The police command in Ogun says its operatives have arrested Adeyemi Babatunde, a 28-year-old, over the alleged rape of his daughter.

The police said the victim, whose name is withheld, is five years old.

In a statement on Thursday, Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun police spokesperson, said Babatunde was arrested after the victim’s mother reported the incident at the police station.

According to Oyeyemi, the victim complained to her mother of pains around her private part.


The victim’s mother said when she questioned her daughter, she narrated how her father allegedly molested her.

“It was then the victim informed her that her father laid her on the bed and inserted her manhood into her private part when the mother was not at home,” the statement reads.

“Upon the report, the DPO Ijebu Mushin division, CSP Simire Hillary, quickly detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was eventually arrested.


“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime but claimed not to know what came over him as at the time.

“Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to anti-human trafficking and child labour section of the state criminal investigation department (CID) for further investigation and prosecution.”
