For allegedly defiling his two daughters aged between six and nine years, a 48-year-old welder, Femi Onifade, has been arrested by officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ondo State Command.
Briefing journalists, the NSCDC’s Public Relations Officer, Femi Omole said the suspect would be charged to court for law to determine his fate.
According to him, the suspect who reside in Oluwatuyi’s area of Akure, the State capital, had earlier confessed to his wife and begged for her forgiveness and not to expose him, but denied committing the offence when he was eventually arrested.
Relaying the information given her by her sexually-molested daughters, the mother of the victims said when she asked the smallest one about what their father has been doing to them, she said the little girl told her that the suspect usually inserted something in her vagina, licked it and warned her not to tell anyone or be liable to five strokes of cane.
The agony of the innocent children, who were confirmed defiled clinically at the Federal Medical Centre Annex, Akure, came to the knowledge of the public after the neighbors felt uneasy with their cry whenever their mother wasn’t around.
Defending himself, the suspect said in order to prove his innocence approached the Deji’s palace to subject him to oath-taking but couldn’t get it done before men of the NSCDC got hold of him.
It was however, revealed that the suspect had a domestic crisis with the mother of the victims which made the woman to be excusing herself from him, leaving the children alone.
