MEMBERS of O’odua Peoples Congress, OPC, have apprehended a 45-year-old bricklayer, Elijah Olusesi, who allegedly has been having carnal knowledge of his 14-year old daughter since she was seven, on laying ambush for him at Adeosun Street, Adiyan, a remote community in Ifo Local Government, Ogun State.
The Ekiti State-born bricklayer, whose wife (Shade) had fled to Adiyan when the purported act between her husband and their daughter started, was banished from the community, after he allegedly confessed to the crime after the OPC members took him round the community, and was banished from the community afterward.
Shade, who is also a nursery school teacher in the neighbourhood, when queried by the community, claimed to have reported the incident to her in-laws when she caught her husband in the act with their daughter, but was begged.
She told the community that her husband equally begged her and promised that he will not repeat the shameful act again, noting that to her surprise, she found out that whenever she was not at home, her husband would continue the act with their daughter.
Elijah’s dirty secret
According to her, Elijah was sleeping with both of them (mother and daughter) simultaneously without her knowledge. And when she found out, she stopped him from sleeping with her immediately, stressing that she had to run away with the girl from their former home to Adiyan in Ogun State, where her husband was able to trace them.
Elijah’s dirty secret was exposed when his daughter ran out naked in the middle of the night and was held by security men protecting the community. After interrogation, the 14-year old girl confessed she ran out naked because her father wanted to kill her with sex.
In her words: “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,” she reportedly told the security men.
