A father has been arrested for allegedly defiling his three daughters and a 10-year-old niece of his neighbor in Ogun State.
Kayode Adeniyi was arrested after a report lodged at the Agbado Divisional Headquarters of police by the aunt of the 10-year-old victim.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said that the accused, who lives at No. 12 Abere-Ifa Street, Ijoko, had also allegedly abused his own three biological underage daughters sexually.
According to police, Adeniyi forcefully dragged the victim into the room, covered her mouth with a pillow and had sexual intercourse with her.
According to Oyeyemi, the victim had gone to the accused person’s apartment to ask if his daughter mistakenly removed the clothes she spread outside.
“The victim explained that the suspect threatened to kill her with a knife if she made a noise,’’ the PPRO said.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to forcefully having carnal knowledge of the victim; he also admitted that he threatened the victim with a knife and that was why she couldn’t make a noise until he had satisfied his sexual urge.
“Further investigation into the past activities of the suspect revealed that he had being sexually abusing his three underage daughters before now, which he also did not deny.
“The victim has been taken to the General Hospital for medical examination and treatment.”
