Kogi NSCDC arrests father who raped daughter for three years

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Kogi Command, has arrested a 41-year-old father for allegedly defiling his 16-year-old daughter.

 Speaking after parading the suspect at the NSCDC Command Headquarters, Lokoja, on Wednesday, May 10, the state’s Commandant, Ahmad Gandi, said the command received a complaint lodged by an NGO on May 5. According to him, the complaint was lodged on a case of defilement, rape and incest in which the suspect is the biological father of the victim.

The commandant said an investigation showed that the abusive act went on for three years from 2020 to 2023. Gandi said that the younger sister of the victim advised that they both commit suicide or kill their father to free themselves from the abusive act. 

The commandant said that the father had admitted committing the act, adding that the suspect would be charged to court afte concluding the investigation.

 The victim told newsmen that she had been sexually abused by her father since 2020 after her mother left home.

“It happened in 2020 when my mum left home and since then my Dad had been sexually abusing me. In 2021, my father impregnated me and took me to a clinic where they aborted the pregnancy I had for him. I couldn’t leave the house because of my younger sister as I was afraid my father could do the same thing to my sister. After aborting the pregnancy he continued the sexual abuse until I couldn’t take it anymore, which I have to report to an NGO who reported the case to NSCDC,” the victim said.

On his part, the suspect admitted to have committed the act, and had dis-flowered his daughter. He claimed he was hypnotized after his wife left her in 2020.

 “I actually committed the act but I don’t know how I did it. I love my wife very well; I begged her to come back home but she never did for the past three years. It is the same stage I was when my mother left my father that my wife left my children for me and went away. I love my wife but she never come back to me”, the suspect said
