A 30-year-old man, Basiru Audu has been arrested for allegedly defiling his six-year-old daughter in Niger State.
He blamed the wife for the incest, saying she travels very often.
“I blame my wife for not being around when I need sex. She travels a lot and that was why I have to sleep with my daughter. What a shameful thing I have done.
“That night I was having a burning sensation to have sex and since my wife was not around I have no option than to sleep with my daughter to ease off tension”, The Nation quoted him as saying.
Audu was reported to the police by a concerned neighbour who noticed the daughter walking abnormally.
When she was asked what the matter was, the little girl said, “Daddy put something inside my wee-wee”.
The suspect said he regretted what he had done and pleaded for forgiveness.
“I have done an abominable thing that Allah will not forgive me, I hope my wife and my children will find a place in their hearts to forgive me, it is unfortunate.”
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar condemned the father’s action.
“When a father decides to sleep with his biological daughter. I think the world is coming to an end”, he said, adding that the matter would be charged to court once investigation is concluded.
