While being paraded before newsmen on Monday, the suspect denied the allegation, claiming that the mother of the victim did not keep her daughter under his care on the day the alleged incident took place.

He said, “My neighbour just accused me of raping her daughter; but I didn’t do it. I have told everyone in our community that I have no hands in the ugly incident.”

But the Commissioner of Police, CP, Adeleye Oyebade, who paraded the suspect, said investigation was ongoing.
