Suspected rapist, Adewunmi Lawal

Police have declared one Adewunmi Lawal wanted for allegedly breaking into neighbor’s house and raping their daughter in Itele, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

According to Punch, the victim’s mother, who is a widow, left the 16-year-old girl and her three siblings at home while she went to Badagry in Lagos State for prayer meeting.

Two days after she left home, Adewunmi allegedly broke into her house at the night and had carnal knowledge of her 16-year-old daughter.

The victim later informed her mother, who asked her to report the incident to a human rights organisation, the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, in order to get justice.

The matter was also reported at the Itele Police Station, but efforts to apprehend Adewunmi proved abortive as he reportedly went missing immediately after the incident almost two months ago.

In an interview with Punch, the victim’s mother said Adewunmi took advantage of her absence to perpetrate the crime, adding that he and his wife had been appealing to her for settlement, but she declined.

Explaining how the incident happened, the widow said;

I travelled on Thursday to Badagry and left my younger children in my teenage daughter’s care. On Saturday, Adewunmi, whose house is opposite where I stay and had just returned from his working place after two years, broke into my apartment and forcefully had carnal knowledge of my daughter.

He did that after noticing that I was not around. He came to my apartment in the night, started knocking the window and repeatedly called my daughter’s name to open the door, but she and her siblings refused. So, he left and came back 45 minutes later. This time, the younger children were already asleep, because it was raining.

She added;

My daughter, who was still awake, suddenly heard someone breaking the back door of my apartment and when she moved closer to find out, she saw Adewunmi using a bench to break the wooden door to force his way in. When he gained entry, he struggled with her till he overpowered her and forcefully had sex with her on the floor.

While demanding justice, the victim’s mother said she was told that Adewunmi wanted to use her daughter for rituals, adding that the victim had been acting strangely since the incident.

She said;

When my daughter wanted to shout, he used a cloth to cover her mouth till he finished and left. My daughter called and informed me about the incident and said Adewunmi deflowered her. My comrades in the CDHR and I reported the matter to the Itele Police Station and when we asked for Adewunmi, his wife said he had left home since 4am.

The incident happened on June 6, 2020, and he ran away on June 7, and we have not seen him since then. I took my daughter to a lot of people for assistance and I have been told that Adewunmi wanted to use her for rituals. He believes that there is no one to fight for me to get justice, that is why I need the government to help me.

When contacted by the publication, Adewunmi said;

The allegation is a lie; if not because of my work, I would have come to Lagos. I caught her daughter and his junior brother having sex. It was when I went to pluck a leaf at the back of their house that I saw them.

I was with them inside their house, where she was pleading with me not to tell her mother; it is a taboo and she was scared that I would report to her mother; she is trying to blackmail me.

When asked how he gained entry into the house, he recanted his earlier statement and said, “I did not enter their house.”

The victim’s mother was later contacted and informed about the alleged incest by her children, but she refuted the claim and said, “We have evidence and recordings that he did it.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Adewunmi had been declared wanted by the command, stressing;

The man is on our wanted list; we gathered that the man is living in Port Harcourt and the victim’s mother doesn’t know the exact place where he stays in Port Harcourt, but he is a landlord in the area where the crime was committed. The case has been transferred to the SCIID for proper investigation and I believe that very soon, we are going to get him.

On Adewunmi’s incest allegation against the victim and her brother, the PPRO said;

That claim is a plea of alibi. If he didn’t do it, why is he on the run? Why can’t he show up? Why is he calling the mother of the victim and begging her that he is ready to settle?

A clear conscience doesn’t fear any accusation. If he didn’t do it, why has he not shown up at the police station to clear his name? Why did he abandon his house?

Oyeyemi stated that the case have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for further investigation.
