Man Tastes Daughter To Confirm Virginity
A 37-year-old security guard, Wasiu Orilonise, has confessed to defiling his 15-year-old daughter.
Orilonise was arraigned before Oyo State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ibadan on one-count of having unlawful carnal knowledge of his daughter.
He claimed to have committed the said offence because he wanted to test the virginity of his daughter to protect her.
The prosecutor, Mr. Sunday Ogunremi, told the court that the accused, in December 2018, at Omo Village, Agbofieti, Ibadan, in the Ibadan magisterial district, did rape one Orilonise Adenike.
Ogunremiý said the offence was contrary to and punishable under Section 34, Subsections 1 and 2 of the Child Rights Law of Oyo State of Nigeria, 2006.
No plea wasý, however, taken during the arraignment.
However, when the Chief Magistrate, Mr Taiwo Olaniran, sought to know from the accused what could have pushed him into defiling his biological daughter, Orilonise said that since he lost his wife a few years ago, he had been taking care of Adenike and others siblings.
He further told the court that he committed the act in an attempt to protect his daughter and check if she had lost her virginity.
Upon discovering that she was still intact, he started having sex regularly with her both in the morning before she leaves for school and at night.
ýThe magistrate criticized fathers who were fond of sexually abusing their daughters and other under-aged girls.
He thereafter ordered that the accused be remanded in Agodi Prison pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and adjourned the case till July 30, 2019.
