The police in Nigeria’s federal capital territory have apprehended a 46-year-old man, identified as Jude, for having the carnal knowledge of his two daughters and impregnating them in the process.
The incident happened at Ikwa community, Zuba Chiefdom, in Gwagwalada Area Council of the FCT.
The accused reportedly has four kids; two females and two males.
According to a neighbour, identified as Idris, the incident came to public knowledge after one of the daughters reported the matter to her fiancé who was a police officer in Minna, Niger State.
He further disclosed that before the arrest, the accused conspired with his wife to abort the pregnancies and sweep the matter under the carpet.
He added, “In fact, when the man was taken to the police station, his wife was trying to cover up the matter, but her daughters opened up and told them how their father had been sleeping with them and how they aborted their pregnancies.’’
A police officer at the division who preferred anonymity, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect would be charged to court.
Spokeswoman of the FCT Police Command, DSP Adeh Josephine, has not issued a statement regarding the incident.
