For allegedly defiling his 5 years old biological daughter (name withheld), operatives of Ogun State Police Command on the 22nd of May, 2023, have arrested a 28 years old man, Adeyemi Babatunde.
He was arrested following a complaint lodged at Ijebu Mushin Divisional Headquarters by the mother of the victim.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Police Command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi. It was made available to Security Watch Africa (SWA).
The mother had reported that she noticed her daughter has been complaining of “pain whenever she wants to urinate as well as whenever she is bathing her and she touch her private part.”
Having noticed this, the statement said, she pressurized the little girl to tell her what happened to her private part.
“It was then the victim informed her that her father laid her on the bed and inserted her manhood into her private part when the mother was not at home.
“Upon the report, the DPO, Ijebu Mushin Division, CSP Simire Hillary, quickly detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was eventually arrested,” it stated.
On interrogation, the suspect, according to the statement, confessed to the commission of the crime but claimed not to know what comes over him as at that time.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has “ordered that the suspect be transferred to Anti Human Trafficking and Child Labour section of the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and prosecution.”
