A fifty-two-year-old man identified as Mr. Folorunso Oluwaseun who is a father of five children, was recently arraigned in court for allegedly defiling his daughter.
Oluwaseun started having issues with his wife, resulting in constant quarrels and shouting matches. According to him, he felt his wife was tired of his being poor.
In 2012, his wife walked out of their matrimonial home, leaving him with five children to fend for.
It was not too long after she left that Oluwaseun started having sex with his daughter. He allegedly started by sucking her breasts. He told the girl that he was sucking the breasts in order to make them to become as big and round as those of her mates. He graduated from sucking her boobs, to having sex with her. He told the girl that the sperm would make her to become as fat as her friends.
He started having sex with his daughter when she was just 12 years old and was caught right in the act by his estranged wife when the girl was 17.
When the matter was taken to an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, Lagos State, Oluwaseun said that he was framed by his wife and his in-laws.
There were further gasps of outrage when he vehemently denied ever having sex with his daughter but admitted having an inappropriate relationship with the girl. “I only sucked my daughter’s breasts. I didn’t have sex with her!” he said.
The man would later change his narrative to claim that police asked him to admit sucking his daughter’s breasts when he had never done that. Oluwaseun, who resides in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, was accused of defiling his first daughter at his residence between August 8, 2016 and April 2017.
The electrician, who denied having sexual intercourse with his daughter under cross examination by the prosecution counsel, Babajide Boye, claimed that he only sucked her breasts while he was drunk. The victim, however, told the court that her dad sucked her breasts to make them as big as her mates, and then ended up having sexual intercourse with her for four years.
The girl explained that her father started sexually abusing her when she was 12 years old and would often force her to drink salt in water solution after having sex with her and releasing his sperm inside her private parts.
The victim told the court that her mother left her father’s house in 2012 as they were always having misunderstanding. She said: “My four siblings and I were staying with my father in a room apartment. The whole thing started one day when my father called me and said that my breasts were not as big as those of my mates; he said that he would help to suck them so that they could get bigger.
“I was in Junior Secondary School (JSS3) when he started. He asked me to sleep with him on the bed and he began to suck my breasts.
