A 14-year-old girl has accused her father, Olukayode Joseph of sedating her with drugs before sexually assaulting her in Ogun State.
According to the Ogun So-Safe Corps, the 50-year-old suspect was arrested late Thursday by its operatives on the grounds of molesting the victim.
This was disclosed on Friday by the spokesman of the security outfit.
According to him, the agency acted after receiving a distress call that Joshua, a resident of Akinbo Phase 2, Opposite Ola Fatia House, Olambe in Ifo Local Government Area of the State, had allegedly had carnal knowledge of his biological daughter.

He further explained that the State Commander, Soji Ganzallo, immediately ordered the Divisional Officer of the Corps in Oke-Aro/Olambe, SC Akeem Olaiya, to arrest the suspect.
Yusuf also said that it became necessary for the Agbado Area Command to mobilise more men to the scene to protect the alleged rapist against jungle justice.
“During preliminary investigation, the suspect confessed to the crime, and pleaded for mercy after realising that there is nowhere to hide his secret deals with his innocent daughter,” Yusuf said.
It was further gathered that the victim had accused her father of serially sleeping with her after sedating her with drugs.
She said, “I only used to notice white discharges from my private part.”
However, the suspect had denied sedating his daughter before sleeping with her, saying it was his first time of having sex with her.
Yusuf said the suspect and the victim had been transferred to the Ajuwon Police Division for further investigations.
