Paul Akpederi is cooling his heels in a Lagos police cell after eating the forbidden fruit.

The Delta State indigene, who lives on Adegbite Street, Ori-Okuta, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, was alleged to have raped his 15-year-old daughter, Rose, for over three years.

It was learnt that Paul started sexually abusing Rose when she was in Junior Secondary School Three.

When the secret got to the knowledge of a teacher, Paul allegedly changed her school.

The suspect was said to have continued the abuse until she got to Senior Secondary School Two in her new school.

Rose’s former teacher was said to have run into her sometime in October 2017 and told a friend about Rose’s plight, who then alerted the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender through the agency’s social media platform.

Officials of the agency were said to have reported the case to the police at the Owutu division, who then arrested the suspect and rescued the 15-year-old.

The Director of the OPD, Olubukola Salami, confirmed the incident, adding that the agency would pursue the case to the end.
