Father of 17 impregnates teenage daughter and destroys womb

A 42 year old father of seventeen children from different mothers, has impregnated his 16 year old daughter, and destroyed her womb in what appears to be a failed attempt at an abortion

The Ogun State Police Command has apprehended one Taofeek Oyeyemi who attempted to abort the pregnancy through a quack doctor, a move which resulted in life threatening complications

Reacting to the reports, the State Police Command’s spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, revealed that the victim has had to battle with her life following severe bleeding from the illegal act. It was learnt that the suspect was arrested following a complaint from the mother of the victim who reported at Ewekoro Police Station that her daughter was impregnated by her father, who also took her to a quack medical practitioner for abortion.

DSP Oyeyemi said 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, molested her, and attempted the abortion in a bid to cover up his mess

According to the statement retrieved from the police, “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 her daughter”.

The suspect is being investigated and would be prosecuted, Oyeyemi stated.
