The Ikorodu division of the Lagos State Police Command has arrested 20-year-old security guard Samuel Maikasuw for allegedly molesting and impregnating his employer’s teenage daughter.
According to a civil society organization aware with the situation, Advocates for Children and Vulnerable Peoples Network, Maikasuw reportedly fathered a child with his employer’s 15-year-old daughter.
The accused served as a gatekeeper at the residence of one Fadiji, who was the victim’s “surrogate father”.
Last year, Maikasuw was reportedly discovered in a compromising situation with a minor, but he was cautioned against repeating the incident.
The ACVPN said, “The perpetrator who defiled and impregnated a 15 years old girl is Samuel Maikasuw 20yr old. He hails from Abaji in the FCT.
“He was a security man at Ms. Fadiji’s house. He was once caught with the minor last year and was severely warned never to come near the little girl again and he apologised.
“He was later transferred to the shop of the landlord’s wife who later converted him to a sales boy. He was arrested by the vigilantes and policemen in the Ikorodu area after the act. The suspect has been detained at Ikorodu division, Igbogbo.”
When SaharaReporters contacted the Lagos State Police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, he confirmed the arrest, noting that the crime was “defilement of a minor” which is punishable under the law.
He said, “It is confirmed. It is not just as simple as saying he impregnated someone. Under the law, it is defilement. He defiled a minor. The issue is still being investigated.”
