A 45-year-old man, Olaoluwa Jimoh, has been arrested by men of the Ogun state police command for impregnating his biological daughter.
He was arrested on the 16th of September, following a complaint lodged at Ode Remo divisional headquarters by the victim.
She complained that her father whom she lived with for two years forcefully had sex with her in June 2021.
A statement by the command’s PRO, Abimbola Oyeyemi, further stated that the suspect repeatedly raped her and threatened to kill her if she informs anyone.
“The 19-year-old victim informed the police that her mother has separated from the father long time ago, and that she has been living with her mother until about two years ago when the suspect asked her to come and be living with him. She decided to report, not minding the threat of her father, when she discovered that she has got pregnant.
“Upon the report, the DPO Ode Remo division, Fasogbon Olayemi, detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime but claimed that he was used by the devil.
“The Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.”
