Operatives of Ogun State Police Command on March 24 arrested one 43-year-old Abiodun Oladapo for allegedly impregnating his 19-year-old daughter and asked her to claim that it was her boyfriend that impregnated her.
According to the command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, a Superintendent of Police, he was nabbed when one Oluwatoyin Idowu, reported that her son Michael Idowu was wrongly accused of impregnating the victim.
“Upon the report, the victim who is five months pregnant was invited, and when she got to the station, she confided in the police that though Michael Idowu slept with her in December 2022, it was her father Abiodun Oladapo who is responsible for her pregnancy.
“She alleged that her father had been sleeping with her since February 2022 with threat to kill her if she informed anybody about it. She claimed that it was his father that asked her to admit that it was Idowu that got her pregnant.
“Mr. Abiodun was arrested and during interrogation, he confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil. Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect who had long separated with the victim’s mother took custody of the girl when her mother remarried and they have been living together since then.”
