EYE WITNESS (SON) ACCOUNT
The suspect’s eldest child who was made available to journalists gave account of how his father did the act
Says: “My daddy slept with my sister from here (points at the private parts)
“Put her on the ground and then did it. It was not once; it was five times.
“He beat my younger brother and me because we did not allow him to do it to us.”
The incident began after Olusegun separated from his wife about a year ago while the 3 children live with him in their Ijede home at Ikorodu
The 32-year-old father amidst tears, while dening the allegation, however accepted to beating the children
Says: “I am a bricklayer. I was accused of sleeping with my child; but I did not do it. I usually travel for work and spend three days
“I put them in the care of my neighbour, Iya Amoda. I am concerned about their upkeep and that is why I go to work regularly
“Was planning to take them to my grandmother when a neighbourhood official came on Friday and said I slept with my child
“And I didn’t do it and I cannot do it. My wife left us over a year ago and I have been taking care of them
“Don’t know who to hold responsible for the injuries (to her private parts). I beat them whenever they do something bad.”
