A middle-aged man has reportly impregnated his teenage daughter in Ogun State, and is currently held by the police for questioning.
The suspect, 45-year-old Olaoluwa Jimoh, ran into trouble when the now pregnant sexually assaulted 19-year-old girl (name withheld) lodged a complaint at the Ode-Remo Police Divisional Headquarters on September 16, 2021.
In her narratives to the Police, the complainant stated that she had been living with her mother since the break-up of her parent’s marriage years back and had to return to her father, upon his pestering request.
Two years ago, according to the Police press release issued by the Ogun State spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the girl relocated to her father’s abode.
But, three months ago, precisely in June, 2021, the evil thought of having an affair with the girl crept into Olaoluwa’s mind, that he gladly embraced.
He threw caution into the wind and forcefully slept with his daughter.
The first attempt was so pleasant to Olaoluwa, so much so, that it became a recurring affair, amid threat to kill the innocent girl, should she divulge the story to anyone.
Things took a different dimension when the girl noticed that she was pregnant and discountenanced her father’s incessant threats to kill her by confiding in the police
“Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), CSP Fasogbon Olayemi, quickly detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was promptly arrested”, the PPRO said in the press statement, adding that, on interrogation by the Police, the suspect did not only own up to committing the crime, he but blamed his shameful act on the devil.
“Meanwhile, the statement further revealed 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.
