According to the Ogun State Police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi was arrested on December 30 following a complaint lodged by the daughter at Obantoko divisional headquarters.
The victim had told the police that her father came to the shop where she is learning tailoring and pleaded with her mistress to permit her to come and fetch water for him at home.
Oyeyemi disclosed that the girl stated further that she went home to fetch water as requested by her father.
“But surprisingly, her father suddenly grabbed her and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her,” it was said.
On the strength of the report, the DPO of Obantoko division, CSP Sunday Opebiyi was said to have detailed his detectives to the man’s house and he was apprehended.
