Being a teenager is not enough assurance that your children are mature enough to take care of themselves.

The case of 28-year-old Seyi Adelana and his 17-year-old victim is another reminder for parents that you cannot be too careful with your kids.

The victim in this case is a boy and the suspect is also a man.

The boy’s mother cried out when her son suddenly disappeared from home on January 3, 2019.

With the help of neighbours, a search party was raised to look for him.

Four days after, being January 7, 2019, he was found in the house of the suspect, Seyi Adelana at no 11 Itumaro Street, Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos.

The police had become actively involved at this point.

When the young boy was debriefed at the Gender Unit, he narrated that the suspect kept him in his house and had been having anal sex with him.

He also mentioned the name of one other boy whom the suspect had been sexually abusing.

The suspect has since confessed to have committed the crime and was paraded at the Force Headquarters in Ikeja on Tuesday.

The devastated mother of the victim is demanding justice and the Police Command’s Gender section is currently investigating a case of sodomy against Seyi Adelana to enable them to build a case in court.

The suspect will be charged to court at the end of the investigation and he could be convicted based on evidences, but will his victim live a normal life again?

This can only be answered by him and medical experts if ever he is able to get help towards reconditioning his mind and body.
