The officers of Makinde Police station are yet to apprehend a 40 years old painter, whose name was given as Mukaila, popularly known as Owawa, for unlawfully defiling a 15 years old deaf and dumb girl at Mafoluku, Oshodi Lagos.
The incident happened recently when Mukaila took the advantage of the the condition of his victim to have unlawfully sex with her in a shop he was given to paint.
The accused, who was living in his family house at No 7, Ariori street Mafoluku Oshodi, was said to have lured the innocent victim with cooked noddles and egg.
According to an eye witness, the perpetrator committed the crime in the presence of his 5 years old son who was with him in the shop.
The eye witness also volunteered to accompany the father of the victim to police station to testify in statement.
The father of the victim, a widower, and chief Imam could not report the case immediately due to communication barrier between him and his daughter.
Echonews learnt that he later took the case to Makinde police who contracted the child protection network (CPN) Oshodi chapter.
Upon hearing the case, the CPN coordinator, Mr. Ebenezer Omejalile, referred the victim to Mirable Centre for test and treatment.
It was gathered that the father of the victim had refused to re-marry after the demise of his wife who left him with three children.
However, the victim has been given medical examination with the necessary psychosocial support.
The police are still on lookout for the perpetrator who has absconded from the family house when he noticed the case had been reported to the police.
