The Lagos state police command have arrested a 40-year-old man, Gbenga Taiwo, for allegedly defiling his 15-year-old daughter at Baruwa, Ipaja area of the state.

The suspect, who is a widower, has reportedly been raping his daughter since she was 13.

The Coordinator of Advocates for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network, Ebenezer Omejalile, who has been working on the case disclosed that the victim reported her father to the landlord.

Omejalile disclosed that the landlord talked to the suspect to stop the crime but he refused to stop.

He said, “The girl said she had been constantly abused by her father since she was 13. He is about 40-years-old and a retired electricity worker. Before the intervention of the girl’s maternal uncle, one Mr Alagba, the girl got tired of the wickedness of her father and informed their landlord who confronted the father to stop the evil act and he let him know the consequence of his action.

“But the suspect turned a deaf ear to it and kept doing it to the extent that whenever he was on night duty, he went to the office with girl to keep having her to his satisfaction. The man claimed that he saw some pictures in his daughter’s phone and suspected that she was wayward. He said he did not have sex with her but only used his finger to check if she is a virgin or not.”

Taiwo’s family members claim he has a history of mental illness and had been checked into a private rehabilitation center in Ise Oluwa Hospital in Abeokuta, Ogun State in 2018.

The spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, while confirming his arrest disclosed tests will be carried out on the suspect to determine his mental state.
