LAGOS-(MaraviPost)-The primary five pupil was allegedly defiled by a 67-year-old landlord on Legacy Road, Ayobo, Lagos State, one Sanni Arowolo aka Matagbamole.
It was learnt that Glory’s aunt, identified simply as Bose, had rented a shop from Arowolo where she sold beans.
Glory was said to be in charge of the shop sometime in February when her aunt was not around. Arowolo reportedly approached her that day on the pretext that he wanted to buy food and asked her to follow him into his room to collect a plate.
City Round gathered that the girl asked her younger sister, who was at the shop with her, to follow Arowolo but the man declined, insisting that Glory should go with him.
On getting into his room, the sexagenarian allegedly locked the door and forcefully had sex with the girl, threatening to kill her if she revealed the incident to her aunt.
Glory, it was learnt, kept the assault to herself until in April when her aunt observed that she was pregnant.
Bose told our correspondent that after much persuasion, Glory opened up that it was Arowolo who impregnated her.
She said, “It is something that really breaks my heart each time I think of it. The man was friendly to us. We related with each other as father and daughter. I never expected he could do such a thing.
“I learnt that he wanted to buy beans that day and asked Glory to come to his room for a plate. Glory sent her sister to collect the plate but he insisted she should come.
In respect for an elderly man, she eventually followed him to collect the plate. She waited at the doorstep and the man asked her to go in and pick a plate from the basket.
As she was searching through the basket, the man shut the door and forcefully had sex with her.
