Investigations revealed that the man, who hails from the south-eastern part of the country was arrested following a complaint by his wife that he had been sexually abusing their daughters aged 10, 15 and 17 for quite some time.
Findings showed that the suspected rapist, was also accused of sleeping with his sister some years ago in Lagos, while the family lived there, and that led to the separation of the couple.
Our reporter gathered that when the wife could no longer bear the embarrassment of the husband’s strange behaviour, she reported him to his relations and subsequently moved to the village with the last born, leaving him with four of the children upon advise from relations.
Further findings indicated that the husband thereafter relocated from Lagos to Abuja with the children, including a boy who is now 19 years old, and they have been living since then at Aso village.
Sources close to the family told our reporter that the man has since been suspected of committing the crime, but neither the children nor neighbours came forward to talk about it.
However, nemesis caught up with the man when he complained to the wife that one of the girls was disobedient to him and the woman decided to come to Abuja to unravel the reasons behind her daughter’s behaviour.
Our reporter learnt that upon arrival, she then interrogated the daughter who disclosed to her that her father had been forcefully sleeping with her, saying that was the cause of the trouble.
Further investigations revealed that the mother of the girls made additional findings from the other two daughters who also told her that their father had been sleeping with them as well.
Disturbed by the ugly revelation, the mother reported the incident to the police and the husband was subsequently arrested and detained.
Our reporter visited the Mararaba ‘A’ Division Police Station to confirm the incident and was told by a police source who did not want his name in print that the case has since been transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Lafia, Nasarawa State, for investigation.
Meanwhile, it was gathered that if the allegations against the man are found to be true, he would be charged for rape and incest which if proved would see him jailed for several years.
