According to Vanguard Newspaper, a 56 year old man named Taiwo Oluboyodewho claims to be a prophet, has been arrested for allegedly impregnating his 16-year-old daughter (name witheld). Oluboyode, claims that he was tempted by the devil and that was why he carried out the evil act.
However, members of the community are of the opinion that he committed this atrocity because he believed he could ‘renew his spiritual power’.
Reports, revealed that the suspect lived alone with his daughter, after his wife allegedly abandoned him. She insisted on going with her daughter, but Oluboyode, refused stating that he would need her to help in running errands.
A source close to the family disclosed that the suspect refused to remarry because he preferred sleeping with his daughter. Information gathered further revealed that the victim had stopped school after getting pregnant because her father had told her to remain indoors, in order not to arouse any form of suspicion.
He allegedly gave her a concoction to drink to terminate the pregnancy but the attempt was unsucessful.
Meanwhile, a neighbour, who sighted the girl with a protruded belly alerted authorities who came to arrest the suspect.
Detectives at Ala Police Station in Akure, confirmed the arrest and disclosed that the suspect will soon be prosecuted.
