According to The police prosecutor, Inspector Monica Ikebuilo,  the accused Bayo Akinwete committed the offence on June 18, 2019, in the Olorunsogo area of Ado Ekiti.

The prosecutor stated, “The victim told the police that she and her nine-year-old sister had been living with their father since their mother abandoned them with him.

“The victim alleged that her father once gave her alcohol to drink following which she slept off. She alleged that when she woke up, she saw him on top of her.

“The victim said her father used to tell her to hold and massage his manhood. The victim consequently reported her father to a neighbour, who reported the case to the police.”
