A 49-year-old Ode Remo, Ogun State father, Amoda Bola, has been arrested by the Police on Sunday for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his 14-year-old daughter and receiving payment from five men he invited to have sex with the daughter.
The Ogun State Police Command on Sunday said Amoda also allegedly impregnated his daughter.
SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, in a statement, said Amoda was arrested following a complaint received from his daughter at the Ode Remo Police Station.
Oyeyemi said the daughter alleged that her father, whom she had been living with for some years, had been having carnal knowledge of her.
He stated that the confession of the suspect during interrogation led to the arrest of five others, who had slept with the victim at different times on the invitation of the father.
“The suspects are Ahmed Ogunkoya; Muyiwa Adeoye; David Solaja; Emmanuel Olusanya, and Joshua Olaniran. All the suspects have confessed having carnal knowledge of the 14-year-old girl and paid money to the father.
“The victim, whose mother had separated from the father years back, had been living with her father, who practically turned her into a commercial prostitute. She has been taken to a state hospital in Ishara-Remo, where it was confirmed that she is pregnant.
“The victim has insisted that her father is responsible for the pregnancy being the only person who slept with her within the period she got pregnant,” Oyeyemi stated.
Oyeyemi said the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Anti Humans Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the state Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation and possible prosecution.
