A monarch in Ogun state, Rasheed Sholabi has landed in police net after his daughter reported to the police that her father has been sexually assaulting her for four years.
Operatives of the state police command arrested Sholabi, for allegedly defiling his 15 -year- old daughter.
The spokesperson of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who made this known to newsmen, Thursday, said the victim had gone to the Owode Egbado police station to report that her father had been having sex with her since she was 11.
Abimbola said the victim said she lost her mother when she was barely two and had to live with her father.
She told the police that her father’s repeated sexual intercourse with her has affected her private part, making it difficult to control her urinary system.
The statement said the Divisional Police Officer for Owode-Egbado, Olabisi Elebute, led detectives to the traditional ruler’s palace and arrested him.
The monarch who initially denied the allegation, fainted later when confronted by the victim and one of his ex-wife, who corroborated the victim’s ordeal. The ex-wife told the police that she left the marriage with the monarch after she caught him in the act.
According to Abimbola, the monarch has since been resuscitated and is helping with the investigation.
