One Akanji Oluwaseyi,aged 45,has been apprehended by the police for reportedly raping his 13-year-old daughter.
It was disclosed by the Ogun State Police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi ,on Tuesday that the suspect was nabbed following a complaint lodged by the daughter at Obantoko divisional headquarters on December 30.
Oyeyemi said the victim had recounted to the police that her father came to the shop where she is learning tailoring and implored with her mistress to allow her come fetch water for him at home,which the girl obliged,and went home.
“But surprisingly, her father suddenly grabbed her and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.” He said.
This report prompted the DPO of Obantoko division, CSP Sunday Opebiyi, to have dispatched his ooeratives to the man’s house and he was arrested.
At first, police said the father refuted the allegation, “but when he was confronted by his daughter, he became dumbfounded.”
The victim had been taken to hospital for medical attention.
However, the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, said the case should be transfered to anti-human trafficking and child labour unit for additional probing and litigation.
