The Nigeria Police, Ogun State Command has arrested the Baale of Oose Agbedu Ajibawo in Owode Yewa Area, Rasheed Sholabi, for allegedly having unlawful carnal knowledge of his fifteen-year-old daughter.
In a statement by the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi, the village head was apprehended following a report by the victim to the Owode-Egbado Police Station that her father had been having sex with her since when she clocked eleven and as a result of which she now foundd it difficult to control her urinary system.
Mr oyeyemi said the victim told the police that she lost her mother when she was barely two years and the suspect did not allow her to know any of her late mother’s relation, thereby left her with no option than to continue staying with the suspect, who used that opportunity to sexually abuse her from time to time.
The state police image maker explained that on interrogation, the suspect denied the allegation, but when confronted by the victim and one of his ex-wife who corroborated the victim’s statement, the suspect fainted and was taken to the hospital for resuscitation.
Mr Oyeyemi stressed that the suspect’s ex-wife informed the police that she caught the Baale red-handed while having sex with his daughter and that was the reason she left the marriage.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun has ordered the transfer of the suspect to the ant-human trafficking and child labor unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for an in-depth investigation and diligence prosecution.
