The long arms of the law have finally caught up with a father, Taiwo Oyelabi, who is 50 years old, for having canal knowledge and impregnating his 21 year old daughter Nibilia Oyelabi.
Taiwo, a security guard who lives at No.15, Community Road Obadore Iyana-Iba in Igando Lagos had divorced the victim’s mother Nineteen years back.
After the divorce, it was gathered that the victim and her twin sister were taken by their aunty to Cote de Voire where they lived and had returned to Nigeria only seven months back.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal who paraded the suspect at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters in Ikeja disclosed that concerned members of the public had on April 16, 2018 reported the case to the Igando Police Station.
The case was however transferred to the Gender Section of the Command Headquarters on April 18, 2018 after preliminary investigations at the Division level.
The Commissioner said, ” The suspect divorced his wife when Nibilia and her twin sister were still in their infancy. As a result the twins were taken to the suspect’s younger sister.
” However, sometime in November 2017,the suspect took the now grown Nibilia from his sister and brought her home to live with him in his house. Since then, the suspect had been having inappropriate sexual liaison with his daughter.
” The result of this unholy alliance between father and daughter was pregnancy. Yes Taiwo impregnated his daughter.
” Investigation into the case revealed that the suspect is a security man but the strange part of his work was that whenever he was going to work, he goes with his daughter.
” This strange behaviour attracted the attention of the community and they reported to the police.”
In his confessional statement, the suspect who hails from Osun State had blamed the devil for his act.
He said, ” Yes I had sexual intercourse with my daughter but it was not my fault. She had been with my sister in Cote de Voire for nineteen years and had only returned to me seven months back after my sister complained of her inability to understand numbers.
” One night, while we were sleeping, she suddenly pounced on me and held me down on the bed. She started kissing and romancing me. I quickly pushed her away, slapped her and ever beat her up.
” some weeks after, she tried same again and this time, it became obvious to me that it was a spiritual problem. I took her to a white garment church for deliverance.
” After some month she reported same act and this time I couldn’t resist. I fell for her. I had sex with her five times before she told me she was pregnant.
” Because she also had a boyfriend called Azeez, I asked her who the father of the child was and she said Azeez was responsible. However I felt very bad for my actions.
” I attempted to take my life twice by drinking snipper and even jumping into the well, but unfortunately, my neighbours stopped me on both occasion. ”
On why he never remarried after devolving his wife, Taiwo said, ” I got into other relationships after my wife left me but it never worked. None of the women I dated wanted something permanent. ”
He also said Nibilia wasn’t a virgin when he had canal knowledge of her.
Speaking on why he was always taking Nibilia to work, Taiwo said she always complained that she cannot stay at home alone.
” This is the work of the devil and I regret my action, ” he said regrettably.
Edgal stated further that the suspect would be processed to the special sexual offences court in Ikeja.
