How Man Allegedly Threatened and Impregnated His 15-Year-Old Stepdaughter

40-year-old Victor Emafolomi, has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping and impregnating his 15-year-old stepdaughter, Keji, who lives with him and her mother in Ogun State.

Punch gathered that the suspect was arrested on Sunday by Agbado division police after the victim’s mother reported the case. It was learnt that, Victor raped Keji on two occasions in October and threatened to kill her if she told her mother.

Reports further say the first time she was raped, Keji was at a shop where she was learning hairdressing within the community when her stepfather telephoned her to come home to prepare lunch for him. While the poor girl was  cooking, Victor reportedly descended on her and dragged her into the bedroom.

Narrating how it happened, Keji said:

“That afternoon, he was drunk. He beat me up when I resisted. I explained to him that he was like a father to me, but he didn’t listen. He used a pillow to cover my mouth and raped me. He said he would kill me if I told my mother about the rape.

Two days after, he had sex with me again. That evening, he beat me up because I insisted that I would tell my mother when she came back from work. He went out and came back with two men after about 30 minutes. The men stared at me and left. He said they would be monitoring my movement and that if I reveal what he did to me, they would kill me.”

Punch reports that the suspect left home after the second encounter and did not return until about two weeks later.

“Before the incident, he had warned a boy called Owolabi to stay away from me because he didn’t want us to have a relationship,” Keji added.

Keji’s mother, Taiwo, explained she was familiar of the time her daughter usually menstruates, but became worried when Keji didn’t at the usual time. She said:

“I took her to a clinic in our area and it was confirmed that she was pregnant. I begged her to tell me who impregnated her, but she refused.”

Keji, later confided in her mother after much persuasion, and she reportedly passed out afterwards.

“I was very shocked, but I could not fault the revelation because my husband had abandoned home for some days and there was no misunderstanding between us. I think it was because of what he did,” Taiwo said.

However, the suspect denied the allegations, explaining that it was Owolabi, the boy he allegedly asked to stay away from his stepdaughter, that impregnated her. He said:

“I am a driver. I left home because my wife is stubborn; she doesn’t take corrections. I left home to punish her so that she would change for better.

I never had sex with her daughter and I didn’t know anything about the pregnancy. I don’t want it aborted. When she is delivered of the baby, we will carry out a DNA test on the baby,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ambibola Oyeyemi, has said the case would be transferred to the command’s headquarters in Eleweran, Abeokuta, for further investigation.

“The victim confirmed that the suspect had carnal knowledge of her several times and the pregnancy test conducted on her was positive,” he added.
