A 12-year-old girl has accused her 49-year-old father, Ubong  Akpan, of sleeping with her since she was seven.

The victim said the sexual molestation had been going on for the past five years, and when she could no longer bear it, she decided to complain to the police.

Akpan was arrested following a report lodged at the Itele Ota Divisional Police Headquarters by the victim, who reported that her father was unlawfully having carnal knowledge of her.

Abimbola Oyeyemi,  the  Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP made this known in Abeokuta on Monday.

The PPRO   said, “Upon the report, the DPO, Itele-Ota Division, CSP Monday Unoegbe, detailed his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, he confessed to the crime and claimed that his wife was appearing too old and no longer looking attractive to him.”

The PPRO said the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, had ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the Family Support Unit of the Ota Area Command for further investigation and prosecution.
