Taiwo Olubayode, who claimed to be a pastor has been sentenced to nine years imprisonment with hard labour, by a family court in Oke-Eda Akure, Ondo State, for impregnating his 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth Bosede.
The self-acclaimed pastor was reported to be married to three wives and blessed with 13 children.
A police source, while speaking concerning the criminal offence of the pastor said: “It was discovered during investigation that the victim, after she found out she was pregnant, alerted the father. He gave her some concoctions to drink; he wanted to abort the pregnancy. But the concoctions failed. After repeated attempts and with the pregnancy advancing, he left it. The suspect tried to smuggle the victim out of the house to a private clinic for an abortion but the girl refused and threatened to raise the alarm.
”The suspect, in anger instructed the victim to stay indoors to avoid suspicion from church members and neighbours. Whenever neighbours asked after Bosede, Olubayode would tell them she traveled to visit her mother. It was later discovered that he got his daughter pregnant and kept her locked up.”
The sexual relationship between father and daughter, which had been going on for years, became public knowledge after Bosede’s baby bump started becoming very obvious.
Bosede stopped going to school and eventually gave birth to a baby boy, which was named Micheal.
According to Olubayode, he was tempted by the devil to have s3x with his daughter.
