Lagos: Man Arrested for Sleeping and Impregnating his 15 Year-old Daughter
Raymond Anyanwu, a 41 year-old man who lives with his family has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command after it was found that he impregnated his teenage daughter of 15 years old at their home residence in Ajao Estate Isolo in Lagos.
Vanguard reports that Anyanwu made a confession that he had been sleeping with his daughter since this year’s January after he lost his job. He claims frustration pushed him into committing incest.
Raymond Anyanwu’s sexual escapade with his daughter was exposed when the girl’s aunt suspected that she was pregnant. A test which was run on her showed positive confirming what her aunt suspected. When the girl was confronted about who had been sleeping with her, she said her father.
Raymond Anyanwu while confessing to the crime said that he started sleeping with his 15 years old daughter sometime in January after he lost his job. He said he was a transporter. He said he resorted to taking alcohol after he lost his job and could not meet up with his responsibilities as the head of the house.
However, he had unleashed serious beating on his wife and sternly warned her not to reveal it to no one when it was discovered that he was the one responsible for her daughter’s pregnancy. The mother of the girl had quickly arranged for an abortion for her. On Wednesday, the 22nd of June he was arrested after the Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Social Development got to know about the matter and alerted the police.
Currently, the 15-year-old girl is in protective custody by the Lagos State Government. At present, the case is being investigated at the Gender Unit of Lagos State Police Command and will be charged to Ikeja Magistrate Court today the 28th of June.
