A 12-year-old girl has accused her 49-year-old father, Ubong Akpan, of sleeping with her since she was seven.
The victim said the sexual molestation had been going on for the past five years, and when she could no longer bear it, she decided to complain to the police.
Akpan was arrested following a report lodged at the Itele Ota Divisional Police Headquarters by the victim, who reported that her father was unlawfully having carnal knowledge of her.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in Abeokuta on Monday.

Oyeyemi said, “Upon the report, the DPO, Itele-Ota Division, CSP Monday Unoegbe, detailed his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, he confessed to the crime and claimed that his wife was appearing too old and no longer looking attractive to him.”
The PPRO said the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, had ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the Family Support Unit of the Ota Area Command for further investigation and prosecution.
Oyeyemi added that the commissioner also directed that the victim be taken to the general hospital for proper medical treatment.
