He said:

“This is a battle I have tried to fight over the years and it seems to be much bigger than me, I am not going to withdraw any fact or truth so far as this case is concerned. If this is the only way my daughter can be liberated, if i go to prison then it is good. My happiness is that I am relieved even as I speak to you now.

“I can’t really remember when it started, but like I told you, it’s more of a spiritual thing. It is very unusual for a father to be sleeping with his own daughter. I am not a party to abortion, so whatever it is, the social welfare and other government officials involved in this matter know the best way to handle this pregnancy, as a father I cannot support abortion for my daughter, what if anything happened to her in the process.

“I don’t rape her regularly, it happens once or twice in a year, she used to be very cooperative, even when i don’t want it, she tries to force herself on me.”

On the part of the victim said each time she protested against her father’s act, her father would maltreat her and stop paying her school fees and also punish her severely.

“It was my father that impregnated me, he started when I was 12 years old till now.

“The first time he came and lay with me on the bed, when I tried to scream, he told me shut up that my mates were doing the same thing and anytime I refused to allow him, he would not buy anything for me again or pay my school fees.”

On his part, the Police Public Relations Officer in Rivers State, Nnamdi Omoni, said the suspect would be charged once investigations were concluded.

JUST IN: Ooni Of Ife reveals herbs that can treat coronavirus

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has admitted reporting a tricycle rider named, Lawal Moshood, to the Department of State Services [DSS] after his mobile phone was allegedly used to send a text message to the monarch.

One of the leaders of the #RevolutionNow protesters, Olawale Bakare, better known as Mandate, said that DSS officials did not see the SIM allegedly used by Moshood to send the message to Ooni yet arrested and kept him in unlawful detention since that period.

WuzupNigeria reports that Mandate is one of the recently arrested and detained #RevolutionNow protesters in Osogbo. He [Mandate] was released last weekend.

He said the young man had been denied access to a lawyer or his family members since he was picked up from Ijebu-Ode by the secret police.

Confirming knowledge of the young man’s ordeal even though trying to distance himself from it, Oba Ogunwusi, through his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Comrade Moses Olafare, said that Moshood was arrested for impersonating the Ife monarch.

“You will notice that some women and ladies have been defrauded by some people claiming to be Ooni, promising their victims marriage,” the statement read on Tuesday.

“There was even a recent case of a woman who sold her properties in the United States of America based on an online scammer, who impersonated the Ooni, promising to marry the woman.

“The only thing Ooni can do is to make an official report to the security agents who are constitutionally empowered to initiate investigations where the need arises.”

According to SaharaReporters, findings [it conducted] revealed that after a thorough scrutiny of the mobile phone of Moshood, who lives in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, the DSS was yet to find anything incriminating to tie him to the said offence.

Already, some civil society groups and human rights campaigners have called for the immediate release of Moshood by the secret police.

It is not the first time that high-profile Nigerians would be using the DSS to intimidate ordinary citizens over claims of impersonation through various guises.

For instance, in July 2019, Hanan, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, used her position to get the DSS to arrest a young businessman based in Delta State for using a mobile number previously used and abandoned by her.

The man named Anthony Okolie was issued the mobile number by telecoms firm, MTN, when he visited one of their outlets in Asaba, the state capital, to purchase a SIM.

Accused of using the mobile number to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by pretending to be Hanan, Okolie was kept in unlawful detention for 10 weeks until he was finally released by the secret police.

Three months after a court in Delta State ordered the DSS and all parties involved to pay the victim N10m as compensation for the violation of his rights, the agency has refused to do so.
