A 50-year-old man has been arrested by the Osun State Police Command for allegedly raping his 13-year-old daughter.
The Osun State Commissioner of Police, Undie Adie, who vowed that the State command would not relent in ensuring that rapists were made to face the full wrath of the law, disclosed this.
The suspect, Mr. Adeleye, who lives at B50 Agbongbe Street in Ibokun, Obokun Local Government Area, Osun State told journalists that he was drunk when he raped his daughter.
“She is my daughter from my other wife that left me and I have had sex with her like twice under the influence of alcohol. But on the day I was arrested, I did not have sex with her. I punished her for refusing to cook as I instructed and she went out to tell neighbours that I was having sex with her.
“My wife at home had warned me that I should not allow my daughter access to my room to avoid temptation but I did not listen to her”, he said.
According to Adeleye, who said he is a farmer and a commercial motorcyclists, his daughter was staying with her mother’s relatives in Ibadan, Oyo State. He said that she relocated to Ibokun and she was learning tailoring.
Adie also urged parents of victims of rape to stop withdrawing cases against suspects due to persuasion from either community leaders or parents of victims.
He added that the Osun State Police Command would no longer tolerate any of such rape cases but ensure that perpetrators face the full wrath of the law.
