A 28-year-old man, Adeyemi Babatunde, has been arrested by men of Ogun Police command for defiling his five-year-old daughter.
The suspect, according to a press statement by the command’s spokesperson, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, was arrested following a complaint lodged at Ijebu Mushin divisional headquarters by the mother of the victim.
Oyeyemi noted that the complainant said she noticed her daughter has been complaining of pain whenever she wants to urinate as well as whenever she is bathing her and she touches her private part.
Having noticed this, she pressurised the little girl to tell her what happened to her private part.
It was then the victim informed that her father laid her on the bed and inserted her manhood into her private part when the mother was not at home.
“Upon the report, the DPO Ijebu Mushin division, CSP Simire Hillary, quickly detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was eventually arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to commiting the crime but claimed not to know what came over him as at that time”, the statement reads.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to anti-human trafficking and child labour section of the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and prosecution.
