Man arrested for defiling daughter in Edo state
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.
