SWITZERLAND, JULY 07 – A 44-year-old Pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Ogo Oluwa parish, Oluwafemi Oyebola, has confessed to raping his biological daughter routinely after he was arrested by the police.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Tuesday in Abeokuta, said the pastor was arrested after his daughter made a complaint at the Owode-Egbado Divisional Headquarters.
The girl who lodged the complaint at the Owode-Egbado divisional headquarters disclosed that her father had been molesting her since 2015 when she was 19 years old and shortly after the demise of her mother.
She informed the police that she had been impregnated by her father three times and taken to a nurse to terminate the pregnancies.
Oyebola then procured family planning services for the victim to prevent further pregnancies.
“Having realised that her father was all out to ruin her life, she ran away from the house and reported to an NGO.
“The NGO, Advocacy for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network, took it upon itself to assist her in reporting the incident at the Owode-Egbado police station.
“Upon the report, the DPO Owode-Egbado division, SP Olabisi Elebute, led her detectives to the pastor’s house where he was arrested,” the statement read in part.
When interrogated, the pastor confessed, admitting to the accusations laid by his daughter.
The Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, has directed that the suspect be immediately transferred to the Anti-human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit for further investigation and prosecution.
