A 49-year-elderly man, Ubong Williams Akpan, has allegedly defiled his 12-year-old little girl in Ogun State, saying his wife was not any more appealing and attractive to him.
Akpan was arrested on April 2 by the police following a report logged at Itele Ota divisional headquarters by the victim.
The young girl had reported at the police headquarters that her dad had been abusing her sexually since when she was seven years.
The Ogun State police spoke person, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed on Monday that the young lady uncovered that “this has been continuing for as far back as five years, and when she can presently don’t bear it, she decided to complain to the police.”
Upon the report, the DPO of the Itele-Ota division, CSP Monday Unoegbe, was said to have sent his investigators to the scene, where the suspect was immediately captured.
“On interrogation, he admitted to the commission of the crime, claiming that his wife is appearing too old, and she is no longer looking attractive to him,” Oyeyemi said.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the family support unit of the Ota area command for further investigation and prosecution, adding that the victim is being taken to the hospital for treatment.
