A 46-year old man named Chinedu Ifeleka, who was arrested by the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) for allegedly having sex with his daughter, has said why he did the despicable act.
Ifeleka said his curiosity had been aroused when the daughter (who was only 11 at the time) had started coming home late. He disclosed that the temptation had come while he was checking her underwear to ascertain her virginity. He blamed the act on the devil.
Ifeleka’s wife, Florence, 42, opened up about her daughter telling her about the incident when it first happened. She claimed she never knew it would repeat itself and out of fear of her husband’s violent nature, reported to her sister who is a member of the NSCDC.
Her intention, she said, was for her husband’s actions to be stopped, not for him to be imprisoned.
The daughter in question confirmed the story and begged that her father not put in jail as she promised never to engage in further incestuous acts with him.
