Samuel Effiok, 28, was arrested for allegedly having sex with an 8-year-old girl inside the Police Barracks.
It was gathered that the incident occurred at the Mounted Troops Police Barracks in Lagos’ Ikeja neighbourhood, where they live.
According to the police, the suspect, Effiok, lured the young girl into an apartment in the afternoon, removed her pant, and then penetrated her. During the dastardly act, he allegedly injured her by forcefully penetrating her.
After he was satisfied, he let the girl go with the injury she had sustained in her private area. The girl told her parents about what had happened, and they contacted the police. Effiok was apprehended and charged for the alleged crime before the Ogba Magistrate Court after a thorough interrogation.
After the prosecutor, DSP Kehinde Ajayi, requested that the case be referred to the DPP for advice because the victim was still a minor, the Court did not accept his plea.

Mrs. A.O. Ajibade, the Presiding Magistrate, ordered his remand in custody pending the DPP’s advice, and directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send it to the DPP.
The case was postponed until September 6, 2021, to allow the DPP’s report to be completed, and the case may be transferred to the High Court if the DPP finds him guilty and recommends a trial over jurisdiction.
