A 13 year old girl identified as Odunayo was allegedly raped and impregnated by her stepfather, Femi Orojo, in Okitipupa town, Ondo state.
Orojo was alleged to have molested his step daughter in October 2015, when his wife- Bunmi Joshua was not home.
Joshua, who had been married to the suspect for six years without any child, said she felt nauseated upon the discovery that her daughter was five-months pregnant.
“It was one of my neighbour who called my attention to it recently that my girl was pregnant and anytime time I asked her about who was responsible for the pregnancy, she would be crying that if she said it she would die. I then took her to my pastor and after much pressure; she confessed that it was my husband.”
“She told my pastor that when I was not around sometimes in October, my husband forcefully entered into her room with a machete and threatened to kill her if she did not allow him to sleep with her.”
“After gaining entrance into her room, he forcefully had sex with her. After the sexual intercourse, my child said he brought out a red handkerchief to swear and warn her never to tell anybody or she would die. That is why she did not tell anyone.”
Spokesperson of the state police command, Femi Joseph confirmed the incident on Wednesday, stating that the police has started investigation on the matter while noting that the suspect was yet to be arrested.
