Oh Dear! Man R*pes His Only Daughter For Three Years

A 52-year-old retired civil servant, Paul Akpederi, is now cooling his heels in a Lagos police cell after losing control of himself due to lust of the flesh.

The Delta State indigene, who lives on Adegbite Street, Ori-Okuta, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos, was alleged to have r*ped his 15-year-old only daughter, Rose, for over three years.

Paul started s*xually abusing Rose when she was in JSS3. When the "secret" got to the knowledge of a teacher, Paul allegedly changed her school.

The suspect was said to have continued the abuse until she got to SS2 in her new school.

According to Punch, Rose’s former teacher was said to have run into her sometime in October 2017 and told a friend about Rose’s plight, who then alerted the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender through the agency’s social media platform.

It was learnt that officials of the agency reported the case to the police at the Owutu division, who then arrested the suspect and rescued the 15-year-old.

A social worker, who was part of the rescue, told Punch that his started sleeping with his only daughter after separating from her mother.

He said, “The man had been defiling his daughter since the wife left him. She is their only daughter and when the marriage broke down, he took custody of her. That was when the problem started.

“He started sleeping with her when she was barely 12 years old. She was in JSS 3 then. They were about to start their final exams in the junior school when her colleagues found her crying uncontrollably. When they could not console her, they called the attention of one of their teachers, who then took her to a room.

“She told the teacher what she had been going through, the teacher informed Rose’s pastor at a branch of the Redeemed Church, who counselled her. Her father was invited and that was the end of the case.

“The man, desperate to cover up the crime, changed her school and she lost contact with the teacher.”

A member of the OPD team that visited the victim’s school said she initially denied the defilement and attempted to exonerate her father.

The social worker who interviewed Rose said she later gave a chilling account of her ordeal.

“She said her father had been sleeping with her since she was in JSS 3 and he slept with her at least three times in a month. She said he slept with her in August and September 2017 as well. She explained that he always poured his semen into her private parts and he never used contraceptives. She said anytime he slept with her, he would tell her not to tell anybody. The girl said she could not tell people because she thought nobody would believe her,” the official said.

It was gathered that she was placed on medication over complaints that she had yet to see her menstrual period, just as some growths were allegedly spotted in her private parts.

She was reportedly taken to Mirabel Centre, LASUTH, Ikeja, for medical tests.

The result of the tests, which had been given to the police, showed that Rose’s hymen was broken and there was “continuous penetration” of her private parts.

After the victim’s confession, the Owutu Divisional Police Officer requested that she be brought back to the station.

In a drama that ensued at the DPO’s office, Paul, who had initially boasted, was alleged to have become humble after being confronted with his daughter’s confession.

“When DPO asked what he had to say to the daughter’s allegations, he said, ‘Oga, I am in your hands o’. The DPO ordered that he should be taken back to the cell,” a source said.

The Director of the OPD, Mrs. Olubukola Salami, confirmed the incident, adding that the agency would pursue the case to the end.
