A 50-year-old man, Ede Tyndale is currently cooling off in one of the police cells in Lagos for raping his biological daughter, for eight years.
Ede Tyndale who started defiling his daughter when she was eleven years old, met his waterloo on the 9th of May, 2020, at about 2:30pm, when his wife Mrs Tyndale reported at Ikotun Police Station that her husband, Tyndale of Kajola Street, Ikotun is committing incest with their 19 years old daughter.
According to Mrs Tyndale, “Trouble started when I noticed some strange behaviours from my daughter and decided to find out why the sudden disrespect towards her father. She opened up to me that her father started having sexual intercourse with her when she was 11 years old.
“My husband often threatened violence whenever our daughter resisted him. He instilled so much fear in her that she found it difficult to report to anybody,” Mrs Tyndale added.
Sequel to the report at the Police station, the suspect was arrested by detectives from the Family Support Unit.
Confirming the arrest of the suspect, the Spokesperson, Lagos State Police Command DSP Bala Elkana said “Ede Tyndale confessed to commission of the crime.
