Ogun State Police Command has arrested Abiodun Oladapo, a 43-year-old man, for allegedly impregnating his 19-year-old biological daughter and forcing her to claim that her boyfriend was responsible for the pregnancy.
The arrest followed a complaint by Oluwatoyin Idowu On March 24, who reported that her son was falsely accused of impregnating the victim.
SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police command spokesperson, the victim, who is currently five months pregnant, confessed to the police that her father had been having sexual intercourse with her since February 2022 and threatened to harm her if she disclosed it to anyone.
''According to the victim, when it was discovered that she is pregnant, her father asked her to lie against Michael Idowu of being responsible for the pregnancy. Upon her confession, the DPO Mowe division, SP Folake Afeniforo detailed detectives to go after the randy father, and he was subsequently arrested. On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect who had long separated with the victim's mother took custody of the girl when her mother remarried and they have been living together since then." Abimbola said
The police spokesperson stated that CP Frank Mba, the state Commissioner of Police, has ordered the transfer of the suspect to the State Criminal Investigation Departments for additional investigation and potential prosecution.
