“My father is responsible for my pregnancy, not my boy friend.” 19-year-old girl confesses
According to the report received by the police, the victim, who is 5 months pregnant, was invited to the station, where she confided in the police that, though Michael Idowu, her boy friend, slept with her in December 2022, her father had been having affectionate relations with her before the stated date when her boy friend had sex with her.
The mother of Michael Idowu, Oluwatoyin, reported that her son was accused of impregnating the victim, stressing that she had properly interrogated him and discovered that the victim was not telling the truth.
She further stated that her father has been sleeping with her since February 2022 and threatened to kill her if she informed anybody about it.
The police spokesman noted that the suspect was arrested and confessed to the crime.
He added that the Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, has directed that the suspect be transferred to state criminal investigation departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
Abimbola said, “According to the victim, when it was discovered that she was pregnant, her father asked her to lie and accuse Michael Idowu of being responsible for the pregnancy. Upon her confession, the DPO of Mowe Division, SP Folake Afeniforo, detailed detectives to go after the randy father, and he was subsequently arrested. On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect, who had long been separated from the victim’s mother, took custody of the girl when her mother remarried, and they have been living together since then.”
