There was a mild-drama at Igando Police Station in Alimosho Council of Lagos State when a  28-year old man, Wale Ipolola, escaped from the police station where he was detained over  alleged involvement in a rape case.

Wale was arrested by the police for allegedly raping a 6-year old girl (names withheld)  who was his neighbour’s daughter.

Instead of defending the charge against him at the police station, he attempted to  escape. But he was unlucky as the policemen launched a manhunt for him and was  re-arrested.

He was arraigned on a two-count charge of rape and escape from police custody at Ejigbo  Magistrate’s Court.

Police claimed he took the little girl inside his room, laid her on the bed and had sex  with her.

The incident happened at their residence, 28, Modina Road, Egan, on the outskirts of  Lagos, South West Nigeria.

She raised an alarm and confronted the defendant. She later reported the incident at the  police station.

The suspect was later arrested and charged to an Ejigbo magistrate’s court.

When the charge was read to him, he pleaded not guilty.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs. S. O. Solebo, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with  two responsible sureties in the like sum.

The matter has been adjourned till 1 November for hearing.
