Daugh­ter in Ogun from quack doc­tor

The Punch - - NEWS -

even­tu­ally ar­rested.

“The sus­pect, who was said to have 17 chil­dren from dif­fer­ent women, on in­ter­ro­ga­tion con­fessed to have slept with the vic­tim sev­eral times, which re­sulted in her preg­nancy.

“In or­der for his se­cret not to be ex­posed, he de­cided to pro­cure an abor­tion for the girl.

“Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that the vic­tim’s mother had sep­a­rated from the sus­pect years back and the vic­tim had been liv­ing with her un­til about six months ago when the sus­pect force­fully took the girl away from her mother.

“All ef­forts made by the mother to take cus­tody of her daugh­ter proved abortive. It was when the mother came to visit her daugh­ter that she dis­cov­ered the great atroc­ity com­mit­ted by the sus­pect against the daugh­ter.”

The PPRO said the state Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Ken­neth Ebrim­son, had di­rected that the sus­pect be trans­ferred to the An­ti­hu­man Traf­fick­ing and Child Labour Unit of the State Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion and In­tel­li­gence Depart­ment for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion and prose­cu­tion.
