On August 17, 2022, a 49-year-old man, Amoda Bola, was apprehended by men of the Ogun state Police command for allegedly impregnating his 14-year-old biological daughter (name withheld).
The suspect, a resident of Idi Oro street, Ode Remo was arrested following a complaint received from the victim, who reported at Ode Remo divisional headquarters that her father with whom she has been living for some years now has been having carnal knowledge of her.
She stated further that her father has also been inviting men to the house to have sex with her after which the men will pay him money.
Upon the report, the DPO Ode Remo division, CSP Olayemi Fasogbon detailed his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.
During the interrogation, the suspect, who first denied the allegations later confessed when the victim confronted him. His confession led to the arrest of five others who have slept with the victim at different times at the invitation of the father.
The other suspects are; Ahmed Ogunkoya 30yrs, Muyiwa Adeoye 48yrs, David Sunday Solaja 69yrs, Emmanuel Olusanya 50yrs and Joshua Olaniran 50yrs.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said all the suspects have confessed to having carnal knowledge of the 14-year-old girl and paid money to the father. He said the victim, whose mother had separated from the father years back, said she was practically turned into a prostitute by her father.
Oyeymi said, ”She has been taken to state hospital Isara Remo where it was confirmed that she is pregnant.
The victim has insisted that it was her father who is responsible for the pregnancy and was the only person who slept with her during the period she got pregnant.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the anti-human trafficking and child labor unit of the state Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation and possible prosecution”.
