Here Is The Reason Why I Impregnated My Daughter ─ 40-Yrs-Old Man

A 14-year-old girl (names withheld) recently shocked residents of Abaranje area of Ikotun, Lagos, after she claimed that her biological father was responsible for her pregnancy.

The Junior Secondary School 3 student told the residents that after impregnating her last year, her father hid her in a herbal home till she delivered.

It was gathered that her father, Johnson, a 40-year-old commercial motorcyclist, committed the incestuous act sometime in May 2017 but warned the daughter against revealing it to anyone.

However, trouble started after she confided in her aunt last week, who reported the case at Ikotun Police Division, leading to the arrest of the suspect.

According to the teenage girl, “I am in JSS 3; my mother is late. I have been living with my father and my siblings since my mother died.

“My father is an Okadaman. I was schooling before the incident. That night was the first time my father slept with me. When I discovered I was pregnant, I told him. I was afraid to let anyone know that my father is responsible for my pregnancy at that time.

“Obviously, my father was ashamed. He took me to Iya alagbo (local herb sellers), throughout the duration of my pregnancy. He didn’t want anyone to know.

“It was later I told my aunt that it was my father that got me pregnant, when she kept asking me who was responsible. She was shocked.”

Confessing, the suspect, Johnson, said it was a one-time thing.

His words: “I was drunk and wasn’t in control of my senses and actions. I didn’t know what I was doing when I slept with my daughter.

“My wife is late and I have been the one taking care of my three children, including her. I am not happy that it happened.

“When she told me that she was pregnant, I took her to a herbalist, because she is very young.

“I wanted them to take proper care of her, so she would deliver safely. I didn’t want anything to happen to her.”

Confirming the report, spokesperson for Lagos State Police Command, Chike Oti, said the case was reported initially at Ikotun Police Division, before it was transferred to the Gender Unit, where detailed investigation was carried out.
