The suspect also added that his daughter started enjoying the affair they both indulge in and sometimes throw herself on him.
Eromosele Mahmud narrates his ordeal:
“This is a battle I have tried to fight over the years and it seems to be much bigger than me. I am not going to withdraw any fact or truth as far as this case is concerned. If this is the only way my daughter can be liberated if I go to prison, then it is good. My happiness is that I am relieved even as I speak to you now. I can’t really remember when it started, but like I told you, it’s more of a spiritual thing. It is very unusual for a father to be sleeping with his own daughter. I am not a party to abortion, so whatever it is, the social welfare people and other government officials involved in this matter know the best way to handle this pregnancy; as a father, I cannot support abortion for my daughter, what if anything happens to her in the process. I don’t rape her regularly; it happens once or twice in a year; she used to be very cooperative, even when I don’t want it, she tries to force herself on me.”
According to the 16 years old pregnant daughter she stated that each time she protest against her father evil act, he begins his maltreatment towards her and also threatened not to pay her school fees.
16 years old pregnant daughter narrates her ordeal:
“It was my father who impregnated me; he started having sex with me when I was 12-year-old till now.The first time he came and lay with me on the bed, when I tried to scream, he told me to shut up that my mates were doing the same thing and anytime I refused to allow him, he would not buy anything for me and he would refuse to pay my school fees.”
