Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a 45-year-old man, Olaoluwa Jimoh, for allegedly impregnating his biological daughter.
The suspect was arrested last Thursday following a complaint by the victim that her father was fond of sleeping with her, adding that he later got her pregnant.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.
Oyeyemi added that the suspect was arrested following a complaint lodged at the Ode-Remo divisional police headquarters by the victim.
The PPRO said, “She reported that she had been living with her father for the past two years, but sometime in June 2021, her father forcefully had sex with her.
“She stated further that since then, she had been raped severally by her father, who always threatened to kill her if she dared inform anybody.
“The 19-year-old victim informed the police that her mother separated from the father a long time ago, and that she was living with her mother until about two years ago when the suspect asked her to come and live with him.
“She decided to report, not minding the threat of her father, when she discovered that she was pregnant.
“Upon the report, the DPO, Ode Remo division, CSP Fasogbon Olayemi, quickly detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime, but claimed that he was used by the devil.”
Oyeyemi said the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, had ordered the transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
