Devil pushed me to impregnate my daughter – Man confesses in Ogun

A 45-year-old man has blamed the devil after impregnating his 19-year-old daughter in Ogun.

Police said the suspect confessed to the crime, saying the devil used him.

The man, identified as Olaoluwa Jimoh, was arrested after the daughter reported the case at the Ode Remo Police Station.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police spokesman, revealed that the daughter had been living with her father for two years, “but sometimes in June 2021, her father forcefully had sex with her.”

According to Oyeyemi, the victim claimed to have been “raped severally by her father,” who she said threatened to kill her should she tell anybody.

“The 19-year-old victim informed the police that her mother had separated from the father a long time ago and that she has been living with her mother until about two years ago when the suspect asked her to come and be living with him,” he said.

Oyeyemi said the teenage girl decided to report the case at the police station after discovering she was pregnant.

Having reported the matter, the DPO of the Ode Remo division, CSP Fasogbon Olayemi, was said to have wasted no time mobilising detectives to go after the suspect, who was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime but claimed that the devil used him,” Oyeyemi explained.

Meanwhile, the suspect would be transferred to State CIID, Eleweran, Abeokuta as ordered by the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, for further investigation.
