OGUN: 52-year-old man arrested for defiling his daughters, neighbours niece  


The long arm of the law has caught up with a 52-year-old man identified as Kayode Adeniyi, for allegedly defiling his three daughters and the 10-year-old niece of his neighbour.

The arrest of the suspect was confirmed in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who said that the suspect was arrested after he was reported to the police by his neighbour.

According to Oyeyemi, the suspect, who lives at No. 12 Abere-Ifa Street, Ijoko, in the Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state allegedly abused his three underage daughters before he was arrested for defiling the 10-year-old girl.

Oyeyemi said; “The aunt went to the station with the victim and reported that the incident happened when her niece went to the apartment of the suspect to ask if his daughter was the person who mistakenly removed the clothes she spread outside.

“The suspect forcefully dragged her into the room, covered her mouth with a pillow and had sexual intercourse with her.

“The victim explained that the suspect threatened to kill her with a knife if she made a noise.

“On the strength of the report, the DPO, Agbado Division, CSP Kehinde Kuranga, detailed his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to forcefully having carnal knowledge of the victim; he also admitted that he threatened the victim with a knife and that was why she couldn’t make a noise until he had satisfied his sexual urge.

“Further investigation into the past activities of the suspect revealed that he had been sexually abusing his three underage daughters before now, which he also did not deny.

“The victim has been taken to the General Hospital for medical examination and treatment,” the statement concluded.
