A seven-year-old boy, Wisdom Adefemi, yesterday alleged that his father, Olusegun Adefemi, sexually abused his three-year-old sister five times.

He also accused him of attempting to penetrate him and his five-year-old brother, Godspower, through the anus.

Wisdom spoke with The Nation at the police headquarters in Ikeja.

He alleged that their father beat him up for refusing his sexual overtures.

The boy said: “My daddy slept with my younger sister from here (pointing at the minor’s private parts) He put her on the floor and did it. It was not once, it was five times.

“He wanted to penetrate me from the back, but I refused. He wanted to do the same thing to my younger brother, Godspower. When we refused, he beat us up.”

Police Commissioner Edgal Imohimi said the suspect was arrested on February 2 at 6, Ipakan Street, Ijede, Lagos State, after an official of Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps (LNSC), Adekoya Sesan, reported the incident.

The suspect denied the allegation, insisting that he was innocent.

He said the allegations against him were shocking, wondering what could have prompted them.

Adefemi said: “I am shocked at the allegations. I am innocent. I have never done it and I will never do it. I heard that my children accused me of defiling their sister. They never said it before me.

“I thought that they (the police) would bring them (my children) before me and ask them so that I can hear it from them, but they did not.

“You should know they are children and can be lured by biscuit or sweet to say anything. I do not know where that came from. I know I usually beat up my kids when they do something wrong. I don’t think this is an offence because I don’t want my children to become wayward.

“Their mother left over a year ago and since then, I have been with them. I do bricklaying jobs sometimes. At other times, I work as a conductor to provide for our needs.”

The police boss said Adefemi separated from his wife over alleged spousal abuse.

He alleged: “The man injured his daughter in the private parts as a result of forceful penetration. He caned the girl’s siblings each time they did not allow him to penetrate them from the anus.

“The girl has been taken to Mirabel Medical Centre for examination and treatment, while her siblings have been accommodated in a temporary home. The suspect will be arraigned after investigation.”
