15-Year Old Girl Reports Father To Police For Raping Her – A 15-year old girl has accused her father of taking her virginity and constantly raping her.
The victim had fled her father’s house in Badagry to a family relative’s in Ikotun after he went for a prayer meeting. The man, whose name is Timothy Idowu, was said to have raped his daughter while his daughter was bed-ridden.
A source close to the incident told Punch: “The victim fled to a relative, who is her aunt in the Ikotun area. The aunt thereafter contacted our organisation. The case got to my attention last week. I reported the case at the police station in Badagry immediately and the man was arrested.
“The victim said she could not bear it anymore as her father had raped her several times in the year. She said anytime the family slept at night, the father would sneak into her room and rape her. He would thereafter warn her not to tell anyone. She claimed the father started from the beginning of the year.”
In her statement to the police, the victim said: “I am 15 years old. I am in Senior Secondary Class 2. My father deflowered me several months ago, and he had been raping me since then. Whenever he did it, he would clean up the mess and warn me not to tell anybody.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed Idowu’s arrest, adding: “Investigation is still ongoing.”
