Man rapes five-year-old daughter in Ogun


The operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a 28-year-old man, Adeyemi Babatunde, for allegedly having the carnal knowledge of his 5-year-old daughter.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, made the disclosure via a statement issued on Thursday, May 25.

Oyeyemi noted that the suspect was arrested on Monday, following a complaint lodged at Ijebu Mushin Divisional Headquarters by the mother of the victim.

He said the mother of the girl reported that her daughter had been complaining of pain whenever she wanted to urinate, while bathing her, or come in contact with her private part.

Oyeyemi said the woman 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.”

Oyeyemi added that the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Olanrewaju Oladimeji, had ordered that the suspect be transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Section of the State CID for further investigation and prosecution.
