A 42-year-old plumber, Idowu Lasisi, has been arrested by police in Lagos for allegedly molesting his daughters.
Lasisi was brought to the state Police Command at Ikeja on Thursday after his 15-year-old daughter alleged he sexually molested her three times.
The suspect, it was gathered, started the molestation with his 19-year-old daughter who fled their Ketu residence after she could no longer bear the burden.
Our correspondent gathered that his sexual attraction to the girl forced his wife, Mrs. Labanke Lasisi, to leave their one-room apartment.
Lasisi was said to have turned to the 15-year-old girl after wife and eldest daughter left, giving her N500 each time he slept with her.
But the suspect denied the allegation, claiming the victim framed him up because he scolded her.
A source said: “The victim was brought by her mother to the station and we have sent her for checkup. The mother said she left her husband two years ago, when she discovered he was sleeping with their eldest daughter.
“The woman is a trader and she left her three children behind. When the older daughter couldn’t stand the thing, she ran away from home and no one knows her whereabouts.
“According to the younger girl, her father started coming to her one night last year and he gave her N500. She said there were times she would fight him off but that he succeeded in having sex with her three times. Out of frustration, she stopped going to school.”
Confirming the incident, the state Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, said the victim has been taken to the Mirable Centre for medical examination, adding that investigation was ongoing on the matter.
