Samuel Maikasuw, a 20-year-old security guard, has been arrested by agents from the Ikorodu division of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly sexually assaulting and impregnating the adolescent daughter of his employer.
According to the Advocates for Children and Vulnerable Peoples Network, a civil society organization that is familiar with the case, Maikasuw is accused of impregnating the 15-year-old daughter of his employer.
The accused worked as a gatekeeper at the residence of one Fadiji, who was a “surrogate parent” to the 15-year-old victim.
According to reports, Maikasuw was caught in a sexually inappropriate situation with the kid the last year and was given a warning not to do it again.
The ACVPN said, “The perpetrator who defiled and impregnated a 15 years old girl is Samuel Maikasuw 20yr old. He hails from Abaji in the FCT.
“He was a security man at Ms. Fadiji’s house. He was once caught with the minor last year and was severely warned never to come near the little girl again and he apologised.
“He was later transferred to the shop of the landlord’s wife who later converted him to a sales boy. He was arrested by the vigilantes and policemen in the Ikorodu area after the act. The suspect has been detained at Ikorodu division, Igbogbo.”
Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesman for the Lagos State Police, verified the arrest when SaharaReporters called him and noted that the offense was “defilement of a minor,” which is illegal.
He said, “It is confirmed. It is not just as simple as saying he impregnated someone. Under the law, it is defilement. He defiled a minor. The issue is still being investigated.”
