Mrs. Dorothy Gimba, Commissioner of Police, Osun Command, has initiated an investigation into the allegation.
Speaking with the newsmen, on Sunday, Mrs. Gimba said the police would ensure that justice was done in the case.
A statement by the command said the Police Family Unit would give the victim, “who is a kindergarten,” medical attention.
The alleged rapist Olateju attempted to defile the minor in his salon on August 2, 2013 but a local, Obisesan Gbolahan, caught him in the act and immediately reported the case to Dada Estate Police station, Osogbo.
Olateju said to have undressed the little girl inside his shop and was about defiling her when a witness raised the alarm.
The rapist subsequently sneaked away during the commotion that greeted his alleged act. His location is still unknown.
