The DPO Owode-Egbado, SP Olabisi Elebute, quickly led her men to the place where the Baale was promptly arrested.
At first, the village head denied the allegation, but later fainted and was taken to the hospital for resuscitation after he was confronted by the victim and one of his ex-wives.
Oyeyemi said the ex-wife confirmed that she left him after she caught the village head while having sex with his daughter.
However, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward A. Ajogun has ordered the transfer of the suspect to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State CIID for investigation and prosecution.
