A 45-year-old man who married three wives has been arrested for raping one of his daughters on several occasions in Ondo State.
According to reports, Idowu Owolabi who had married as many as three wives but currently lives without one, has taken pleasure in sleeping with his own biological daughter.
The 21-year-old year girl (name withheld), narrated her ordeal to the police after he was arrested on Monday, January 28, 2019, following a complaint lodged at the Oja-Odan Police Division by the victim. She alleged that her father has turned her into an instrument of sex.
According to her, the trauma began sometime in Mach, 2018 when she went with her randy father to a farm in Fagboun Village, where her father forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.
The man had, ever since then, taken it as his prime domestic duty to sleep with her, adding that she would have long cried out but was afraid he might kill her, having severally warned her to keep it to herself or lose her life.
Speaking on the ugly incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said:
“Upon the complaint, the DPO of Oja-Odan Police Division, CSP Olayemi Jacob, led his detectives to the suspect’s residence in Papa Olosun area of Oja-Odan where he was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect who was said to had previously married to three different women, confessed to the commission of the crime but blamed it all on devil.”
Oyeyemi stated, adding that, embittered by the incestuous act, the state Commissioner of Police, Cp Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Abeokuta, for proper investigation and possible prosecution of the suspect.
