Ogun: 71-year-old landlord impregnates tenant’s daughter

Men of the Ajuwon Divisional Police Headquarters, Ogun state, have arrested a landlord simply identified as Adesina, for allegedly impregnating his tenant’s daughter.

The man was said to have defiled the 14-year-old girl at Akegbeyale Street in Ifesowapo Akute, Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, resulting in pregnancy.

Ogun police spokesperson, Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident, on Thursday, saying the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.

It was gathered that the assault and rape occurred in a shared bathroom when the girl made her way to take a shower. Few minutes after the teenager entered, the landlord barged into the same bathroom, where he allegedly had sexual intercourse with the minor.

He was reportedly caught in the act by some residents, leading to his arrest. Also, according to sources, the father took the minor to the hospital for medical examination, it was discovered that she was already pregnant.

Odutola said; “The landlord has been arrested and detained. The father reported that he was caught defiling his 14-year-old daughter in their bathroom in the morning. The teenager was taken to Tamara Hospital in Akute for a medical examination.

“However, the medical report further showed that that wasn’t a first-time act because the test showed that the teenager was already six weeks pregnant. The state CID in Eleweran will soon take up the matter for further investigation.”
