A 60-year-old driver, Amusan Ashiru, who slept with his 12-year-old daughter, Boluwatife Ashiru after being arrested by the police gave reason for doing the bad act saying:
He said: “Her mother is not staying with me because we were never married.
“I just impregnated her by mistake.
“I am now married to a woman who I really love and I have two wonderful children for.
“On the day the incident happened my wife went out to buy somethings from the market then I don’t know what came over me, and as I saw my daughter, I began to have this sexual urge then I raped her forcefully.
“During that time I was not myself, it was like the devil entered inside me, although I was not drunk and I was physically and mentally alright.
“It just had to be the devil that triggered me to commit such sinful act.
“And I wish it had never happened I feel so ashamed.
“I also know I have brought great shame to my family which am sorry for.”
A woman had reported the incident to the police, after Boluwatife was seen on the street at night, begging her for a place to sleep and she explained to the woman what happened.
