A 36-year-old homosexual, Sikiru Ajibola, allegedly sodomized a five-year-old boy till he died in Ogun State.
It was learnt that the incident happened Friday at Ogijo, Sagamu Local Government Area of the state.
The police arrested the suspect following a report lodged at the Ogijo Police Station by the Chairman of the Olorunwa Arogbeja community in Ogijo.
Arogbeja had reported to the police that a community member told him the suspect had sodomized the victim, adding that the boy died in the process.
Upon the report, the DPO of Ogijo division, CSP Enatufe Omoh, was said to have detailed his men to the scene, where the suspect was arrested.
On interrogation, the arrested suspect had confessed to being a homosexual, “and that while he was having sex with the deceased boy, he gave up the ghost,” the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun, Abimbola Oyeyemi, quoted him as saying.
He reportedly confessed further that he dug the ground in the bush to bury the boy in a shallow grave.
“He has also taken policemen to where the deceased was buried,” Oyeyemi said.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the case be transferred to the State CIID for further investigation and prosecution.
