A 52-year-old man who raped and impregnated his 18-year-old daughter wept for mercy as Ikeja Special Offences Court sentenced him to 21 years imprisonment on Thursday.
The convict identified as Akin Isaac knelt down in tears to plea with the court for mercy, saying he had an aged mother to look after.
During the court sitting, the prosecutor said that the defendant had started having intercourse with his 18-year-old daughter while she was six years old.
The Daily Reality recalls how police in Ogun State had arrested a 46-year-old Olusegun Oluwole for allegedly raping his 17-year-old daughter on weekends.
His arrest followed a complaint lodged at Ibara police station in Abeokuta by the man’s owned daughter (name withheld).
This was disclosed in a statement Sunday by the state Police Spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
Oyeyemi said the father forcefully raped his own daughter and threatened to kill her if she dared to tell anyone about the incident.
He stated that, “the girl said while she was sleeping in their one room apartment at Amolaso area of Abeokuta, on a night, her father, having observed that others were fast asleep suddenly grabbed her and forcefully had sex with her.
“On interrogation, the father of six, who confessed to the crime pleaded for forgiveness, claiming not knowing what came over him when he committed the crime,” Oyeyemi said.
