According to the Ogun State Police Command, Idowu Shittu, a 35-year-old man, has been detained for reportedly defiling his wife’s cousin at the Hallelujah area in Ifo.
The police spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, verified this to reporters in Ota, Ogun, on Sunday.
Mr. Oyeyemi claims that the suspect was apprehended after his wife filed a report with the Ifo Divisional Headquarter stating that her husband had been forcibly having sex with her 11-year-old cousin (name withheld) who has been living with them for the past three years.
She went on to claim that when she couldn’t take it any longer, her cousin decided to inform her about her spouse.
The little girl, who has been without a mother since she was a baby, has been bearing it, according to the wife, because she has nowhere else to go if her aunt’s husband sends her away.
According to the small girl, when her aunt’s husband wants his way with her, he threatens her.
Lanre Bankole, the Commissioner of Police, has ordered the injured to be sent to the hospital for treatment.
CP Bankole further ordered that the suspect be promptly sent to the anti-human trafficking and child labor unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence agency for further inquiry and prosecution.
