On Sunday, the Ogun State Police Command said it arrested on Amoda Bola, a 49-year-old father who was reported to have had carnal knowledge with his daughter thereby impregnating her.
Additionally, Bola was accused of paying unidentified males to defile his daughter at his home and inviting them over to do so.
The suspect was detained as a result of a complaint made by his daughter, according to a statement released on Sunday by the state police public relations officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi.
The victim, who had been living with her father for a while, allegedly disclosed to the Ode Remo Police Station that he had been having sex with her.
However, Oyeyemi disclosed that the confession of the suspect during questioning resulted in the arrest of five additional people who had slept with the victim at the father’s request at various periods.
The PPRO said, “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 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.
