day she, together with her younger ones, went inside the Pastor’s room. “When we entered, he told my little sister Amaka to take my brother, Victor outside. When they went outside, Uncle asked me to sit on his laps, removed my pants and his trouser and started putting his private part inside my bum-bum. Later, white substance began to come out from it. After he finished, he gave her N10,00.
The second time was in the afternoon; I was in the passage alone, so Uncle Joseph started calling me, in a low voice, to come in. I thought he wanted me to run some errand for him. So, I went inside his room and he did the same thing to me. After he finished, he gave me two sliced bread. Asked why she didn’t tell her mother, she said that Uncle threatened that he will kill her if she told anyone.
