The Baale of Oose Agbedu Ajibawo in Owode-Yewa, Ogun State, has been arrested for having unlawful carnal knowledge of his 15-year- old biological daughter.
The Baale was arrested following a report by the victim at Owode Egbado police station that her father had been having sex with her since she was 11- year-old, as a result of which she now finds it difficult to control her urinary system.
According to a statement issued by the Command’s Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect had been sexually abusing the victim since she was two years old and had barred her from seeing any relative of her deceased mother.
Oyeyemi said upon the report, the DPO Owode-Egbado, Olabisi Elebute quickly led her men to the palace where the Baale was promptly arrested.
On interrogation, Oyeyemi said the suspect initially denied the allegation, but when he was confronted by the victim and his ex-wife who corroborated the victim’s statement, he fainted and was taken to the hospital for resuscitation.
The statement said the ex-wife informed the police that she caught the baale red handed having sex with his daughter and that was the reason why she left him.
The victim has been taken to the Stella Obasanjo Motherless Babies Home for safety.
State Commissioner of Police, Edward A. Ajogun has ordered the transfer of the suspect to anti-human trafficking and child labor unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for in-depth investigation and diligent prosecution.
