A 43-year-old man, Abiodun Oladapo, has been arrested for reportedly impregnating his biological daughter.
He was arrested on Friday following a complaint lodged at the Mowe police division by one Oluwatoyin Idowu, who said her son Michael Idowu, had been wrongly accused as the one who impregnated the said 19-year-old girl.
The woman said she questioned her son and discovered the victim was not telling the truth.
The Ogun State police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the police had, upon the report, invited the five-month pregnant, adding that 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.”
According to Oyeyemi, the teenage girl stated that “her father had been sleeping with her since February 2022 with threat to kill her if she informed anybody about it.”
She admitted that it was her father who told her to lie against Michael Idowu as the one responsible for the unborn baby.
The DPO of Mowe division, SP Folake Afeniforo, had detailed his detectives to arrest the “randy father”.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil,” Oyeyemi said.
Oyeyemi added that the suspect, who had long separated from the victim’s mother, took custody of the girl when her mother remarried, and they have been living together since then.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Frank Mba, had directed that the suspect be transferred to the State police headquarters for further investigation at the CIID.
