Ogun State Police Command has arrested a village head (Baale), Rasheed Sholabi of Oose Agbedu Ajibawo, in Owode-Yewa, for allegedly having unlawful carnal knowledge of his 15-year-old biological daughter.

The incest has affected the daughter who now finds it difficult to control her urinary system.

The victim reportedly told the police that she lost her mother when she was barely two years old.

On interrogation, the suspect first denied the allegation, but when he was confronted by the victim and one of his ex-wives, who corroborated the victim’s statement.

The ex-wife had informed the police that she caught the village head red-handed while having sex with his daughter, saying that was the reason she left him.

After nemesis caught up with him, the suspect fainted and was taken to the hospital for resuscitation.
