After impregnating his 19-year-old daughter in Ogun, a 45-year-old father accused the devil. The suspect admitted to the crime, saying he was duped by the devil, according to police.
After the daughter reported the matter to the Ode Remo Police Station, the guy, known as Olaoluwa Jimoh, was detained on Thursday.
The daughter had been living with her father for two years, according to Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police spokeswoman, “but sometime in June 2021, her father forcibly had intercourse with her.”
The woman claimed to have been “raped numerous times by her father,” who threatened to murder her if she told anybody, according to Oyeyemi.
“The 19-year-old victim informed the police that her mother had divorced her father a long time ago and that she had been living with her mother until the suspect invited her to come and live with him around two years ago,” he added.
After discovering she was pregnant, the adolescent girl decided to report the matter to the police station, according to Oyeyemi.
Following the complaint, CSP Fasogbon Olayemi, the DPO of Ode Remo division, was alleged to have lost no time in mobilizing detectives to track down the culprit, who was soon apprehended.
“During questioning, the suspect admitted to committing the murder but claimed that he was duped by the devil,” Oyeyemi said.
Meanwhile, as directed by the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, the suspect would be transported to the State CIID, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for further investigation.
