The Edo State Police Command has arrested two men – Collins Otabor (30) and Junior Ozoba (30) – over the defilement of a 13-year-old girl in Ekehuan, in the Egor Local Government Area of Edo State.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Bello Kontongs, in a statement on Sunday, alleged that Otabor lured the minor to Ozoba’s house where he committed the crime on April 28, 2022.

The statement read, “In its renewed efforts to stem the increasing rate of sexual violence against women and children, the Edo State Police Command under the leadership of CP Abutu Yaro, on April 29, 2022, arrested the duo of Collins Odaro Otabor (30) and Junior Ozoba (30) for conspiracy and defiling of a 13-year-old patient in Ekehuan, Egor LGA, Edo State.

“One of the suspects, Otabor, a father of one, confessed to luring the victim to Ozoba’s room and forcibly having carnal knowledge of her.”

Kontongs stated that the CP had directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department to carry out a detailed investigation into the matter, assuring that the suspects would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
