Man Arrested in Ilorin For Raping 18-year-old Biological Daughter

A 47- year-old security guard, Jacob Obomerelu,
has been arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Kwara State Command, for allegedly having canal knowledge of his 18-year-old biological daughter, Modupe Jacob.

According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the NSCDC in the state, Babawale Afolabi, the incident occured at the suspect’s gatehouse at 24, Awolowo Street, Tanke Ilorin, which also serves as his residence on Monday, December 6, 2021.

“On Tuesday, December 7, 2021, we were tipped off by one Alhaja Mariam Bello, who claimed that Modupe, her adopted daughter, was raped by her biological father, adding that the victim used to live with her at her Isale Gaa Akanbi residence in the Ilorin metropolis but moved out to stay with her dad after a little misunderstanding between her and the victim”.

The Nigerian Tribune gathered that Modupe had a little misunderstanding with Alhaja, who adopted her in 2017 when her mother separated from Jacob and had since been staying with the woman.

It was also learnt that the victim joined her father in the gatehouse of where he was working as a security guard, just as it was gathered that the incident occured during the night of her first stay with her father.

In her statement, Modupe narrated how she begged her father not to rape her, saying that all her plea fell on her father’s deaf ear. She said that her father later gave her N1,000 to buy drugs to flush her system.

In his confessional statement, Jacob, who hails from Edo State, and the father of four children, admitted to having committed the crime but blamed it on the devil, saying that he was not conscious that he was doing it.

Meanwhile, the command’s PRO said that the state’s commandant, Iskilu Ayinla Makinde, has directed a further investigation into the matter, adding that the suspect would be charged to court after completion of the investigations.
