News Man arrested for 'raping' own daughter for eight years

The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terror groups are getting support from some Nigerians.

A 50-year-old man has been arrested by Lagos state police command for alleged defilement of his 19-year-old daughter since she was 11.

The spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, said the suspect was arrested after his 45-year-old wife reported the matter at the Ikotun police station.

According to Bala Elkana, the man and his family reside at Kajola Street in Ikotun.

The suspect’s incestuous behavior was discovered by his wife after she noticed their daughter was being disrespectful towards him.

The woman was said to have asked her daughter what was wrong and she opened up that her father has been raping her since she was 11.

The victim said her father threatened to hurt her each time she resisted him.

The victim also stated that the father instilled so much fear in her that she found it difficult to report to anybody.

However, Bala Ekana stated that the man confessed to committing the crime.

He stated that after a thorough investigation, the suspect was charged to Chief Magistrate Court ll Ogba on five counts of incest, rape, sexual harassment, defilement and sexual assault on May 11.

Bala added that the suspect has been detained, while the court adjourned the case for further hearing until June 15.
