Police operatives from the Ogun State Command have arrested a 46-year old father, Olusegun Oluwole, for allegedly threatening his 17-year old daughter and forcefully engaging her in sex.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened at Amolaso area of Abeokuta, Ogun State, where they reside.
The arrest was carried out by the Ogun State security outfit – So–Safe–Corps, and handed him over to the Police for prosecution.
This was confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who stated that the suspect is in Police custody undergoing interrogation for the alleged dastardly act.
Oyeyemi stated that the suspect was said to have grabbed his daughter around 11:30 pm, raped her and thereafter threatened to kill her if she refuses to allow him.
He stated that the report got to the Police on Sunday and the Divisional Police Officer, Ibara Division, Bernard Egbondiya, detailed detectives to move into the matter. The suspect was then arrested and detained for interrogation.
During interrogation, the father of six confessed to the crime and pleaded for forgiveness, claiming not knowing what came over him when he had sex with his daughter.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of the suspect to State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and possible prosecution, while the victim was taken to General Hospital for treatment.
The suspect may likely be charged before the Court for defilement, which attracts several years of imprisonment if he is found guilty but that will be after the conclusion of investigations by the Police.
