50-year-old man arrested for allegedly raping autistic girl in Ondo

A 50-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping an autistic girl in Ondo state. The Ondo state police command arrested Tunde Ogunlade, accused of defiling a 20-year-old girl with autism disorder.

According to reports, Ogunlade who is a carpenter by profession, had gone to the house opposite that of the victim’s parents house to carry out some repairs. He met the victim there and took advantage of the fact that the eighty-year-old owner of the house wasn’t available. The suspect lured the autistic victim into the bathroom and raped her.

Confessing to the crime, the suspect blamed the devil for his action. According to him: ”I was working in their house when I saw the girl and I touched her and she hugged me before I put my finger into her private part. I did not sleep with her but I fingered her. It was when she was going that I noticed she was stained with blood and I followed her to the bathroom to clean her up. I don’t know what come over me because I was never involved in such an act and as a father, I will not be happy to see my daughter being treated like this but I will take responsibility if the parents insisted I must marry her.” he said.
