Man, 35, allegedly defiles ex-lover’s daughter in Ogun


Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Ogun State Command, have arrested a 35-year-old man, Odewale Akinleye, for allegedly defiling the 16-year-old daughter of his former lover.

Akinleye was paraded at the Command’s headquarters in Abeokuta on Thursday.

Spokesperson of the Command, Dyke Ogbonnaya, told newsmen that the suspect was arrested following a report at the Anti- Human Trafficking, Irregular Migration and Gender Unit.

He said the suspect was arrested around the Ofada/ Mokoliki area of the state.

“We got to know about the matter through the family members of the victim and our men went after the suspect, got hold of him and brought him to our division, and on investigation he confessed to the crime and he would be charged to court.”

The NSCDC publicist, however, cautioned parents to exercise caution when interacting with men when their female children are within the environment.

Speaking with newsmen, the suspect admitted he committed the crime but insisted that he never had “sex with the girl forcefully”.

He further said, “ I can’t remember her age when I started sleeping with her but she will be 17 years old by December 14, this year. There was never a time we had sex that turned out to be forceful.”
