The boy was arrested after they were caught and transferred to the Gender Section of the Police Command in Ikeja for interrogation.
In the course of investigation, he reportedly confessed sleeping with the 5-year old victim.
Having been found culpable by the Police despite his age, he was charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for defilement which attracts several years of imprisonment if he is tried in Court and found guilty over the alleged offence.
