The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 52 -year- old man for allegedly impregnating his own daughter at the Sango Ota area of the State. The suspect, Ikhine, was alleged to have raped his daughter several times before he finally put her in a family way.
A senior police officer blamed the victim who he said was 18-years -old for not reporting her father on time as the sex escapade would not have degenerated to pregnancy.
He said the suspect was arrested at iyaniwura street Joju area of Sango Ota, following a report by Yemisi Ashade, who came to the station with the victim. Yemisi complained that the victim (names withheld) came to her house and confided in her on how her father had been abusing her sexually whenever she was alone at home.
She said she advised that the only solution was to report the matter to the police and she brought the victim to the station. The victim also reported that her father would always threaten to deal with her if she told anyone about the rape. The victim stated further that she could no longer bear the sexual assaults hence she confided on her neighbour who brought her to the station.
The Ogun State police public relations officer ( PPRO) DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said after hearing the report, the divisional police officer (DPO), Sango Ota, CSP Godwin Idehai, detailed his detectives to the scene where the randy father of the victim was promptly arrested.
