According to him, “Upon a report recieved by a good samaritan operatives of the above named Suspect for forcefully having canal knowledge of his biological daughter to the extent of getting her pregnant,”.
Police explained that the mother of the hapless girl who hails from Cote d’ Voire (Ivory Coast) was said to have abandoned the marriage and returned back to her maiden home when the girl was an infant and left her with the father.
He stated that the the dad, Mr Uchenna, then began to take undue advantage of her and serially had canal knowledge of the unsuspecting girl.
The PPRO added, “He was said to have forced her to bed by threatening to kill her with a matchet.”
The command spokesman revealed that investigation has commenced, and he will be charged to court accordingly in due course.
Nigerian Pilot reliably gleaned from the community that the suspect was apprehended when his daughter disclosed to prying neighbours that his father was responsible for her pregnancy after much pressure because her father threatened to kill her, if she dared expose him.
The villagers, on getting wind of the abomination, ran amok, took Uchenna and paraded him naked across the village raining abusive songs on him.
