A 16-year-old girl, Temitope Ewuoso, has accused her father, Kayode, of raping her.
The victim alleged that her father had continuously been demanding and forcing her to have sex inside his room in Solotan Estate, Laderin, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
According to the victim, the father began to demand sex immediately after her mother divorced him.
While reporting the incident to the operatives of the Ogun State Social Orientation and Safety Corps, who in turn took the case to the nearest police station, the father was arrested.
During the interrogation, the suspect claimed that the daughter was lying against him because he rebuked her for her waywardness and promiscuity.
“She is lying. She is using this as a ploy to cover up her promiscuity, which I scolded her for,” the father was quoted telling the police operatives.
Meanwhile, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, who confirmed the incident, told our correspondent that the investigation was ongoing.
The father has been arrested. We have begun a preliminary investigation into the allegation. Both parties will be taken to the State CID for discreet investigation,” Odutola stated via a WhatsApp message on Tuesday.
