The Ogun Police Command has arrested a 45-year-old man who allegedly had carnal knowledge of his 13-year-old daughter.
The spokesperson for the command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, made the disclosure in a statement in Abeokuta on Tuesday.
Oyeyemi said that the suspect was arrested at Obantoko area of Abeokuta.
The spokesperson said that the arrest followed a complaint by the alleged victim at the Obantoko Divisional Police Headquarters on Thursday.
“The victim had reported at Obantoko Divisional Police Headquarters on Dec. 30, 2020, that her father came to the shop, where she worked as a tailoring apprentice, to seek permission for her to fetch water for him at home.
“She said that she left the shop to fetch water as requested by her father.
“She added that while she was at it, her father grabbed her and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.
“On the strength of the report, the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Sunday Opebiyi, quickly detailed detectives to the man’s house at Obantoko where he was promptly arrested,” the spokesperson said.
Oyeyemi said that the suspect initially denied the allegation but when confronted by the alleged victim, he became speechless.

“Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, has ordered immediate transfer of the case to the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigations and prosecution,” Oyeyemi added. (NAN)
