The Lagos State zonal office of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has got hold of a 46-year-old man identified as Chinedu Ifeleka, for defiling his 14-year-old daughter for 3 good years.
The man who was paraded before journalists on Monday September 9, reportedly started abusing his daughter in 2016.
“This incidence according to the daughter happened twice when she was 11 years old. The victim said she reported to her mother but no action was taken”, Kehinde Mary Bada, Public Relations Officer of Civil Defence said.
The suspect’s daughter, Chinwedu in her statement after the arrest of her dad said he abused her again on August 9 while her mother was away to her paternal grandmother’s place.

“The daughter said her father woke her up at about 2:25 a.m to start touching her inappropriately after which he had carnal knowledge of her,” the Officer said.
Confirming the incident, the victim’s mother Mrs. Florence Ifeleka said she was scared to report the first two incidences as her husband threatened to deal with her ruthlessly if she does.
Mr Chinedu who confessed to the abuse, said his daughter’s habit of coming home late whenever she leaves the house made him curious over her virginity.
He went on to blame his actions on the devil, as he was always tempted to start abusing his daughter after a continuous check of her panties.
The Commandant, Mr. Cyprian E Otoibhi told newsmen that “the suspect will face the full wrath of the law and will be handed over to the appropriate agency for further investigation and prosecution.”
