“He wanted to prevent his daughter from getting married so as to continue having sex with her”…Julius Ochim (Suspect)
The police in Ogun State have arrested a 45-year-old man, Julius Ochim, for allegedly impregnating his daughter.
Policemen from Sagamu Division nabbed Ochim after his daughter complained that he had been sleeping with her since she was nine.
The victim reportedly said the affair started in 2009, after the death of her mother, adding that she has a three-year-old daughter for her father.
It was gathered the suspect usually threatened the victim that there would be cultural implications if she failed to accede to his demand.
The police said the suspect admitted committing the offence, blaming it on the devil.
Police spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said the suspect confessed that he did not want his daughter to get married so that he could continue to sleep with her.
He said: “The suspect confessed to the crime, but blamed it on the devil. He admitted sleeping with the girl since the death of his wife and that he started having problem with her when she began to go out with a man whom she said she wanted to get married to.
“The suspect said he wanted to prevent his daughter from getting married so as to continue having sex with her.
“Police Commissioner Ahmed Iliyasu has directed that the suspect be transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for investigation and prosecution.”
