The Ogun State Police Command has arrested one Olaoluwa Jimoh, 45, for allegedly having sexual relationship with his daughter which later resulted in pregnancy.
Jimoh was arrested on Thursday, September 16, 2021, after the daughter reported at Ode Remo Divisional Headquarters.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said in a statement on Monday, September 20, that the daughter told the police that her father, whom she had been living with for two years, forcefully had sex with her in June this year.
According to her, since that June, her father has been raping her on many occasions and has even threatened to kill her if she dared tell anyone.
The 19-year-old victim also told the police that her mother got separated from her father a long time ago, and that she had been living with her mother until about the past two years when her father asked her to start living with him.
She added that she decided to report, not minding the threat to her father, when she discovered that she was pregnant.
“Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer, 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 commission of the crime but claimed that he was used by the devil,” the PPRO disclosed.
Oyeyemi noted that the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun had ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
