There’s no sin in having sex with a 12-yr-old if she consents —Suspect


TO Adeyemi Dairo, a cobbler, having sex with

a a girl less than 16 years old is nothing

spectacular if the action takes place with the

girl’s consent. This much he said, and his

belief was played out between him and a

resident (name withheld) in his

neighbourhood at Alafara area of Ibadan,

Oyo State when he reportedly forced himself

on the secondary school student who came to

his shop for shoe repair, and had unlawful

carnal knowledge of her.

Dairo (21), an indigene of Eruwa town, Oyo

State who resides in Ibadan was alleged to

have had carnal knowledge of his victim on

August 21, 2014.

The victim, according to police sources, said

that the suspect asked her to help him take a

bench to his room. As a mark of respect, the

girl did as the cobbler requested but her

decision was at a cost as she lost her virginity.

Crime Reports learnt that the suspect

allegedly followed the girl into the room, tied

a cloth across her mouth to prevent her from

shouting and tore her tights before having his


Not only that, he was said to have threatened

the girl that he would organise a gang rape if

she should disclose what he did to her to

anyone. This threat reportedly got the girl’s

lips sealed until her mother noticed her

awkward movement few days after. The girl

was said to have opened up to her mother’s

inquiry, which prompted the report of the

incident at Eleyele police station.

Though he confessed to have had sex with the

young girl, Dairo denied the allegation of

rape, saying that she was his girlfriend. The

pastor’s son told Crime Reports: “The girl in

question is my girlfriend. I have known her for

the past six months. I told her I liked her the

first day she came to mend shoes but she said

she was not interested.

“About a month after, when she came again, I

brought up the issue and she agreed to my

proposal. She used to come to my shop

thereafter and would even bring cooked food

for me. I used to buy things for her also. We

had known for four months when she visited

me. I told that we should go to my room and

she agreed. We went in and had sex. I was not

the one who deflowered her.

“Recently, her mother followed her to my

place and asked whether I knew her and I

confirmed that she was my customer. She

said she took long in returning from an

errand and said I should always drive her

away from my shop. I was surprised when the

police came the following day to arrest me.

“I was also shocked when the allegation of

rape was levied against me, also that I tied

her hands, covered her mouth and

threatened her not to tell anybody. She is my

girlfriend, no doubt about that, and we had

sex together just once. She told me she was

14 years old and I am 27 years old. I didn’t

use condom the day I slept with her but did

not ejaculate in her.”

When asked whether he would agree that her

sister of the same age as the victim should

have a boyfriend, Dairo replied: “I don’t see

anything wrong in it. I can’t also stop her from

having sex, I will only advise her to be


When contacted, the state Police Public

Relations Officer, Mrs Olabisi Okuwobi-

Ilobanafor said that the suspect would be

charged to court after investigations, while

she warned parents to keep eagle eyes on

their female children to prevent sexual

assault on them.
