Ogun State Police Department arrested a 45-year-old man, Olaoluwa Jimoh, for allegedly impregnating his own biological daughter (name not given).
The suspect was arrested last Thursday after the victim complained that her father liked to molest her and later got her pregnant.
This was conveyed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyem in his statement on Monday.
Oyeyemi added that the suspect was arrested after the victim filed a complaint at the Ode-Remo divisional headquarters.
PPRO said: “she claimed to have lived with her father for the past two years, but around June 2021, her father forced her to have sex. She also claims that she has been raped several times since then by her father, who always threatened to kill her if she dared tell anyone.“
The 19-year-old victim told police that her mother had been separated from her father for a long time and that she lived with her mother until about two years ago when the suspect asked her to come to him.
She decides to go ahead, ignoring her father’s threats, when she found out she was pregnant. After receiving the report, DPO, Ode Remo, CSP Fasogbon Olayemi quickly detailed his detectives to pursue the suspect and he was immediately arrested. During interrogation, the suspect confessed to his crime but admitted to having been used by the devil.
Meanwhile Police Commissioner Edward Ajogun ordered that the case be immediately referred to the Department of Criminal Investigation and State Intelligence for further investigation.
