A 'gay' 35-year-old man, Ilesanmi Omojuyigbe, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy, Babatunde Adebayo, at Iju area of Ondo State.
It was gathered that the victim was lured to the suspect’s room on the pretext that he wanted to buy frozen fish from the boy.
The victim, on entering the room, was said to have been held down and his trouser forcefully torn before the suspect defiled him.
His mouth was said to have been covered by the suspect so that his cries and shout would not attract neighbours to his house.
After the indecent act, the suspect appealed to the victim and promised to buy him whatever he wanted.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Wole Ogodo, who confirmed this on Tuesday, in Akure, stated that the man was arrested after a report was made to the police.
