A 42-year-old driver, Seyi Olowukere, has confessed to raping seven boys.

Olowukere was arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police command for sodomizing a young boy.

The suspect lured the victim from a football field to his apartment at Alhaji Marshal Street, Surulere, Lagos where he perpetrated the act.

The 12-year-old victim that led to his arrests, (names withheld), had told the police, “I was playing football with my friends when Mr. Seyi asked me to freestyle for him because I am a rapper. I rapped a few songs for him and he asked me to come with him that he will help me.

“When we got to his apartment, he removed his clothes and asked me to do same. And then from behind, he inserted his manhood into my anus. He begged me to suck his breast, I said no.

“When he was done, he pleaded with me not to tell anyone but when I got home, I couldn’t keep it to myself. So I told my parents, who got the Police involved.”

Vanguard quoted the suspect as saying, “I promised to help him when I saw him playing and singing with his friends. I asked him to follow me that I will help him.

“When we got to my house, I locked the door, asked the little boy to take of his clothes and kneel down after which I inserted my manhood inside his anus from behind and the little boy wasn’t shouting.

“I have been doing this for a long time. I have done it with seven people including adults.

I am not a ritualist. I am a native of Uso in Ondo state. I want the police to help me in this case.

“I am a driver, I was married but we have separated. And I have a child.”

It was gathered that the victim was taken to Mirabel Centre for treatment, where it was confirmed that there was penetration.

The spokesperson for Lagos State Police Command, Chike Oti, confirmed the report, stating that the case was still under investigation and that the suspect will be charged to court.

Speaking at his maiden meeting with Command Police Commissioners and zonal AIGs, in Abuja on Thursday, Baba said the IGP Monitoring Units will be re-organized.

The development is coming 24 hours after the Police Service Commission asked the IGP to check the proliferation of police investigating units.

The commission stated that the units were bringing huge embarrassments to the force.

The commission Chairman, Musiliu Smith, said there must be proper and close monitoring of police investigative units to stem the atrocities its officials committed in the line of duty.

The retired IGP had also stressed the need to quickly treat cases of misconduct by the officers “so that those found wanting are brought to book”.

Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki has faulted the Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, for denying that the Federal Government printed N60 billion in March to support allocation to states.

Obaseki has said he won’t join issues with the Federal Government over his claim that N60 billion was printed in March to support allocation to states.

Obaseki had lamented the fiscal state of the nation, stating Nigeria is in financial trouble.

While speaking at the Edo state transition committee stakeholders engagement over the weekend, he claimed the Federal Government printed money to bridge FAAC allocation.

“When we got FAAC for March, the federal government printed additional N50-N60 billion to top-up for us to share,” he had said.

But it was reported on Wednesday the Federal Government faulted his claim, dismissing it as untrue.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, said Obaseki’s claim was very sad because it was “untrue”.

Reacting to the counter-reaction on Thursday, Obaseki, through his official Twitter handle, said: “We believe it is our duty to offer useful advice for the benefit of our country

“The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, @ZShamsuna should rally Nigerians to stem the obvious fiscal slide facing our country.

“Rather than play the Ostrich, we urge the government to take urgent steps to end the current monetary rascality so as to prevent the prevailing economic challenge from degenerating further.

“We believe it is imperative to approach the Nigerian project with all sense of responsibility and commitment and not play to the gallery because ultimately time shall be the judge of us all.”
