Father Arrested For Allegedly Raping Daughter In Osun


Father Arrested For Allegedly Raping Daughter In OsunPolice in Osun State has arrested a man identified as Kazeem Olapade for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his 13-year-old daughter.

According to DailyPost, the suspect allegedly began the unlawful act during COVID-19 lockdown ordered by the Federal Government last year.

Kazeem’s wife, Mrs Basirat Ismail reported the suspected incest to a Non-Governmental Organisation, Monsurat Ajoke Foundation and headquarters of Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Osogbo.

The matter was brought to the notice of Osun Ministry of Children, Women and Social Affairs last week, according to Principal Social Welfare Officer in charge of the ministry in Ede Zone, Mrs Dorcas Lawrence.

Lawrence expressed that the case was later reported at State Criminal Investigation Department by the ministry before the suspect was arrested.

The victim’s mother had married the suspect in 2006 before their separation in 2009. Basirat married another man afterwards but left her two daughters in the custody of their father (Olapade) after their separation.

Basirat visited her daughters at the house of her estranged husband in Ido-Osun in February and discovered that her younger daughter, aged 13, was not walking properly.

She was said to have queried her before her elder daughter revealed that their father had been molesting her sexually since the COVID-19 lockdown began.

Olapade was later arrested by the Police in his house at Ido-Osun, Egbedore Local Government Area of the state.

Meanwhile, the state government, through its Commissioner for Women, Children and Social Affairs, Barr. Olubukola Olaboopo has affirmed that no convicted rapist would go unpunished and they would face the full wrath of the law.
