Bus Driver Rapes 2 Daughters For 2 Years
A 35-year old bus driver, Adewale Adeleke has been arrested by the police for defiling his two daughters. The little girls alleged that their father has been having sex with them for two years.
The incident occurred in Ikotun, Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos, southwest Nigeria.
Adeleke was arrested and detained at the Ikotun Police Station over the act.
His two daughters, who were in tears, confessed that their father had been sleeping with them since 2011 without the knowledge of their mother who separated from their father last year.
The girls are 13 and 10 years old. The eldest of them (name withheld) alleged that their father started sleeping with her when she was 11 years and her sibling when she was eight years old and that it was her father who deflowered her.
“Our father sleeps with us frequently. The first time he slept with me, I saw blood coming out of my private part and he used singlet to clean me up,” she alleged.
The two girls are now under police protection while their father will be arraigned at the Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court later today by the police.
The act was exposed when the Vice Chairman, Freelance Broadcast Association of Nigeria, Lagos State chapter, Demola Olota, Mrs Esther Ogwu of the Esther Child Rights Foundation and Mrs Mary Olasupo of the Compassionate Women arrested the alleged culprit and handed him over to the police.
It was gathered that Adeleke allegedly admitted that he had been defiling his daughters since 2011 and that he should be forgiven.
He was quoted as saying that the devil pushed him to have sex with them and that whenever he felt the urge for sex, he defiled his daughters.
Mother of the children, Kemi Adeleke, who left her husband last year to Ibadan, Oyo State was shattered when the news that her estranged husband had been sleeping with their children was broken to her, saying she could not eat for two days.
Kemi said she left her husband because he was an irresponsible man.
She said she is the one that feeds the family and even on top of that she gets seriously beaten up by her husband.
According to her, when she left for Ibadan, she left the children with her mother but her husband went there to bring them back home.
Executive Director, Esther Child Rights Foundation, Mrs. Esther Ogwu, described the man as wicked for defiling his two girls for two years, saying that her foundation would ensure that justice is done in the matter.
She stated that when she interviewed Adeleke at the police station, he admitted to the act, adding that the foundation was trying to see if the children’s mother could take custody of the children when she arrives from Ibadan
When contacted, Lagos State Police Command, Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Ngozi Braide confirmed the arrest of the suspect, saying that he would be arraigned in court soon.
