Randy Father Rapes Step Daughter
A randy father, Mr. Ogunlana Bola has been asked by an Akure Customary Court to appear before it for allegedly raping his step daughter.
His wife, Mrs Olamide Bola asked the court to dissolve the marriage between her and the husband, saying she could not cope with his sexual immorality.
She said, “I have caught him more than once having sex with my 11-year-old daughter and I cannot cope with this.”
She pleaded the court to dissolve the 5-year-old marriage that produced a 4-year-old boy.
“My husband sexual urge is like a curse and I cannot tolerate it,” the wife said.
The complainant who wept in court regretted her marriage with the respondent.
Ruling on the case, Mr Ayodele Omotola, the court’s president ordered hearing notice to be served on the respondent for appearance in the next adjourned date.
The case was subsequently adjourned till January 18 for continuation of hearing.
Cases of incest and sexual violence have permeated the society in the recent time and according to a respondent, the judiciary is not doing enough to curb the criminality.
Most times the victims are related to the offenders and they seek settlement out of the court.
“If the judiciary has always insisted that the law and justice must take its course perhaps the menace of sexual violence would have died down.
