‘He fiddled with her private part’: Senior NEPC staff ‘rapes 7-year-old girl in Ondo’

by Akintomiwa Agbaje


The incessant occurrence of the rape of young girls seem to have escalated recently, this time in Akure, Ondo state.

The police are currently interrogating Boma Benibo, a 59-year-old top official in the Akure Zonal Office of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, raping a seven-year-old girl.

The victim and the accused reside in the same building at 18, Kola Ogunmola Street, Ijapo Estate, Akure, where the crime was committed.

The Vanguard reports:

It was learnt that the girl (names withheld) used to visit the suspect’s flat often to play.

But the unexpected happened last week when she visited and was there for over two hours which made her mother become suspicious.

On getting to the suspect’s apartment, she discovered her daughter was not her usual self and after a brief interrogation she pointed at her private part.

Further interrogation, according to reports, showed that the suspect had touched her private part.

The father of the girl, Mr  Rotimi Babadipe, immediately reported the matter at the Ijapo police station and the suspect was picked up.

Contacted, the state Police image maker, Wole Ogodo,  confirmed the incident.

Ogodo  said: “The police was going to do a medical test on the girl to ascertain if Benibo actually penetrated her.

“Yes, it is true, but we have a little problem to resolve, because the girl, on interrogation, said the man was fiddling with his private part and did not penetrate her.

“The police is trying to take her to the hospital so that a proper medical examination will be done to determine the fact of the matter.”
