31 December 2014, 10:59

Abuja - A 55-year-old Edo man has been arrested for the alleged defilement of his 9-year-old daughter, Nigerian Tribune has revealed.

The suspect, known only as Osaro, was reported to officials by his wife Stella, who also added that he had previously impregnated her 17-year-old daughter.

Stella is alleged to have returned to the matrimonial home after her husband repented for his previous crime and claimed to have turned over a new leaf.

After begging for forgiveness and pleading with his wife, the man settled back into his home before he proceeded to defile the minor.

After confronting her husband about his offence, Osaro allegedly denied all accusations until her was caught by his wife on top of his daughter.

Following an examination on her daughter, Stella confronted her husband and was beaten up as a result. Neighbors intervened and had the man detained.

The victim, who told officials of her ordeal, pleaded with police to jail the man.
