Father, 46, Rapes 17-year-old Daughter in Abeokuta

Olusegun Oluwole, 46, has reportedly raped his daughter, 17, in Ogun State, asserting that he did not know what came over him while committing the incestuous act.

The police arrested Oluwole after the complaint lodged by the victim at the Ibara Police Station in Abeokuta.

SP Abimbola Opeyemi, the Ogun police spokesman, told newsmen on Sunday that the victim had informed the police that while she was sleeping in their one-room apartment in the Amolaso area of Abeokuta around 11:30 pm, “her father, having observed that others are fast asleep, suddenly grabbed her and forcefully had sex with her with a threat to kill her if she refused to allow him.”

After receiving the report, the DPO of the Ibara division, CSP Bernard Egbondiya, sent his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.
