The Police Command in Ogun State has confirmed the arrest of 46-year-old Olusegun Oluwole for allegedly raping his 17-year-old daughter.
His arrest followed a complaint lodged at Ibara police station in Abeokuta by the man’s own daughter (name withheld).
This was discussed in a statement Sunday by the state Police Spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
Oyeyemi said the father forcefully raped his own daughter and threatened to kill her if she dared to tell anyone about the incident.
He stated that, “The girl said while she was sleeping in their one room apartment at Amolaso area of Abeokuta, on a night, her father, having observed that others were fast asleep suddenly grabbed her and forcefully had sex with her.
“On interrogation, the father of six, who confessed to the crime pleaded for forgiveness, claiming not knowing what came over him when he committed the crime,” Oyeyemi said.
