Officers of the Ogida Police Division in Egor Local Government Area of Edo State have arrested one Osaro for allegedly defiling his nine-year-old daughter in Benin, the state capital.

The mother of the victim told our correspondent that ‎her husband had pushed her out of their apartment at about 8pm on Christmas Day and locked her two daughters inside the room, after a misunderstanding, before defiling one of them.

She explained that the nine-year-old victim had told her the next day that her father had canal knowledge of her after locking her (the mother) outside their room.

She also said that the 45-year-old suspect had threatened to kill her when she tried to physically examine her daughter.

“On Christmas Day, he drove me outside at about 8pm‎ and was alone inside with the children.

“The next day, my daughter told me what he did to her. When I wanted to examine my daughter, he beat me up but neighbours intervened,” the woman said.

‎It was, however, learnt that the suspect had earlier feigned repentance after allegedly having canal knowledge of his 17-year-old step-daughter.

But the victim told our correspondent that her father had victimised her severally and restrained from raising an alarm by covering her mouth.

‎The Police Public Relations Officer‎, DSP Joseph Edoigiawerie, however, stated that the matter was under investigation.
