Man, 35, nabbed for defiling nine-year-old in Ondo
Ondo Police Command on Wednesday arrested a notorious child molester, Kelvin Abugu, for allegedly defiling a minor in the state.

The 35-year-old was paraded along with 11 other suspects who were apprehended over various offences.

Ondo Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami presented the suspects while giving an account of his stewardship since assuming duty in the state in May.

Salami explained that on May 2 about 2.20pm, the victim's mother reported at the station that she discovered blood coming from her daughter's private parts.

When she probed further, the girl said it was one Kelvin Abugu, who inserted his finger and later his penis into her private parts.

The commissioner remarked that the police swung into action immediately, stressing that when Abugu was arrested, he owned up to the offence.

Salami said that the police had completed its investigation and the case was ready for prosecution.
However, the courts are still shut due to the judicial workers' strike.

"Under this same period, we have arrested various criminals for various offences, some of which were through media cooperation and useful information from members of public.

"In one month, we arrested 11 suspects, recovered 26 generating sets and one Honda CRV Jeep.

"Therefore, I am also using this medium to ask for more of media collaborative efforts and the good people of Ondo State to ensure that the Sunshine State remains the lowest crime rate in the country," he said.
