“I ran out when my father wanted to kill me with sex. He has been having sexual intercourse with me since I was seven years old and my mother knew about it. My mother and I ran away from him to come and hide here but we don’t know how he was able to trace us down here.”
A 45-year old bricklayer, Elijah Olusesi who has been having sex with his 14-year old daughter (name withheld) since she was seven, has been apprehended by members of OPC.
He was caught by the OPC members who had laid ambush for him at Adeosun Street, Adiyan, a remote community in Ifo Local Government, Ogun State, Southwest Nigeria. His wife, Shade, had fled to Adiyan when the man started sleeping with the little girl.
It was learnt that he evaded arrest for 15 days before his eventual arrest in the midnight operation.
The shameless man was exposed when the sexually assaulted girl ran out of their home naked in the middle of the night and was held by the security men guarding the community.
Upon interrogation by the security men, the girl told them that she ran out naked because her father wanted to kill her with sex, adding that she could no longer bear his sexual assault on her. Shade Olusesi, Eljah’s wife who is also a nursery school teacher in the neighbourhood, when queried by the community, said that when she caught her husband in the act with their daughter and reported the incident to her in-laws, they begged her.
She said that her husband equally begged her and promised that he will not repeat the shameful act again, but to her surprise, Elijah still continued the act with their daughter whenever she is not at home.She added that her husband was sleeping with both of them simultaneously without her knowledge.
Shade said that she stopped him from sleeping with her immediately she discovered he was having carnal knowledge of their daughter, adding that she had to run away with the girl from their former home to Adiyan in Ogun State.
She told the community that she did not know how her husband was able to trace them down to the remote village.
Elijah and his family have subsequently been banished from the community after he confessed to engaging in the despicable act with his daughter.
