A forty-seven-year-old man who has been arrested for impregnating his 16-year old daughter is insisting that the pregnancy must not be aborted.
Eromonsele Mahmud, from Edo State, had been raping his daughter since 2017 when she was twelve years old.
Speaking to journalists at the Rivers State Police Command headquarters, Mr Mahmud said he didn’t know what possessed him.
The father of three who is also a single parent said even if he goes to prison he is satisfied that his daughter has been freed from whatever has been making both of them to have sex unhindered.
The father claimed he was fed up with complying with the unseen forces compelling him to sleep with his daughter that was why he reported the matter to the police.
He claimed he does not know himself whenever the forces possess him to commit incest which he accepted is abominable and is ready to pay dearly for it but that his daughter’s safety is paramount to him even in prison.
There was however a twist to the story when the daughter gave her own account.
She told officials of the Rivers State Ministry of Social Welfare and Rehabilitations that her father always forced himself on her whenever he pleases him.
She alleged he threatened to stop paying her school fees if she ever deny him sex. She is currently in the custody of the ministry pending the investigation and subsequent arraignment of her father.
Until this ugly incident the daughter who is the first in the family with two sons have not seen their mother for years and all efforts to locate her have not yielded results as gathered.
Meanwhile, the father has been detained by the police awaiting the outcome of their investigation.
This was confirmed by spokesperson of Rivers State Police command, Nnamdi Omoni during the parading of the man.
