66-year-old Sunday Etukudoh, has been arrested for allegedly raping and impregnating a teenager, Ofonime Saturday Okon.
The 13-year-old girl, who is the daughter of his cousin was asked to go live with the old man after requesting for help with his house chores.
Ofonime, who is already four months pregnant, described her ordeal saying she was threatened with a kitchen knife to succumb to the first rape and subsequently had no choice but to continue honouring Papa’s subsequent demands.
Pa admitted to committing the crime while rolling on the floor, when being interrogated by the Crime Investigation Department at the police headquarters Ikot Akpanabia, Uyo.
He said, “I have only two children and I will be very happy if her family would allow her to give birth to this child for me, I will take good care of her, I promise. Please don’t charge me to court, I would die there. I will give them whatever they want”.
The case is currently being investigated.
