A father from Ijede, in Lagos, South-West Nigeria, has been alleged to have sodomized his two sons and raped his daughter. The suspect, Olusegun Adefemi, who is currently in police detention, was paraded before journalists on Monday.
Edgal Imohimi, the Commissioner of Police for the state, said Adefemi of No. 6 Ipakan Street, in Ijede Local Development Council Area, Ikorodu, defiled his three-year-old daughter, named Favour Adefemi.
Imohimi said Adefemi inflicted grievous injury on the minor’s private part due to forceful penetration. The incestuous father was also said to have penetrated his two sons’ anuses. The kids (sons) are Godspower Adefemi, 7, and Wisdom Adefemi, 5 years old.
Imohimi said the police got wind of Adefemi’s alleged crime through a neighbourhood watch official, Adekoya Sesan, who reported the matter. The police claimed the suspect always flogged the two boys with cane anytime they resisted him until they succumbed.
Moreover, Adefemi was said to have separated from his wife last year due to spousal abuse.
The police said he would be charged to court upon the completion of their investigation.
