It is rather appalling that some men derive pleasure from sexual intercourse with underage girls and some go as far as doing it with their daughters.
A Nigerian man identified as Dominic Johnson was arrested and has been charged to court for sleeping with his own 14-year-old daughter.
The despicable act took place at Onitire Avenue, Abaranje area in Ikotun, Lagos
According to PM Express, Johnson was charged to the Ikeja magistrate court on Wednesday, March 14.
It was further reported that the man did not get his teenage daughter pregnant but she has given birth to a baby girl.
Both mother and child were present in court when Johnson was arraigned. Johnson was said to have resorted to his daughter after the death of his wife who gave birth to three children.
However, the man warned his daughter not to tell anyone but she could no longer hide the paternity of the child when she put to bed. It was gathered that the victim finally revealed to the sister and Johnson was confronted.
He immediately threatened to kill them including the baby. The case was first reported to the Ikotun police division before it was transferred to the gender section at the Lagos state police command, Ikeja.
Johnson disclosed to the police that his wife died and had no money to marry another woman, so he was tempted to sleep with his daughter without intentions of getting her pregnant.
Following this statement he was found culpable and arraigned in court for defiling a minor.
However, his plea was not taken as the presiding magistrate ordered him to be remanded in prison without an option of bail. The case has been adjourned till May 8.
