We reported before now, that the founder of a non-governmental organisation, was arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, for allegedly sodomizing his twin sons. 37-year-old Jephath Ighodaro, was arrested in the Aguda, Surulere area of the state by the police and some officials of the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender.
A source told A Day Info that the case was reported by the suspect’s wife after the two boys, aged four, fondled her breasts in an “adult way.”
The source said the woman became alarmed when she saw the twins attempting to make love to each other, adding that when she queried them, they said their father had been doing the same thing to them. He said;
“The woman and the suspect got married over four years ago. The woman came from a family that is not well to do, while the man came from a rich family.
“The woman said throughout their marriage, the man only made love to her about six times. The woman suspected that something was wrong with him as he abandoned her sexually.
“She said she could not cry out because she was afraid. She raised the issue with the suspect’s sister who lives abroad and she dismissed it. The man’s family asked her to keep quiet. She lived with the husband in a flat in their family house.”
A Day Info learnt that the matter was reported to the OPD, who started an investigation into it. A source at the government agency disclosed that the children were taken to the Mirabel Medical Centre, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, where tests were carried out on them.
