She also revealed that her father impregnated her three times, of which he took her to a nurse where those pregnancies were aborted. After the third abortion, the pastor took her for family planning to avoid getting pregnant again.
After realizing that her situation was not getting better, She immediately ran away from the house and reported to an NGO ‘Advocacy For Children And Vulnerable Persons Network’.
It was the NGO that took her to Owode-Egbado police station to complain.
Upon the report, the DPO Owode-Egbado division, SP Olabisi Elebute led her detectives to the pastor’s house where he was immediately arrested.
While being interrogated, the pastor confessed to raping his daughter numerous times.
Following his confession, the Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to anti human trafficking and child labor unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
