The police in Lagos State have arrested a 27-year old Islamic cleric, Alfa Abdulrasheed Mukaila, for allegedly having sex with a 15-year old physically challenged girl inside a popular Mosque in the Ilasamaja area of the state.
Mukaila allegedly took advantage of the victim right inside a Mosque. The mother of the victim noticed her daughter’s unusual steps when she returned home and upon inquiry, she told her mother what the Alfa did to her.
The girl’s mother took her to the General Hospital in the area where some bruises were discovered around her vagina area.
The case was reported at Zone D Police Command, Mushin, and the cleric was said to have gone into hiding. Following futile attempts to locate the cleric by men of the police force, the policemen arrested the Imam and some Alfas from the Mosque in order for them to produce the cleric who perpetrated the act.
After intensive search, the suspected rapist was arrested and is currently in police detention. The police say he will soon be charged to court.
