A 39-year old man, Waisu Adedokun, has been arrested in Lagos for allegedly molesting his 16-year old daughter sexually.
The incident happened at Majiyagbe Street, Ipaja area of Lagos, where they reside.
It was gathered that the victim gets traumatised in the house whenever her mother was not around as she begins to entertain thoughts of having to struggle with her father, who desires to have sex with her.
She was said to have kept the traumatic experience away from her mother because she did not know how to say her own father always wants to sleep with her due to shame.
However, when she was unable to bear it any longer, she revealed to her School Counselor what she had been passing through and her fear of returning to their house after school each day.
The matter was then reported to the Police at Ipaja Division led by CSP Tokumbo Aboniwonda, who ordered the arrest of the father, Adedokun, and subsequently transferred the matter to the Gender Section of the Police Command for further investigation.
After investigation, the Police found him culpable and charged him before the Ogba Magistrates Court for the alleged offence but he pleaded not guilty before the Court.
The prosecutor, Supol Benson Emerhi, then asked the Court to give a date for hearing since he pleaded not guilty to enable the Police to prove that he actually committed the offence.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O Sule-Amzat, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.
He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail conditions and the matter was adjourned till 21st May, 2020.
The victim has absconded from home with her mother to an unknown place and she did not appear in Court when her father was arraigned.
