Devil pushed me – Man who slept with 13-year-old daughter
Sikiru Odejide, who was arrested by the men of the Ogun State Police Command for sleeping with his 13-yer-old daughter has blamed his action on the devil.
Odejide’s claim was disclosed by the Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, while addressing newsmen.
The Command’s spokesperson disclosed that the arrest of the 41-year-old was as a result of a complaint from the victim’s mother, who has been separated from the suspect.
Oyeyemi said the victim’s mother had reported at the Sango Police Station that her daughter came to her house at Ijeshatedo area of Lagos State to inform her that her father has been sleeping with her since December 2016.
The Command’s spokesperson quoted the victim’s mother as saying her daughter said the 41-year-old threatened to kill her if she dares tells anybody about it.
Oyeyemi said, “She further complained to her mother that she could no longer bear the frequent sexual assault from her father, hence she decided to inform her mother.
“The DPO of Sango Police Station, SP Akinsola Ogunwale, detailed detectives to effect the arrest of the randy father, who lives in Onihale area of Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
“The suspect, on interrogation owned up to the crime, but attributed it to the devil’s handiwork.”
Also, the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered that Odejide be transferred to anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
“The CP equally directed that the victim be taken to hospital for proper medical attention,” Oyeyemi said.
