29-Year-Old Man Arrested For Raping 27-Year-Old Down Syndrome Lady
Down syndrome is a genetic condition that causes mild to serious physical and developmental problems.
People with Down syndrome are born with an extra chromosome. Chromosomes are bundles of genes, and the body relies on having just the right number of them. With Down syndrome, this extra chromosome leads to a range of issues that affect a person both mentally and physically.
Abati was arrested on the 7th of December 2022, following the report lodged at Ilese ijebu divisional headquarters by the mother of the victim, who reported that she sent her daughter on an errand at about 7:30 am, but when she returned, she discovered blood stain on her cloth.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Saturday night by the command’s Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
Oyeyemi said the mother of the lady disclosed that when she asked her daughter about the blood on her cloth, she took her to the house of the suspect and explained that the suspect had carnal knowledge of her.
“Upon the report, the DPO Ilese Ijebu, CSP Paul Omiwole, detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was subsequently arrested,” Oyeyemi said.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to committing the crime, adding that he equally capitalised on the health challenge of the lady to do what he did only for him to discover that she was a virgin.
“The victim, who was bleeding profusely was quickly taken to General Hospital Ijebu Ode for medical attention.
“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to Anti Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State criminal investigation department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.”
