The dramatic incident, happened around 2am in Delagan Compound, Osogbo. The cry of a young girl woke the occupants of the house and on getting there, it was discovered that her panties had been taken off. The thief was no where to be found.
The father of the victim, Raheem, was said to have consulted a herbalist, who revealed to him that the perpetrator of the act was living in the same house with him.
On getting home, Raheem called the occupants of the house and gave a warning that if the thief did not confess, there is consequences that await such fellow.
