Nigerian comedienne and actress, Damilola Adekoya, alias Princess, on Monday alerted the public on the rape and death of a 10-year-old in the Ayobo area of Lagos State.
Princess disclosed this via Instagram, noting that the incident happened on Sunday.
She added that the police had denied the victim’s family access to the child’s corpse.
She has hence begged the general public to visit the Ayobo police station and assist the child’s mother in getting justice.

While weeping, Princess said;
“If you live around Ayobo, help me go to Ayobo police station. This girl was raped and killed yesterday. Her name is Aisha.
“When you get to Ayobo police station, please DM me your number. The police are not allowing the mother of the child to see the child. The police just said she couldn’t see her; that they’ve taken her to the mortuary.
“She’s almost losing her mind. I’m begging you. It could be anyone’s child. She was going to church yesterday. They raped her, killed her in the afternoon, and threw her into somebody’s compound.”
The Divisional Police Officer of Ayobo command, Charles Oladele, when contacted said that he couldn’t speak on the matter as the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Ben Hundeyin was the one to do so.
“Please, if you need any information about this matter, pass through Lagos State PPRO. It is better if you try calling him. It is not the duty of my office to give you that information,” Oladele told our correspondent via phone call.
Hundeyin was yet to respond to calls and messages sent to him at press time.
