Man shoots Bricklayer Over Attempted Rape Of Daughter


The Lagos State Police have confirmed
the arrest of one Asiribo Baba, 40, for
allegedly shooting a bricklayer who
attempted to rape his 14 year old
daughter.

Police Inspector Femi Martins stated that
Baba allegedly shot a bricklayer
identified as Ifeanyi Arinze, 29, who
was moulding blocks at a building site in
Agbara, Lagos.

He said investigations showed that
Arinze climbed the fence of Baba’s
residence in Agbara to pluck oranges in
the compound when he saw Baba’s 14-
year-old daughter, who was sleeping
outside.

“After he plucked the oranges, he went
to the girl, sleeping on a mat, and
touched her breast but the girl
screamed.

“Arinze covered the girl’s mouth with
his hand but her younger sister, who
was playing outside, came and called
people,” he said.

The inspector added that Baba, who
heard the screaming of her daughter,
came out with a gun, ran after Arinze
and shot him in the leg as he was about
to jump over the fence.

He said other workers at the building
site reported the case immediately to
the police while Arinze was taken to the
hospital.
