Man arrested for impregnating two of his daughters

A 58-year-old man from Agbura community, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State was on Thursday arrested and detained by officers attached to the Azikoro Police Station for sexually assaulting and impregnating two of his daughters.

The incident came to light after the suspect (name withheld) had attempted severally to rape his third daughter.

The 14-year-old daughter, a student of the Community Secondary School, Agbura, was said to have reported the sexual harassment by her father
to the school counselor during a guardian and counselling session.

The school counselor, who is also the victim’s class teacher, reported the case to the Ministry of Women Affairs which immediately alerted the police.

DailyPost gathered that the suspects arrest was initiated by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Women Affairs, Mrs. Pulu Zifawei.

 

 

The suspect’s son who declined to
mention his name, said he became aware of his father’s shameful acts at the age of 12.

“Our mother had reported the matter to the members of the family. On that day, our father nearly beat my mother to death. Each time the issue came up, my father would beat my mother,” he said.

When contacted for confirmation of the arrest, the Police command Spokesperson, Mr. Alex Akhigbe, was to be in a meeting as at the time of filing this report but a senior police officer at the Azikoro Police Station confirmed the suspect’s arrest.

He however declined to speak further, noting that only the Police Public Relations Officer can give further details.
