Police arrest 28-year-old man for raping his biological daughter
The Police Command in Ogun said it has arrested a 28-year-old man, Adeyemi Babatunde, for allegedly having unlawful carnal knowledge of his 5-year-old daughter.
SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, spokesperson of the command said in a statement on Thursday in Abeokuta that the suspect was arrested on Monday.
He said Babatunde was arrested following a complaint lodged at Ijebu Mushin Divisional Headquarters by the mother of the victim.
According to him, the mother had reported that she noticed her daughter had been complaining of pain whenever she wanted to urinate while bathing her or coming in contact with her private part.
Oyeyemi said the mother told the police that her daughter also confessed to her that her father laid her on the bed and inserted his manhood into her private part when she was not at home.
The police spokesperson said, “Upon receipt of the complaint, the DPO in Ijebu Mushin Division quickly detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was eventually arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime but claimed not to know what came over him at that time,” he said.
Oyeyemi said the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to Anti Human Trafficking and Child Labour Section of the State CID for further investigation and prosecution.
