Police Arrest Two Terrorists, Recover 100 Cattle In Katsina

A father, Abdullah Abiodun was on Monday arraigned in Ikeja Sexual Offenses and Domestic Violence Court in Lagos for allegedly trying to defile his 12-year-old daughter.

A police Prosecution Witness Inspector, Glory Eyo, who led in evidence told the court that the minor was sexually harassed  by her father in the Badagry area of the state.

The witness also told Justice Abiola Soladoye that it was the defendant’s son, Usman (a younger brother to the victim), who caught his father in the act and raised the alarm.

She said, “Abiodun was at home with his daughter (the victim), his younger brother, and a visitor who came to visit.

“After the visitor left, Usman was chased out by his father, and the defendant told him to leave the house. When he left, Abiodun removed his daughter’s pants, held her neck, and tried to insert his penis in her private parts. It was in the process of doing it that the daughter screamed. Her brother heard the noise and entered the house where he saw his father on top of his sister.

“The defendant tried to chase Usman away and then the victim ran out and reported to their neighbour that her father was trying to have sexual intercourse with her.

“The neighbour then reported the case to the Baale, before it was reported to the Lagos State Police Badagry Division.”

Consequently, Justice Abiola Soladoye adjourned the case till December 16, 2023, for continuation of trial.
