A father is in all kinds of trouble after he allegedly raped his 14-year-old step-daughter.
A civil servant with the Osun State Government whose name was given as Omoniyi, has been arrested by the state police command for allegedly raping his 14-year-old stepdaughter at the family's residence at the Meiran Alagbado area of the the state.
Police reports that Omoniyi was arrested by its officers from the Meiran Police Division after the teenager reported the matter to a neighbour who took her to a non-govermental organisation (NGO), Community Surveillance Patrol of Nigeria, who contacted the police.
An official of the NGO said:
“The 14-year-old girl’s case was reported to us as a matter of sexual abuse by her stepfather. We then informed the police.
Omoniyi is a civil servant in Osun State. There were text messages that the suspect allegedly sent to the girl, whenever he came to Lagos on the weekends. The girl claimed the suspect had been sleeping with her since 2014.”
The girl has been handed over to the Bimbo Odukoya Foundation, with the approval of the Lagos State Ministry of Youths and Social Development, where she is being taken care of.
