The Police, in Ogun State, on Saturday, August 10, 2019, arrested one Emmanuel Ikhine, 52, for allegedly having forceful and unlawful carnal knowledge of his 18-year-old biological daughter
The suspect, who resides at No. 6, Iyaniwura Street, in the Joju area of Sango Ota, was arrested following a report by one Yemisi Ashade who came to the station with the victim and complained that she reported how her father was abusing her sexually whenever she was alone at home with a threat to deal with her if she dares tell anyone. She further stated that she could no longer bear the sexual assault hence she confided in her.
Upon the report, the DPO, Sango Ota, CSP Godwin Idehai, detailed his detectives to the scene where the randy father was promptly arrested.
On interrogation, he made a confessional statement that he had indeed been having carnal knowledge of his daughter for long; in fact, since he separated from his wife.
The victim who claimed to be the only girl among the three children of her father explained how the suspect had been sleeping with her whenever her two brothers were not around with a threat, but when she could not bear it any longer, she reported to their neighbour who brought her to the station. The victim was taken to the General Hospital where it was unfortunately confirmed that she’s already pregnant for her father!
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, has ordered for the immediate transfer of the suspect to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution, added DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, PPRO, Ogun State Police Command.
