Daud Olatunji

In a distressing incident, Michael Ayinde, 51, and his son, Abiola, 19, faced remand orders from the Family Court in Ibadan on Tuesday over allegations of jointly raping Michael’s daughter, who is also Abiola’s sister.

Magistrate Mrs O. O. Ogunkanmi presided over the case, refraining from taking the defendants’ pleas. Instead, she directed their remand at the Abolongo Correctional Facility in Oyo town.

The accused, the father and older brother of the complainant, purportedly committed the heinous act at their residence in the Agboti Olosan area, Alakia, Ibadan.

Ogunkanmi explained that the remand aimed to await legal advice from the Oyo State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

 The court set the next hearing for February 21.

Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Gbemisola Adedeji, informed the court that between 2021 and December 2023, Abiola allegedly engaged in unlawful sexual intercourse with his younger sister, resulting in pregnancy without her consent. 

Simultaneously, Michael allegedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of his 17-year-old daughter during the same period, violating section 34 of the Oyo State Child Rights Law, 2006.
