A fifty-year-old man, Ede Tyndale, who had been sleeping with his 19-year-old daughter, since she was 11 years old has been arrested by the police.
Tribune Online gathered that the suspect was forcing the victim to sleep with her since eight (8) years ago, whenever the mother was away.
The state PPRO, Bala Elkana in a statement, signed by him on Sunday confirmed the arrest of the suspect.
Elkana also said that Tyndale was arrested following a report by the mother of the victim, who reportedly noticed some changes in the teenager.
He said, “On 09/05/2020 at about 1430 hours, a 45years old woman (name withheld) reported at Ikotun Police Station that her husband, Ede Tyndale ‘m’ 50 years old of Kajola Street, Ikotun is committing incest with their 19years old daughter (name withheld).”
He added that: “Trouble started when the woman noticed some strange behaviours from her daughter and decided to find out why the sudden disrespect towards her father.”
“The survivor opened up to her mother that her father started having sexual intercourse with her when she was 11years old.”
Elkana also continued that “the father often threatened violence whenever she resisted him and that the father instilled so much fear in her that she found it difficult to report to anybody.”
The suspect was arrested by detectives from the Family Support Unit. He confessed to the commission of the crime.
According to the police, after a thorough investigation into the case, the suspect was on 11/5/2020, charged to Chief Magistrate Court ll Ogba on five-count charges of Incest, Rape, Sexual harassment, Defilement and Sexual assault.
