A middle aged man in Oyo has been arrested after a teenage girl claimed that he had raped her in his home.
48-year-old Owolabi Fola however denied the allegation of rape and said that he had only used his finger on the 13-year-old girl.
The suspect is also said to have blamed his actions on two bottles of stout which he drank before going home and which made him ‘tipsy’.
The Tribune reports:
The girl was said to have run to a woman to complain that Mr. Fola had sexual intercourse with her while she was sleeping in the sitting room. However, the suspect denied having sex with the girl, saying that he only inserted his finger into her private part to derive sexual pleasure.
Mr Fola told Crime Reports that he resorted to using his finger, even with his lady friends, when he could no longer achieve erection due to an accident he had some years ago. He also said further that that would be his first time of playing with an underage girl.
The man who said he was separated from his wife who left some years ago after she complained that he was behaving queerly, disclosed: “It is true I fingered the young teenager but that had been the only way I relieve myself of sexual tension whenever I feel moved to have sex. I had been doing it with my female lovers since my wife left me and I could no longer achieve erection.
“On the day the incident happened, I stopped at a bar and took two bottles of stout which made me tipsy. I got home and met the girl sleeping in the sitting room. She wore a blouse but the wrapper she tied was loose and her private part was exposed. She was not wearing any pants. I became moved by the sight and inserted my finger into her vulva while under alcoholic influence.
The suspect said he had never done such a thing to a minor before, describing what happened as the work of the devil while he was under the influence of alcohol.
Confirming the story, the state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Indabawa, said that more girls had been recovered from the suspect and that he would be charged to court after the completion of investigation.
