Men of the Ogun State Police command have apprehended a man identified as Solomon Ogundetu for defiling his 12-year-old daughter since 2018.
The police swiftly arrested the 30-year-old Ogundetu after his daughter reported him to her teacher who in turn confided in a community leader, Alhaji Obamuyiwa Semiu who made a complaint.
The state’s police spokesperson Abimbola Oyeyemi, while parading Ogundetu, said the suspect confessed to the crime when interrogated.
Abimbola said ;
“The victim, a primary school pupil confided in one of her teachers that her father has been having carnal knowledge of her since last year with threat to kill her if she dare tell anybody. But when she can no longer bear it, she has to inform her teacher who in-turn informed the Alhaji.
“Investigation revealed that he has separated from the mother of the girl for years now and the girl is the only product of the union. The victim has been taken to general hospital for medical care and report.”
