The Osun State Command of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSDC) has apprehended 34-year old Mohammed Ahmed for having sex with his 14-year-old daughter.
Ahmed who denied having sex with her daughter everyday claimed that he only slept with her six times since April, 2015 when the illicit act started.
Spokesman of the command, Mr. Wale Folarin, said Ahmed was arrested following a tip-off from neighbours of the suspect.
He said: “The incident was related to us by one of the neighbours of Ahmed who usually heard the cries of the girls every night. He told us that he inquired from the girl why she cried every night and she confessed to him.”
It was gathered that the girl and her nine-year-old sister live in a single room apartment with their father following the separation of their parents.
Ahmed who divorced his wife, the mother of the victim, got married to another woman who, it was gathered, bore him two children before she died two years ago.
The suspect said: “I don’t know what came over me from April that I started having sex with my daughter and each time I had sex with her, I did not see anything wrong in it. I only have sex with her six times since April 2015.”
