A 45-year-old man, Akanji Oluwaseyi, has allegedly defiled his biological daughter (names withheld), with him engaging in forceful sexual intercourse with her, leading to his arrest by Ogun State Police Command.
Making the disclosure on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, the Police Public Relations Officer of Ogun State, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said that Oluwaseyi was arrested after his daughter reported his act to the police at Obantoko Division in Abeokuta on December 30, 2020.
The teenager had told the police that her father came to a shop, where she was an apprentice learning tailoring, and had pleaded with her mistress to permit her to come fetch water for him at home, the PPRO revealed.
He said that the girl left her mistress’s shop to do what her father requested from her, only to be shocked when her father suddenly grabbed her and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.
“On the strength of the report, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Obantoko division, CSP Sunday Opebiyi quickly sent detectives to the suspect’s house, where he was promptly arrested.
“He initially denied the allegation, but when he was confronted by his daughter, he became dumbfounded,” Oyeyemi said.
He stated further that the teenager was quickly taken to a hospital for medical attention.
The PPRO added that the state Commissioner of Police, Edward A. Ajogun had ordered the immediate transfer of the case to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
