A 10-year-old girl, Novisat Ismaila, passed on
in Ojo, Lagos two weeks after she was allegedly raped by her madam’s husband.
It was gathered that
Ismaila, an apprentice at Ayo Ajayi’s ( the suspect’s wife) hairdressing shop died on Sunday, May 15, 2022, after receiving treatment at a hospital for 2 weeks.
A source disclosed that the prime suspect identified as Anifiwose Bayo fled with his wife and kids following the death of Ismalia.
“Ismaila was learning hairdressing from Ajo when she was raped by her husband. She didn’t tell anyone at first until she fell ill and was rushed to the hospital, where she later confirmed to the doctor that she was raped.
She couldn’t walk well for days and she wasn’t eating. The suspect was arrested by the police shortly after the victim made the revelation, but he was granted bail after the victim’s family accepted his wife’s apology.
Immediately after the girl died, the suspect, his wife, and their four kids took to their heels. Right now, the police are searching for them. This happened at Amusuigboro street in Ojo,” the source said.
