A 71-year-old physically-challenged man, Richard Odiwe, has been arrested for allegedly raping a primary six pupil, Bimbo (pseudonym).
According to Punch, Bimbo, who lives with her grandmother in Ago-Alagbede in the Agbado area of Ogun State, fled home last Tuesday around 5.30am after she was told that an.....uncle wanted to beat her for her unruly behaviour.
Odiwe was said to have harboured the 12-year-old girl in his residence at Atila, a neighbouring community, where he committed the alleged crime.
Our correspondent was told that the septuagenarian had been living with his younger brother, who is a tenant of Bimbo’s grandmother. He was, however, sent packing in 2013 after he was suspected of sexually abusing female children in the community.
