Lateef Gbolahan, A 32-year-old married man and father of one, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly impregnating a 13-year-old girl, whose name was given as Esther.
Mr. Gbolahan was arrested by police detectives attached to Oke-Odo Police Station after the parents of the girl, who are Gbolahan’s neighbours, reported that he had been sleeping with her and got her pregnant.
The police said that the girl is two months pregnant, and she confessed that ‘Uncle’ Gbolahan had sex with her on since 2012 when she was 10 years old, On each occasion, the randy Gbolahan threatened to kill her is she told anyone what transpired between them.
The little girl was scared of what Gbolahan would do to her and as such, refused to tell anyone what he was doing to her until people around started to notice the swelling belly and the constant vomiting.
The suspect, according to the police, has accepted responsibility for his actions, though he pushed the blame, as usual, to the devil.
“it is the work of the devil. i used to send the girl on errand and when you see her. she looks like a grown woman. her breast is very big but inside bra it will look small, she used it to confuse me, Esther is not a small girl, she know more thing about sex than i do. she used her mouth to tell me to close the door the first day when i send her to buy plantain. she was already doing it with other people before me. her hole was very big when i go first time. she has confessed to me before that Bamidele ( Another Tenant) is her boyfriend. police should arrest Bamidele. it is not my baby. i do only three times. Officer, i am sorry, it is the devil. if you release me i will marry her. please”

He said he slept with her only three times. Now the girl is two months pregnant. The police has transferred the case to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti.
