A middle-aged man has been beaten and arrested for fingering a 5-year-old girl in Festac Town, Lagos State.

It was gathered from Olagunju Oladele who shared the story on Twitter that the little girl was bleeding when she was taken to the clinic by her mother.

The parents were advised to report the case at the Police Station but they were asked to pay a certain amount before the case can be filed.

The parents were advised to opt for compensation which some concerned citizens stopped and insisted that justice must be served.

“This man below fingered a5-year-old girl at Festac Town. Stop & read what I typed again. The full-grown man took advantage of a child. She was bleeding when the mum took her to d clinic. @festaconline @sugabelly
@Mochievous @NASPC1952 @AmnestyNigeria @segalink @aproko_doctor

People around started beating the man until the Army in charge of the area took him into custody. They asked the parents to call @PoliceNG but as usual someone at the station asked for money to register the case. The parents didn’t know what to do and too broke to handle the case. So they opted out for compensation from the culprit. I got there & stopped whatever compensation. This man must face justice. I’d some help around and we called some friendly police officers to help pick up the man, this approach came with tips and recharge cards

I am presently at the Police Station at Festac Town Area command with the parents and the child to get justice. The victim looking at her molester.”

This would not be the first case of abuse as many children have been abused by their relations, while some get justice, others opt for compensation which always denies the victim closure.
