How police arrested pastor 'who raped daughter, aborted her pregnancy three times'/ The suspect

The Ogun State police command has arrested a self-acclaimed pastor of Christ Apostolic Church, Ogo-oluwa parish, Oluwafemi Oyebola for allegedly raping his daughter for five years. 

The clergyman reportedly impregnated the teenager and was said to have carried out three abortions on her.

Spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement, said the 44-year-old was arrested after his daughter lodged a complaint against him at Owode-Egbado divisional police headquarters.

The teenager alleged that her father had been raping her since 2015 when she turned 19 — shortly after the demise of her mother.

“The victim further reported that she got pregnant for her father three times after which her father took her to a nurse where those pregnancies were aborted,” the statement read.

“After the third abortion, the suspect did family planning for her so she would not get pregnant again.”

The police spokesman, explained that the victim would later run away from home and narrated her ordeal to Advocacy for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network, a non-governmental organisation, who brought her to the station to report her father.

“Consequent upon which she was taken to the Owode-Egbado Police Station to complain,” the statement added.

“After the report, the DPO Owode-Egbado division, SP Olabisi Elebute, led her detectives to the pastor’s house where he was promptly arrested.

“During interrogation, the suspect made confessional statements that all his daughter said was nothing but the whole truth.”

Oyeyemi added that the State Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, had already ordered immediate transfer of the suspect to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
