A 53-year-old man, Yusuf Alabi, was paraded by the Kogi state police command in front of newsmen for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his two daughters.
According to the acting police commissioner, Austine Evbakhabokun, Alabi was apprehended following a complaint by one of his sons, Abdulmalik to the state investigation and intelligence bureau, alleging that his father was having sexual intercourse with two of his younger sisters.
It was also gathered that when the boy challenged his father for committing the act, the suspect threatened to kill him if the news got to the public, trying to convince the son that he was protecting his sisters.
Vanguard Newspapers reports:
Austine said the suspect has also confessed to the crime with an explanation that he committed the illicit acts in order to save his children from premature death.
The suspect also made a shocking statement while being questioned by journalists that none of his daughters offered resistance anytime he approached them for sexual intercourse.
In a shocking twist, the wife of the suspect has called on the police not to prosecute her husband saying though he might have committed the crime but the issue is a ‘family matter’ and should be allowed to be settled in the family way.
