85-year-old grandpa arrested for raping 12-year-old says, ‘she seduced me’

An 85-year old man, Pa  Samuel Oladipupo, was nabbed by the men of Ekiti State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old girl (name withheld).
The octogenarian  suspect, however, confessed to have made an attempt to make love with the girl, but denied ever having carnal knowledge  of Junior Secondary School girl.
The suspect who allegedly committed the crime last Sunday at his No. 9 Barrack Road, Ado Ekiti and now being detained at the police headquarters, claimed that the junior secondary school girl had  seduced him  into making love with her.
The father of the girl, has countered the claim of the suspect.
The Police image maker, Victor Babayemi  Olu, an Assistant Super-intendent of Police, said the victim had been taken  to Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, where series of tests were  conducted on her to ascertain whether she was actually raped or not.
Speaking under interrogation, Pa Oladipupo said he had sent the victim to buy recharge card at a nearby phone booth on that fateful day and allowed her to go home after she helped him to load it.
“To let you know that I never  intended to commit the crime, after she had helped me load  the  recharge card on my phone right in my house, I allowed her to go without making any overture.
“But later, the victim resurfaced and came to tell me that she was famished and ask me what kind of food I had at home. I told her I only had bread and stew and she followed me inside and ate the food.
“After she finished with the food, she rested on the chair and then pulled off her clothes and told me to examine her pubic hairs. Later, she told me to examine her boobs and asked me why the two breasts were not the same, but I told her that it was natural to be so.
“As a man, I began to lose control. I then pushed her onto the bed and climbed  on her.
But as I was about inserting my penis into her vagina, I quickly remembered that this might  be a plan to frame me and I quickly stood up, so I didn’t enter her”, Pa Oladipupo explained.
But the girl denied ever  seducing the old man. She said that the man first accused her of stealing his phone, but when he found it in his house, he began fondling with her.
“I had earlier helped him to buy a recharge card, and he later accused  me of stealing his phone,” she said.
