The security man who is 50 years old got his daughter who is 21 years old impregnated during the course of the incest. Report has it that Oyelabi had divorced his wife when his daughter was just two years.
The couple, before divorce gave birth to a set of twins together which included the victim. Oyelabi’s younger sister took custody of the twins and later travelled to Cote D’Ivoire with them, Naija News understands.
The victim was reported to have relocated to Nigeria about seven months ago to live with her father when the assault started. It was said that some residents of Community Road, Obadore, where the suspect and his daughter lived, got wind of the incest and reported to the police.
Imohimi Edgal, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, who paraded Oyelabi on Monday at the command headquarters in Ikeja, said the information gotten was credible after an undercover investigation was carried out.
The CP said people became suspicious of Oyelabi as he always took his daughter along whenever he was going for his night work.
Edgal said, “This strange behaviour attracted the attention of the community and they reported the case at the Igando Police Station on April 16, 2018.”
“After a preliminary investigation at the division, the matter was transferred to the Gender Section of the state command on April 18 for in-depth investigation.”
“The suspect divorced his wife when the twins were still infants. The twins were taken to the suspect’s younger sister. However, sometime in November 2017, the suspect took the now grown daughter from his sister and brought her home to live with him.”
“The suspect had been having sex with his daughter and the result of this unholy alliance is pregnancy. The suspect blamed the devil for his act.”
Edgal added that the suspect would be charged to the Special Court for Sexual Offences in Ikeja.
Oyelabi, while confessing to the crime, testified to have slept with his daughter five times.
The native of Ejigbo, Osun State, said it was the daughter who tempted him into the act, adding that he was not responsible for the pregnancy.
He said, “Her mother and I separated when she and her twin sister were two years old. My sister took them to Cote D’Ivoire. Seven months ago, my sister sent her back to Nigeria.
“She started living with me. One day, I was relaxing at home when she suddenly grabbed me and forcefully kissed me. I tried to beat her, but I did not know what came over me; I had sex with her.
“I went to a church and explained what happened to a pastor. He said some evil persons were after us and that I had to be prayerful. I slept with her five times. It was my landlord who reported the case to the police.
“I didn’t meet her as a virgin. She told me that she had a boyfriend who also slept with her. She said it was the boyfriend that impregnated her.”
