A 49-year-old man, Amoda Bola, has been arrested by the police in Ogun State for routinely sleeping with his underage daughter and impregnating her in the process.
Amoda, a resident of Idi Oro street, Ode Remo area of Ogun State, was arrested on August 17 after his 14-year-old pregnant daughter reported the steady incestuous act at Ode Remo divisional headquarters.
The girl told the police that she had been living with her father for some years and that he did not only make love to her often, but also invited five different men at different times to have sex with her after which they would pay him money.
The police spokesperson in Ogun State, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this to newsmen on Sunday, said the Divisional Police Officer for Ode Remo division, Olayemi Fasogbon, mobilised detectives and had the suspect arrested.
The police spokesperson added that Amoda’s confession led to the arrest of five others who had slept with the girl on the invitation of the father.
The other suspects are; Ahmed Ogunkoya, 30, Muyiwa Adeoye,48, David Sunday Solaja, 69, Emmanuel Olusanya, 50, and Joshua Olaniran, 50.
Oyeyemi explained that all the suspects had confessed to having slept with the girl and paid money to the father.
The victim, whose mother had separated from the father years back, was practically turned to a prostitute by her father.
She was taken to state hospital Isara Remo where it was confirmed that she is pregnant.
The victim insists her father is responsible for the pregnancy and that he was the only person who slept with her within the period she got pregnant.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole has ordered the transfer of the suspects to anti humans trafficking and child labour unit of the state Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation and possible prosecution.
